      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 .

Boar if the largest stuffing tube you have is the one for brats, go ahead and use it, it will do just fine.  If you are using fibrous casings made for summer sausage they will be uniform.  They are designed to only expand so much.  Fibrous casings should be soaked in luke warm water for around 20 minutes or so before stuffing also.  good luck.

I haven't used collogen casings for summer sausage.  They are more fragile and you would have a blow out if stuffed to full.  Collogen casings have to be  used as they are and not soaked in water.  I'm thinking you have fibrous casings that are tied at one end and and you tie the other after stuffing?  good luck.IMG_2721.jpg

Do they look like this?  Notice the pre-tie on one end and I tie the other end.

Here is another pic where you can see both ends tied.  These fibrous casing come with one end pre-tied.

I"m sure if you get the kit that it will come with the fibrous casings.  good luck.

I second that. And I can add that the mix from Curly's is out of this world good!

Stuffing summer is perhaps the easiest sausage making there is due to the tough, fibrous casings that fill uniformly and don't blow out. If you've never done it before and have only worked with collagen or natural casings, your in for a treat in terms of ease of use. Good luck!

    • Did a few off season projects waiting for Ice. - Underwater camera, Fish Finder, Wheel house mods and the latest converting a 2 cycle Jiffy Lite 90 to an ION battery auger. Got the auger off Craiglist for $10, Drill for $15. Second stage of gear box is a 5 to 1 reduction so got the auger blade to turn at about 250 RPM which I feel is an ideal speed. Gear reduction also doubled the torque of the motor drive. Planning to use the Dewalt 20V ION battery as I already have charger and now converting one of the 1.5 AH batteries to either 9 or 12 AH.  If anyone needs a mid 80's Jiffy Lite 90 motor and clutch PM me. Has great compression, never tried to start it.  Price somewhere between free and a gift. If you did a project this summer, would you care to share them?

    • You don't get a smoke ring like that with liquid smoke either 
    • Yup, the bike sold and they guy seems pretty happy with the purchase. The only reason it was parked we think because it had a bent back rim. He had torn it all apart and put it back together and currently has it running. 
    • Camper is winterized for the season. 
    • As far as an app to keep him from getting lost, you could try the Polaris Ride Command app. It is a really good trail map and I believe you can download the maps for the areas you ride in so it will still work even if you don't have cell signal. https://ridecommand.polaris.com/en-us/landing-pages/AppLandingPage
    • I don't know much about it but maybe satellite tracking might be an option?  http://www.cabelas.com/product/SPOT-LLC-SPOT-GEN-ORANGE/1661065.uts?productVariantId=3609002&WT.tsrc=PPC&WT.mc_id=GoogleProductAds&WT.z_mc_id1=03750221&rid=20&lsft=ref:212,loc:1&gclid=CjwKCAjw4KvPBRBeEiwAIqCB-U1B1VDAZZB5771da4q6PQrP_nm5K5-fi29AOxs0i6bnAO3O3wWVWxoC6R4QAvD_BwE I would think you would be out of range quickly on an ATV in the Chippewa National Forest. 
    • Looks a whole lot better than a boiled brisket....
    • that looks great and I'll bet it tasted better!!!!!!  excellent looking meal!!!
    • I have a Bear Truth 2 for sale. I am the original owner. I have hunted with it for 2 full seasons. 50-60lb limbs. 28 inch draw length. Comes with 3 pin trophy ridge sight and fall away trophy ridge rest. This thing is ready to hunt. Very accurate and has a lot of life left in the strings.  $300
    • Looks like a squid attacked the brisket.
