      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 .

So i normally grind my venny, add seasonings, put in fridge overnite then the next day stuff into casings then smoke. Can i grind, add seasonings, stuff my casings and then put in fridge overnite and then smoke the next day. I am finding its 2 days of cleaning vs just one if you stuff the same day. Any thoughts, my worries would be in casings, the meat might not cure as well.

Im no expert but I don't see why you couldn't. I would bet sausage makers have tubs of sausage sitting in their coolers waiting to go in the smoker when they get busy.

Heck I don't see any issue, for us we aren't even planning to smoke them (brats and Italians) so don't see any harm in that. Are you then cold smoking to get the smoke on them?

Blue that is what I do. I take them out a few hours to warm up to almost room temp before throwing them into the smoker. Make the mess once and clean up once.

I wouldn't attempt it any other way... Not just for cleaning up once versus twice, that's a nice perk, too, but you will find that stuffing right away is MUCH easier than doing it on day two when the cure has had a chance to make your meat real tacky and hard to work with. As long as you mix it well the first time, your cure is in there doing its job. So, the short answer, after that long babbling answer, is "yes." smile

Another thing I'd offer is that if you are doing a double grind (in essence, grinding chunks of vension and/or pork, then grinding again for a better consistency or a for a finer texture), be sure to add your seasoning/cure in-between the two grinds. You can mix it all in after if you want, but mixing it between grinds one and two will more thoroughly blend your seasonings and your cure. Keeping everything as COLD AS POSSIBLE before grinding is also very helpful. If I am putzing around for even a few minutes doing something inbetween stuffing or grinding, I set my tub of meat outside to stay chilled.
