      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 .

Smoked Spatch chicken

Recommended Posts

I spatchocked this chicken and am going to smoke it.  Should be ready somewhere close to half time.  The key is the rub method that Boar has invented:

I had many colors to choose from, pink, red, bright orange, yellow, but settled on green like Boar.  Spray Krylon on meat and then apply rub immediately so its sticks to the paint.   I've found Rust O Leum to be a little too thick.  I did have some of the As Seen on TV Flex Seal but that seemed over kill.

Smoke at 250 for a few hours until paint completely melts off and coats bottom of smoker and heating element.  You will know when the smoker smokes a greenish/blue thick haze and then after a while quits emitting any toxic odor.

250 degrees 1:45-2 hours. It looks kind of burnt in photo but it isn't.  I didn't brine but it would be even better but plenty juicy as is. 

I'm all for crispness, ya it's the juicy part that would concern me. But then again prob no different than throwing a bunch of thighs on.I'll try this this week. Just gotta figure out how to split it..:D

cut the backbone out, you can use a meat cleaver, cut the skin so you can see it better.

 I'm sure your wife did it to you years ago like mine did to me...she can help you.  Whoaaaaa!!!  It's my wedding anniversary tomorrow, 19 years of my spine gone.  Dec 7 Anniversary and Sept 11 wife's birthday. Easy to remember.

That spatchcock looks good to me.  that low temp in that smoker helps to keep it juicy as well.  I've got a step by step of how to spatchcock a chicken on my page in the Smokin Hot page.  This way you can season the inside and outside fully.  good luck.

Well here goes, she's on. Went with a hybrid of LL's bird an a reinhard recipe.  She was looking real naked so thru a bacon dress on her, even though she's feeling pretty frisky and is wearing it pretty high. Thanks for the ideas fellas...

    • I live in central MN but northern MN is still home. Winter is my favorite season. It was always tradition back in the day just before Thanksgiving to deer hunt Sunday ice fish Monday. We are well before that this year up there. They have been driving sleds from Baudette to Waskish I'm hoping it only gets better
    • Lol, yea don't think so.
    • Far from traditional, but either way, believe me, not complaining one bit. I'll take more comfortable days on the ice, in the woods, and looks like another day in the the boat tomorrow over extreme cold and deep snows of yesteryear. Having a lot of hobbies help bide time between waiting for good ice, and the warm up of spring.
    • I tend to agree. Although for the first 20 years or so of butchering with the old timer in our group that had his own equipment, his meat bandsaw,which was probably from the 50's I believe had basically cast iron parts and a regular steel blade.  After use everything was washed and wiped with a food grade mineral oil. 
    • Even if it's boiled in a vacuum sealed bag?
    • That was a complete embarrassment! There’s no way they can justify starting Croft next week! He is terrible!
    • I will decide if that is true when I get my nills back out. hopefully soon. 
    • Would you be able to post pics of your bed again?  I really like that idea, very smart.  Would you make any changes on the next one.  Should get my firebrand shell this week, lots to do.
    • Beaver Bay sports rents although I've never used them. 
    • There's really no wrong way of doing a roast if ya ask me, it's all personal preference. Crockpot,  roaster, oven or boiled (del) . Although I do enjoy throwing cold smoke this time of year at a roast before it hits the roaster!!
