      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 .

    You know what we all love...

    When you enchant people, you fill them with delight and yourself in return. Have Fun!!!


Pork Loin Jerky

Recommended Posts

After seeing Eyeguy's pork jerky I had to give it a go and put this together Friday afternoon. I got a whole loin at Sams and sliced it 1/2" thick and put it in the marinade for a 2 day soak. 

Per 3 pounds

1 C Soy Sauce

1 TBS Worcestershire

1 TBS Onion Powder

1TBS Garlic Powder

1 TBS Fresh Ground Peppercorn

3 TBS Honey

I start drying the meat at 160 and smoke at 180. More Pics tomorrow.

Thanks guys! I use a Masterbuilt electric smoker. I start out at 160 degrees to dry the outside of the meat then bump up to 180 degrees and add the AMNPS with apple pellets. I have both bottom and top vents wide open to keep the pellets burning and let the moisture escape. There are hotspots so I move the pieces around occasionally as needed and pull pieces out as they finish. The honey caramelizes and gives the pieces nice color around the edges and flavor. In the past I used to use brown sugar.

When using the AMAZE tray, where do you put it?  Ive been putting it along side the heating unit on the bottom, fits about perfect, but have a hard time keeping a good smoke going.  Might need to pull tube out further.

It's also important that the pellets are pretty dry to burn well. I like to use the pellet tray and I place mine in the smoker unlit at 160 for about the first hour while the meat surface is drying, this is to dry out the pellets. Putting them in a glass bowl in the nuker for about a minute will do the same.

Like RH1 said, plenty of air is important. I've been pulling my loading tube all the way out. I set my ANMPS on a canned chicken can under the empty water tray.
