      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 .

Tried some new rubs.....

Recommended Posts

I make my own rubs, but I needed something different. Think I've tried most of them out there, some are good, others mostly salt and garlic it seems. BUT.....I bought two a few weeks ago that I have to give the "thumbs up" to...Weber Smokey Mesquite and Weber Carne Asada. The mesquite went on my CSR's last week, danged good stuff! Even better mixed with Reb's Rib Rub. Put the Carne Asada on some thick pig chops....this stuff is great. I'm hooked. Can taste the lime and other spices. I recommend them, guys! For what that's worth! :)

I need to try something else and one of these just might do the trick, Most time on ribs I just use my Head Country rub. Tried some cajun on chops last night but did not feel much of the flavor came out.

I've got a couple Cajun rubs, don't care for them. The Carne Asada was really good...like the lime in it. It would be great on pig chops like I had paired with some mexican beans and rice. :P

Ya know, I do not really like that McCormick's Cajun powder real well, have a big bottle of it. I do love my blade steaks, however. I have my buddy Rob cut them 1 1/4" thick for me, then I smoke with plenty of BBQ sauce on them. Prefer those over all ribs and chops any day. Soft & juicy...ummmm. I've been eating those like that for 20 years. Always was my favorite. I like the bit of marbling (aka fat) that's in and on them. Gives 'em flavor. ;)

 

Carne Asada is beef steak, so you are going for fusion or something by putting it on pork..

 

Del, now tell me something I don't know......Cooking school will teach ya the best cooks are the ones that experiment outside the box. That's why I'm so good. lol  Yer just all fused over that soused up verde thing ya got anyway.  :P

Call me old school and call me later for the discussion, but I'm huge on cooking over wood. I might go thru many bags of charcoal through out the year but it really doesn't matter in my opinion what one might use for seasoning. Cooking over hard wood is about as good as it gets. I have to admit I've gone through several big containers of mesquite seasoning  from Costco on fried taters or whatever but I'll take a non seasoned chunk of cow, pig or chicken on the pit over an high heat searing gas  grill any day..seasoning, what seasoning.

I realize the thread took a turn from the original post but I do have a rub that you can give a try.  It's easy and works on meat, pork and chicken.  Give it a whirl next time you feel adventurous.

  • 4 Parts kosher salt (Diamond Crystal) *See Note
  • 3 Parts brown sugar
  • 1 Part sweet paprika
  • 1 Part smoked paprika
  • 1 Part cayenne pepper

For chicken I reduce the salt by 1 part.

*Note: Not all kosher salts are the same. Diamond Crystal is half as salty by weight as Morton's.  So if this rub seems too salty and you’re using Morton’s either reduce the amount or try Diamond Crystal.

    • Where did you get your subfloor? How is it holding up? 
    •     thats what I have heard also..  I have put a tip up out on the lake and stay in my home, less than 200 feet, no issue...  could see it always...
    • The dump and run brings home the HJE trophy for the 60th anniversary of the race and on the 20th anniversary of the #3’s win of the race.   Any thoughts?   I’m only a part time fan these days but it seems like the move is totally acceptable these days.  Or is it just if you’re part of racing royalty?  20 years ago there woulda been a fight.   I will say I enjoyed the race and glad it was good since I’ve had to sit on my butt all day not feeling good.  Oh, and the Monster Energy marketing gals don’t suck. 
    • I would also look into using SIPS panels as an alternative to post framed. I have done a lot of projects using SIPS panels from a company called EPS in Iowa including the new fire station/ city hall in our town.    The cost of the panels is higher than the material cost of post framed but they are super insulated, go up fast and really cut down on outside noise. Our city has saved a significant amount of money in heat savings and you can even put in smaller btu HVAC which saves money. 
    • I always thought it was a visual issue. Not sure of the footage away but going house to house without seeing your lines might be a problem. I've wondered in the summer, casting a sucker off the dock and walking up to the cabin to get something if that was in wrong as well. 
    • I’ve heard people have been getting cited for not bringing up their lines to go their buddies houses less than 200 feet away.    What I haven’t heard is the reason why this legally different than having a tip up outside your house.  I won’t argue that it is different, just haven’t heard why, and what notification systems make it or break it.   Its another situation where the use of technology is moving faster than the laws.  I agree with Pro V: contact the DNR before you have to try to explain it on the ice.  Or maybe you’ve had to do that already.
    • Got another good ride in yesterday ,,, Almost took the same route as the last time I did the Tac but took a wrong turn and put on a few extra miles but still and enjoyable ride ,,, Had lunch at Side Lake and then headed out to the Bearskin trail ,,, Nice trail flat, straight and fast ,, A little too fast for a sled not completely broke in yet any way ,,, I think every one enjoyed the ride and trail conditions ,,, As I type the snow is falling and Im sure trail conditions are improving 
    • Good question to ask the warden.
    • I can't think of one reason to ever have a gas auger again... I get around 20 holes per battery this time of year with a lazer 7 inch
    • WAIT FOR IT Here is James Vladyka's story: This is one of my best friends. We grew up together and have made some crazy memories over the years. He joined the Army shortly after we got out of high school and there was many years where we had to make the best out of a few days of leave that he would get to hunt and fish.   To many years have passed 2 tours Iraq, 3 tours Afghanistan and a few years private contracting he has served our country proudly. Now he's retired and we are making more memories again.   This was another battle to add to his long list.  Brock landed this beautiful Pike through a 6 in kdrill hole on a 20" Jason Mitchell meat stick with a Clam Dropkick tipped with a white Super Jamei on 2 lbs CPT line.   The 14 inch white Crappie in it's mouth was placed there for a size reference. The assist goes to another one of my good friends not pictured Blaine Goad. He reach down the hole and help her come topside
