      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

Really depends on your size needed and how much use it will get. I have two. I know, why two, but they both have thier place. And I have many guests with most times. I have a large 3 burner Weber with the flavor bars for my large cooking and then I have my portable. I have a Thermos Grill 2 Go. It folds up, runs off of both large tank and 1lbers and is a griddle type with ribbed grill on 2/3rds. Great for breakfasts and then I grill over open fire for big meals, cooks a mean burger and butter fry's fish fillets great. I can fold it up put it in the carrying case and bring with me ice fishing as well, it works great on the pontoon and really is a gem. As I said though, it really depends on how much you plan to use the grill and for how much food. That is why I have two.

Check out the Companion made by Holland. I've had mine for about ten years and love it. The newer ones have some nice improvments over the older units.

Weber Q is an awesome grill. A little on the spendy side, but mine does double duty with a stand as our main grill.

The cast iron grill and sturdy construction is what has kept me happy.

the thing to watch with the coleman grills is do not let them heat up or warm up cause the grill plates will burn.....found this out when we started the grill while ice fishing went back in the house and watched 5 minutes of TV came back out and found the grates melted!!! I called coleman and they said read the instructions and that it clearly states do not let preheat. Good customer service though as they sent me new grates for free!! and oh yeah the coleman grill on wheels is great!!

Another vote for the Weber Q. This grill has a full-

sized,coated, grill top, yet is quite compact in

design.There is also room under the hood for can goods

to be warmed up (Beans and corn) Stability is top-notch

too. Runs off one pound or bulk LP.

    • Lotsa rib comps do that for overnites low 'n slow, if they're doing briquettes. Always worked for me.
    • What does use the minion method mean?
    • Folks  use the minion method in smokers with no issues.
    • I agree. Don't use kingsford unless you put it in after it has turned all white. There are chemicals on it to make it light easier. 
    • I saved about $200 by picking up a used one.  It was a clean unit, just a couple minor scratches on the side.  It's been flawless. I knew what I was looking for and when I found it I was there within hours.  That is the game when you're looking to save money on those generators. I've never seen a retail sale on them worth going out of the way for.  
    • Just make sure you get it going good first without fluid or make sure the fluid is burned off.   I tried charcoal in my electric smoker once and didn't get the fluid burned off enough before I put the snack sticks in and the taste of the lighter fluid soaked into the casing pretty good and rendered it inedible. 
    • Nah, not but hurt at all.  
    • Welcome to the forum.  Could you give us a little more details on what you would be jigging for in the Philippines? 
    • RRmawi, Welcome to the forums.  I don't have one and by no replies it looks like not many others do as well? Sounds like you mite have some corrosion or wear happening in the connections and controllers.  Did you try replacing the batteries in the remote already? You could try some dielectric grease on all the connections to see if it's a contact issue. Or some Electicric contact spray on the switch's.  If you got some water in the motor from a leaking seal that could also affect the current flow through the system as well. Good luck and let us know what you find out.
    • I've been using gas grills at home and at the camper for some time now.  I do really miss the Smokey flavor of charcoal but the speed of gas to get a dinner done and back out on the lake is nice. I do wrap some hickory up in tin foil to smoke on the gas grills when doing ribs or other longer cook meat though. Lately I have been wondering how wrapping up some kingsford charcoal in tin foil or trying some in the smoker to get that great charcoal flavor would work? Anyone else ever try it for smoking on a gas grill wrapped in tin foil or in a smoking tube or in a smoker instead of wood?
