      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 .

If you get out to siren WI, look for a jar of big butz bbq sauce. Their cranberry sauce is awesome,  and they have some similar flavors with crazy heat,  too.

I like to try pretty much anything new I see in the store that doesn't look like lame sauce.  I always look for something that isn't half corn syrup, but I'll go with sweet baby rays or whatever if I have to.  I just can't do KC masterpiece anymore, but I'll take it over Heinz.   

My current go to is some stuff called "Stubbs".  I'm making my way through the flavors.   

I got this "hot vinegar" sauce in a sampler pack at Oklahoma Joe's in KC last year.  I had the ribs on the grill, ready for sauce, when I hear the wife's reaction to tasting it.  It was weird, to say the least.  Wife ended up concocting a makeshift sauce by just jamming a brown sugar into ketchup and just about every thing else she had in the kitchen and it tasted like brown sugar in ketchup with just about everything else in the kitchen.  Still, I think it beat that sauce.  I sort of want to try it, but I haven't done it.

Head Country is my fav. I buy it by the gallon and buy their rub by the gallon. The sauce is cheap but the shipping is bad but to me well worth it. Love there hot sauce on wings.

I have a couple of sauces you can make yourself on my page.   Here is one that is very simple and can be made quickly.  Just take one cup of ketchup and one cup of Western salad dressing and mix them up.  Warm it up on the stove and add a little apple juice to it so it can be used as a mop sauce.  Can use it on pork or chicken.  I do not buy any sauces but some of the one'w mentioned do sound good.  good luck.

John Hardy's here in Rochester has sauce that is good.  Back in the day, he started with Open Pit and doctored it up some.   Now they have woosified it.  Used to be I could hardly eat the medium, and hot was out of the question.  Now they have like 6 levels and medium is the new mild, and mild my wife will eat.

I make some sauces but I also found a sauce that I really like. It is southern spicy sweet from the Shed barbecue and blues joint, I think they are in Mississippi?. Some Cub stores carry it, you can find out those that do on the Shed page. No high fructose corn syrup, if you look at the ingredient list it is all good stuff, it does not read like a chemistry exam as a lot do. They have other varieties but I really like this one. Google the shed and see what you think.

You think that's good?! Tasteless to me. Some heat and that's it. Watery katchup, as Smurf would say. He'd probably like it. 'course, no real bbq places in CAWchester anyway.  They wouldn't know one here if it bit them in the butt. I used to be a Bullseye hickory smoke sauce guy, but it's hard to find now. I like KC and Texas style sauces. Do not care for Carolina style sauces. It's whatever works for ya, I guess.  ;)

    • Feel free to explain how you keep food out of the danger zone while using sous vide when you are cooking at temperatures in the danger zone for many hours.   
    • I have a feeling PIYA is an acronym. Maybe it stands for Pain In Your A@@.
    • Yes and it sucks. Putting a pro view in Lp mode in shallow water means you are going to have a narrower cone. (Because LP mode is low power which is a 50% cut in power which less power equals narrower cone on a pro view)  To get a wide cone angle and sharp returns in shallow water is impossible with a pro view. To get a narrow cone in deep water if you need the gain up it is impoosible with a pro view. basicly the pro view cant do what a person wants. Which is a wide beam low gain/lp mode in shallow water and a narrow cone higher gain in deep water.
