      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 .

These turned out tasty, fall apart with a nice crust. I put my rub on these and slow cooked to 160 degree internal heat before the foil. Then added brown sugar, a pad of butter and apple cider vinegar for moisture and cooked till fall apart. Then firmed up on the grill before serving.

Yup, it does, Mike. Works on pork and beef. I use apple cider vinegar mixed with concentrated apple juice for an overnite marinade.  


From the USDA:


Can you tenderize steak with vinegar?



A steak can be tenderized using vinegar, according to the United States Department of Agriculture. The vinegar is used to enhance the flavor of the steak, and it is usually added in a marinade that is applied to the steak before cooking.



The acid in the vinegar helps to break down the meat's tissue and allows the steak to absorb more fluid. A vinegar marinade can be prepared using a mixture of vinegar, oil, spices or herbs. The vinegar also aids in the absorption of spices into the steak. A pound of steak requires half a cup of marinade and should always be marinated covered with a lid in the refrigerator.

Buy a cheap tablet.  It can be used for lake maps as well.  There was one on amazon for 34 bucks some guys on here were using for that.   Sorry, can't find the discussion. 

I looked on Amazon and it appears you can get a usable tablet for under 50 bucks. 

Wally world also has inexpensive tablets, I believe.

Just something else for me to fiddle with, Del.  Plus, extra cash for things like that isn't on hand.  I try to limit my "electronic time"...that includes TV. Gives me more time to fiddle with food. I'm too old school. I do just fine with my Motorola dinosaur flip phone. Last month's air time used was 6 mns. :grin:

Speaking of ribs, Silver Lake food has racks of them for $1.99 lb.....
