      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 .

Good night to grill - venison backstrap

Recommended Posts

It was a prefect night to fire up the grill last night so I pulled out a pack of venison backstrap and prepared them one of my favorite ways.

I started out by cutting them into medallions about 2 inches thick, maybe a little less.  Then they got wrapped in Nueske's apple wood smoked bacon.  Then they spent the afternoon marinading in a mix of bbq sauce (sweet baby rays) and apple cider.  I just eyeball the ratios, I leave the marinade so the bbq sauce is thinned down but still thick enough you can paint it on the medallions without it all running off.  I let it sit in the fridge for the bulk of the day while I was out doing yard work and then it gets grilled up.  I shoot for about medium at most on these although with the marinade and the bacon helping keep things tender and moist you've got a little wiggle room.  I did one or two more well done for one person and they were still very tender and moist even though there was no pink at all.  I didn't take an after photo as I was in to big of a rush to start eating but here are a couple prep shots.

Nice!  I have a backstrap portion about 10" long in a Lowry's Smokehouse marinade right now.  I will also wrap in bacon and throw on the grill tonight.

I'll try to get photos, but they always seem to get drool on them when grilling venison :)

I use this marinade for all my venison then to the grill for about 4 minutes per side 150 degrees is a little to high for me I shoot for 140 and it ends up at about 145 after resting.

Ingredients
1/4 cup Worcestershire sauce
2 tablespoons soy sauce
1/2 lime, juiced
1 tablespoon dried minced onion
1 teaspoon red pepper flakes
1 teaspoon dry mustard
1/2 teaspoon Kosher salt
1/4 teaspoon thyme
1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper
1/4 teaspoon dried, minced garlic
3 dashes hot pepper sauce (such as Tabasco(R)), or to
taste
2 (4 ounce) venison steaks
Directions
Whisk Worcestershire sauce, soy sauce, lime juice, onion, red pepper flakes, dry mustard, salt, thyme,
black pepper, garlic, and hot pepper sauce together in a bowl; pour into a resealable plastic bag. Add
venison steaks, coat with the marinade, squeeze to remove excess air, and seal the bag. Marinate in the
refrigerator at least 1 hour.
Preheat an outdoor grill for medium-high heat and lightly oil the grate.
Remove venison from the marinade and shake o㉰ excess. Discard remaining marinade.
Cook the steaks until they are firm, hot in the center, and just turning from pink to grey, about 5 minutes
per side. An instant-read thermometer inserted into the center should read 150 degrees F (65 degrees C)

    • Btw......for you bass purists .... a couple days before the above success, I located mostly largemouth with one smallmouth on the edge of bulrushes adjacent to a deep drop off.  Probably a dozen fish in 20 casts with a Senko. Nothing of any real size. Always fun getting fish on four or five consecutive casts.
    • Great find! I did a little research and did not find an I.D.  Hopefully someone will know what it is.
    • You are 100% correct... a guy has to be smart about it. There is nothing magic about inverters... its takes a lot of DC juice to make a little AC juice. On the flipside though, I have a 120vac 32" TV/DVD player that only draws 51 watts AC.... meaning that it should (hypothetically) only draw 4.25 amps DC. Even with a 15% draw added for the inefficiency of the inverter, I am still under 5 amp. Usually I will run the generator for a few hours between 10 am and 2 pm. Then it is off until 7 pm or so... Then I will fill it up and let it run through out the night. It will run about 9 hrs on eco, so by 4 am or so it is out of gas... but the batteries are topped off nice to run the routine again. The 4 hr run isn't necessary, but does offer some security. With a 5 and a 7 yr old fishing with me the majority of the time, the TV usually doesn't turn off during the day.
    • I believe the crawlers are not natural forage and using them as bait emulates large larvae.  
    • Like I stated earlier and others with more knowledge than anyone on here have as well..we should have waited...I also was unaware of the no trade clause which he was able to get without any less $$...pure stupidity...we'll know in 8/9 months how this pans out...it boot straps us from further improving the team with younger talent is my main issue. As far as a captain, lifelong wild...blah blah blah....if he is such a pillar, such a great player, such a leader of the team...where has he taken us? The playoff record speaks for itself....time to dump guys like Koivu at the soonest opportunity who have done all they can or at least decrease their pay in later years not increase them...they took us as far as they could...and we've already got vets like Parise, Suter, Spurgeon, Granlund, Coyle, Brodin locked in on long term deals; give one of them the C to carry us forward.  
    • Where ya going? Numbers are pretty bad this year... I would suggest looking at Edmunds or Faulk county if you haven't already locked in somewhere.
    • This is my first time hunting bear. Have two coming to the bait, both after dark, and the small one shows up at odd times in the early A.M. I was thinking a honey burn might tempt one or the other to come in during shooting time. The big guy comes in after the little one at night, but he hangs around for an hour. The smaller one comes back multiple time during the night. I have tried to come in before shooting time, but I have bumped him twice now.  
    • DC to AC converters work well on low AC current but takes a bit of DC battery current. Example a drip coffee maker uses 900 AC watts (7.5 amp) which draws 83 amps DC battery current. 15 AC amps draws 165 DC battery amps. (Based on 110 VAC & 12 VDC). Batteries die quickly converting to AC. https://www.batterystuff.com/kb/tools/ac-to-dc-amperage-conversion-run-through-an-inverter.html
