      Members Only Fluid Forum View   08/08/2017

      Fluid forum view allows members only to get right to the meat of this community; the topics. You can toggle between your preferred forum view just below to the left on the main forum entrance. You will see three icons. Try them out and see what you prefer.   Fluid view allows you, if you are a signed up member, to see the newest topic posts in either all forums (select none or all) or in just your favorite forums (select the ones you want to see when you come to Fishing Minnesota). It keeps and in real time with respect to Topic posts and lets YOU SELECT YOUR FAVORITE FORUMS. It can make things fun and easy. This is especially true for less experienced visitors raised on social media. If you, as a members want more specific topics, you can even select a single forum to view. Let us take a look at fluid view in action. We will then break it down and explain how it works in more detail.   The video shows the topic list and the forum filter box. As you can see, it is easy to change the topic list by changing the selected forums. This view replaces the traditional list of categories and forums.   Of course, members only can change the view to better suit your way of browsing.   You will notice a “grid” option. We have moved the grid forum theme setting into the main forum settings. This makes it an option for members only to choose. This screenshot also shows the removal of the forum breadcrumb in fluid view mode. Fluid view remembers your last forum selection so you don’t lose your place when you go back to the listing. The benefit of this feature is easy to see. It removes a potential barrier of entry for members only. It puts the spotlight on topics themselves, and not the hierarchical forum structure. You as a member will enjoy viewing many forums at once and switching between them without leaving the page. We hope that fluid view, the new functionality is an asset that you enjoy .

portable gas grill

Recommended Posts

We are looking for a small portable gas grill for the camper. I am wondering what brands/ models ppl like the best and why.

any suggestions?

I'd say that they're the disposable kind of grill unless you go with with something on a frame and wheels. We have a Smokey Joe and only bring it when we plan that kind of meal. A friend has a Coleman stove/grill and that works for him.

The new coleman propane grill/stoves are good and I have also upgraded the old coleman stoves with a propane adapter that works real nice and gets rid of lugging the white gas around.

If you are looking for a grill only then I would just go with one of the cheap small rectangle propane grills that can be found fairly cheep at any one of the larger stores.

My vote goes to the Weber Q or Weber baby Q. I think if we would have had our Weber Q before we had our big Weber, we wouldn't have gotten our big one. We brought our Weber Q camping and it worked great. Even used it to make bacon in the am.

We have a Coleman "Road Trip". Around $150 if I remember right. Folds down to about a foot tall, so it's nice hauling in PU, even if you pull a 5th wheel. If you tee off your camper gas line, no need for the 1 lb cans or an xtra 20 lb. Quality wise, cast iron grilling surface and round burners(2). Not alot of "lid room", so if you like making stuff over 4 inches tall, it won't work good for you.

We have a table top weber like the one in the picture above. Not just for grilling. Cover the grill grate with foil about four inches in on each end, and you can boil pots of water or cook soup or chili on it. There are flat cast iron grill plates available that fit perfect on it. Fry bacon, eggs, make pancakes. Works great.

We just got a portable Weber table top, cost about 140.00 and shaped something like a football, they had a bigger one but that seemed very heavy, really like the one we have, has a drip pan underneath, comes with a couple of aluminum pans you put in the pan and then clean that' used the small green cylinders,my only question is when your cooking and grease drips down as all cookers would do, when the grease falls on the burners does it or will it eventually clog them up?

I picked up one of the cheap table top ones at Menards a few years ago, it's performed well. We only use it a few times a year camping or when I run out of propane while grilling with the main grill at home.

When I say cheap I mean cheap, it was only $16 bucks during a fall sale. For occasional use, it's been money well spent. It's lasted longer than I thought it would, and when it finally bites it, I'll probably just pick up another cheapie.

Picked up a Weber Q 100 last week for a good deal. Have only used it once so far. Impressed so far. Thing is well built SS burners and a very even heat. This will also be my most used home grill since it is usually just the wife and I.

    •   Member of ADVRider. Rode with lots of guys on there. I just put out a feeler on here once in a while.
    • You ever check out www.thumpertalk.com Lots of guys in your area.
    • I think that summer one is in the regs, 75 feet as I recall.   
    • I am no expert either but putting my trust in the builder. Talking to him, there will only be enough lumber to screw the sheetrock to. There will be no 16" on center studwalls. He has done several like this with no problems. The "Gurts" are attached to the poles and you could saw the poles off at the bottom and move the whole building.
    • Like Leech said, it appears that a grant in aid trail is running through your area. I would urge you to contact the club president or another representative and try to work out a solution. They may be able to even re-route the trail to avoid your driveway but you will not know unless you engage in a civil discussion with a representative of the club. Just let them know you have concerns and see if an agreement can be had.    I would be surprised if the club doesn't have a landowners event every fall that you could attend and talk to club members as well to keep reminding them each year of your concerns.
    • Forgot this was a day game, missed it but happy we got the two points. We have been holding our spots and even have some games in hand on some other teams. If we can just keep this pace up we are in, but here is hoping we get hot towards the end of the year. Would be nice for a change. 
    • Nice win this afternoon on the road...things are getting interesting....need others to keep stumbling and we may not have to worry about a Wild Card.
    • That's the problem in restrictor plate races--stay on the gas and hit the car in front or lift and be hit from behind.
    • No doubt!   We didn’t have to wonder if there was actual contact though after Dillon said he had a run and just stayed in the gas.   Is what it is.  And that’s the difference I noticed.
    • So no sill plate for the walls on the perimeter then.  OK.     Again, not an expert so whatever your guys say and you’re comfortable with... I don’t know all your construction details. I - sandy County Is just that; sandy.  So it’s not too tough to get a good base.   My experience, as it relates to this, has just been based on building a 36x48 wood framed garage in Isanti County.  8 inch block on the perimeter to support 12 foot sidewalls of 2x6 construction.  My buddy that sold me the lumber said the project was only 200 feet short on interior walls from being a house.  After adding in the attic square footage it had more than my house.  Going with a pole building frame is the game changer.   Again, best of luck. It would be interesting to me to see the completed project.
