      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 .

OK so following the meat sales thread I see sales for yard bird more often then not for cut up chickens! personally I am a whole chicken fan. I love chicken cooked pretty much any which way as well as no preference to white or dark meat.

I like the idea of grilling whole chickens but Mrs. Cheviot is not a chicken fan. The old, "had too much chicken growing up" song and dance. :( Luckily she's not always around so I can get the rotisserie out and go from there. Leftover city! ;)

Favorite is chicken scallopini. The only part of the chicken I wont eat is the drum sticks, I would probably eat a tomatoe ( and I don't eat tomatoes ) before a drumstick. The other favorite part of the chicken is the liver, heart and gizzards.

Smurfy you can drink the beer and pour in some beef broth with garlic or use a can of Dr. Pepper also instead.  The part of the chicken you see least on add are the wings.  Parts like drumsticks and thighs are on sale the most I think.  I also like a whole fryer but I've been spatchcocking them lately.  I think you see more whole chickens in the fall through spring time span and more parts during the summer.  good luck.

Throwing smoke at a whole bird sitting on a beer can is my fav.  You should try it smurf with the tube you earned. Next is thighs. In other words our chicken has to be bone in for grilling.  Good point cooper, while the ladies eat up the breast meat, the boy and I take care of the rest, including the back.

Nothing like a well-seasoned bird with a beer can up its butt.

I have got to do this some weekend soon, with some of the ideas given below. Since I don't care for beer much, would a rum and coke work ok while grilling? :P

Your pushing it with the livers but I eat the hearts and gizzards to but they don't help the cholesterol level. We have a good in plump right hear in town. My parents would but hearts and gizzards by the case. Brown them and kinda make a stroganoff with them except it be on taters!

    • Bag 'em up and souse 'em!!!  
    • Great! To all the Coyotes and Wolves up in our hunting area.  I hope they all waste away!
    • The only problem we have had with the kdrill is today we had ice build up between the center point cutter and the first tooth on the chipper blades. Once I cleaned that out it drilled like day one. Don’t need any other auger. 
    • How much ice do you need to feel comfortable putting your perm shack out there? I have a 4x6 made from 2x4s and thick plywood. Its on the heavier side. Im thinking 7-8 inches.
