      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.

    • I bought a new house last summer and it has a good sized stamped concrete patio off of the deck in the backyard.  It looks great and we use it a lot but the problem is that is very slippery when wet.  This winter it was like an ice rink when it had a little snow on it and in the summer its really slick when it rains or if the kids run on it with bare feet after playing in the sprinkler or pool.    I'm looking for solutions to reduce how slippery it is.  I've seen additives that I can add to the clear sealer that the old homeowner left for me (the cheap solution).  I've also see a product called Deck o Grip (the more expensive option) that looks to be a clear sealer that acts like a thin flexible rubber surface to prevent slips.  My concern with additives is that I don't want it to feel too rough on bare feet.  Most of the additives indicate you won't notice much but I'm wonder if that is true and if you don't notice anything does it really reduce slips that much?    Does anyone have experience with sealers for stamped concrete that aren't so dang slippery?
    • Every bird is around now except for a turkey. I heard them as the sun came up but I know they went to that field again. I am going to stick it out and see if I can get one to come over in a while.
    • Yep, a lot of things have to go right, right in a row, to get one with the bow.  Good luck!
    • Sat on a different property yesterday morning. With the recent snow melt I can finally drive close to it. I sat until 11:00. Had gobbling near me most of the morning. Finally about 9:00  4 jakes and a hen came out to the field followed by 2 large Toms and another hen. The jakes came cruising in to me dekes. Got as close as 7 yards but the big Toms kept there distance. I don't think they liked my strutter decoy. It is one that spins and the tail raises/lowers. Might be a bit to aggressive for this early season. They eventually walked off with the hen following them., never getting closer then 75 yards. Depending on this rain I might get out this evening/otherwise will have to wait until Friday/Saturday morning with my son...
    • I hear you! Tough luck!
    • Well the big tom slipped away from me Man He was big be was coming i ti my decoys but the hens went the otherway and he turned and followed  i drew back and almost gave it a shot but it was a wierd angle on one knee and i decided to not    i will get him friday when i go out next
    • The strange part is the better teams/points we had in the standings the worse we looked in the playoffs. It is probably a good thing to get some new eyes on the team and see what happens. I think someone else will scoop up Fletcher fairly soon, like players and coaches sometimes a change of scenery is in order. 
    • red polls and purple finches here daily for a while now. not many house finches.  brown headed cowbirds are here. flickers. Saw a vireo yesturday. 
    • Here are some pictures from my hunt.
