      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

havnt made chops for probably 15 years.  blade steaks. :)    gotta have lemon pepper and cajon powder from mc cormicks on them.   not crazy salty. 

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.

    • The nice thing about pluging it in is you have heat blowing right away 
    • I'm not saying I'd plug it in on November 1st and leave it for the year. I'm mainly talking when we start getting into the lows around zero or below. The main reason I asked this was because my father in law stated that it wasn't a good idea to be leaving it plugged in and that the block heaters weren't designed to be left plugged in for more than overnight. It was much nicer last year with the quicker warm ups to load the kids up and take off.    As as far as the global climate change, would it be better to have it plugged in and let it warm up for a couple minutes or hit the auto start and let it idle for 20 minutes?  If I ever get caught up on the honey do's and get my stall in the garage cleaned out I can just park inside. May have to push the junk to the wife's side. That may move the cleaning up on the list. 
    • And there isn't free maribou in my back yard... gotta get the vise out and wax up the thread.....
    • It contributes to global climate change due to electricity from coal usage.  Other than that I can't think of anything that keeping the engine warm would harm.   On the other hand, it is sort of wasteful.   Put it on a timer or go plug it in when you will be using it.   That's my take on it.
    • I think I answered my own question. Looks like I need a cable box from Mediacom to operate this particular TV. 
    • Just found online while doing more researching that this TV does not have a QAM tuner. Does anyone know if this could be the issue?
    • We the People 1911   I am thinking this will be my next gun.
    • I have a question for all of you AV wizards out there. In my house I have 4 or 5  flat screen TV's connected directly to Mediacon cable. No cable box. The only problem to this is my channels are digital channels so Fox 9 is actually on 9.9 and ESPN is on 66.5, etc.  I just recently acquired an older flat screen tv for my garage from a friend who didn't want it anymore. It is about 10 years old.  When I hook it up to cable and try to run the auto programming feature it doesn't find anything.  Could that TV just be too old to do what I am asking? I can get a cable box from Mediacom but I'm trying to avoid that. Any ideas?
