      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 .

Deep fryer Fish Grease

Recommended Posts

Just curious...how long do you keep your grease? I had a fish fry this summer, filtered the grease and put it in the fridge. How long can I keep this with limited fish fry's? Planning on a winter, spring, and fall fry. Should be good for a year?

Stuff is too darn expensive if I need to toss it every few months.

THANKS!

Try drinking a cup of it... if you get sick, it's no good. sick

Kidding!

I would throw it after two uses if they are every few months. (a year seems like a long time to keep it around). Make sure you strain, and refrigerate in an air-tight container.

I've heard frying a chopped up potato will help "clean up" the oil and keep the flavor regular.

if it looks dark or smell I would toss it. Also if it looks like lard and no longer looks like oil then I would toss it.

Yep-starting to look like lard. What a bummer.

What do you fishermen do, how are maybe like me, and keep very few fish only to have a small get-together fish fry every so often? Do you just fork out the money and buy grease every time? Seems very spendy and I could only find 3 gallon jugs. 2 of which are sitting in the garage that are probably waste as well.

It might look like lard because it's cold. Sorry but I think I would get advice from someone who knows something about cooking rather than from a bunch of guys that stare at holes in the ice for hours at a time.

ive reused oil 2-3 times for fish. key is dont let it get too hot when frying. if it turns brown or smokes i dont reuse it. when its cooled i strain it back into the container and mark the date on it. ive stored it in my garage for a year and reused it. use the smell test,. it will get rancid and if it doesnt smell good then dont use it. i have never refrigerated it and not have any issues. good luck

thaw it out it might be ok. its heated to 350 375 which is plenty high to kill any bacteria...what bad oil will do is give the your product an awful taste. i always avoid pouring the bottom of the jug oil into the fry pan.

Get a frying saucer it only takes about a qt. of frying oil.

Not a bad idea and thanks. Though I tend to go overboard and fry up tator tots, onion rings, homemade potato chips, cheese sticks, poppers, fries...mmmmm fish fry!

I'll try the sniff test and if no one dies next weekend I know then it'll last 6 months. I'll try it again next spring then again next summer and if we all survive, I'll toss it after a year and call it good! Trial and error...at the expense of other...

As was said before( and I do have some experience in the subject) when it gets dark brown and smokes then it is time for it to go. The biggest enemies are water and not straining all of the batter, coatings etc that are left after you are done. Both decrease the life of the oil faster if you don't get rid of them or prevent them from getting in there in the first place. If you have something with a lot of loose breading or lots of frost from the freezer get as much of it as you can out of the food before you put it in there.

The Fryin Saucer is the best! Bought ours last year, told my wife it was a pig in the poke, man was I wrong! I have many friends that want to get one after seeing ours, are they available anymore?

    • Doesn't get any better than that. Pic says it all. Congrats  
    • Well not the most attractive option but when the kids are out playing in the sprinkler you could get a roll of nonslip pool matting to roll out then put in the garage during the fall-winter? 
    •   OK, then how about stripping the sealer if that is what makes it slippery.   After a few years it really isn't necessary, since the concrete is mostly cured by then (yeah it keeps curing for decades but most of it is done in a year or two).     I guess if you like the glossy look then maybe the sand in the sealer thing is worth a try.
    • Season ended just like I thought it would and happy Leipold held true to his word and moved on from Fletcher...he did some good things but overall did a poor job building a team that can compete at a high level unfortunately.  It will be interesting to see how the new GM handles this situation...getting rid of under-performers will not be easy and what in return? Going to be one of those down before heading back up deals. Coyle will be the first to go IMO, Granny can go as far as I'm concerned...gotta sign Zucker even though he was terrible in the playoffs, Nino is a question mark, Staal might need to go with the up year he had but long in the tooth and now would be the only time to get anything for him, Ennis (terrible player) will be bought out, Foligno (terrible) probably not tradeable with his contract...enjoy the ride Wild fans!
    • We packed four of us in the blind and had a blast!  Just about ready to give up and gave "one last call" only to have the birds blow up not 30 yards away from us.  One of the gobblers rubbed against the blind for two feet as he walked into the deeks- pretty dang cool!  Ryan made a perfect shot and dropped the bird in his tracks.  
    • Ryan.pdf The pdf shows up as a link for me.  Is that ok Borch?  
    • Twins are 33-91 against the Yankees since 2002! Its unbelievable how awful they play against them.    Stanton absolutely murdered that hanging curveball for a HR last night.
    • I was looking for reviews last night but only found a handful and they didn't really give me that much info. They seemed to be overall positive reviews but all were written after recently applying it so no info on longevity. 
    • Stamped concrete looks great, but not very functional and it requires maintenance too, like every couple of years or so.   ....and how do you get the non-peeled, non-flaked area cleaned?
