      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 .

Sounds like they may be a newer deal. I was talking with a guy at work who has one and said he rally likes it and doesn't like the oil deep fryers because of the chance of fires.  I like fires-just don't like the price of cooking oil now! I saw Home Depot has them for $95 so I may have to give one a try.

Seems to have good reviews, Amazon has it for $94.00 plus free shipping if you're a prime member.

I'm thinking any meat that you can cook or want to smoke. Turkey, chicken, ham, venny, beef roast.  That's kind of were I'm headed with it.

I own one similar to this, it's called the Big Easy. It's a propane powered  Infrared cooker.  Mine is about 6 years old and does not have the smoker option.  As far as Infrared heat cooking, I love it.  Works great for Turkey and Chicken.  Skin stays nice and crisp and the chickens come out looking like the Rotisserie chickens you see at some grocery stores. 

Here's a pic of the one I have.

How long do you think it takes to do a bird in it, and what was the price range if you remember?

I paid around $100.00 for it, can't remember exactly but that's close.  I estimate the cooking time at 10 min a pound an start poking it with a thermometer after about 9 min a pound.  So for a ten pound bird I would start testing it at 90 mins.

Also, I have not deep fried a bird since getting this, it's much easier, not as messy and a lot less expensive.

Not a fryer if it doesn't have oil in it. Looks like a round convection oven. Any convection oven should give the same results. The smoker option looks interesting though. Not sure if it is in long enough to get a smoky taste though.

Right, but some times an oven may not be at a place like the Deer shack! ;)

I don't have that model but I did replace our regular oil fryer that was used for fries, wings etc with one of the electric air fryers and I use it all the time for wings. I basically just baste a little oil on the wings or use a spray can of olive oil and it takes about 16 minutes to cook a plate of wings from frozen. I think that would work well for birds and be safer.

I don't know what brand he has but a guy that I used to work with had an oil-less turkey cooker and he loves it. I've been thinking of getting one but my wife likes deep fried turkey even more than I do and she's not so sure.....

Menards has the newer big easy on sale for $119.00. Normally closer to $200.00, Menards says regular price is $240.00? It can cook a 25lb turkey. Not only is this one bigger, but you get some accessories with it. I don't know when the sale ends, but I think it's through Saturday.image.jpeg

    • That's the problem in restrictor plate races--stay on the gas and hit the car in front or lift and be hit from behind.
    • No doubt!   We didn’t have to wonder if there was actual contact though after Dillon said he had a run and just stayed in the gas.   Is what it is.  And that’s the difference I noticed.
    • So no sill plate for the walls on the perimeter then.  OK.     Again, not an expert so whatever your guys say and you’re comfortable with... I don’t know all your construction details. I - sandy County Is just that; sandy.  So it’s not too tough to get a good base.   My experience, as it relates to this, has just been based on building a 36x48 wood framed garage in Isanti County.  8 inch block on the perimeter to support 12 foot sidewalls of 2x6 construction.  My buddy that sold me the lumber said the project was only 200 feet short on interior walls from being a house.  After adding in the attic square footage it had more than my house.  Going with a pole building frame is the game changer.   Again, best of luck. It would be interesting to me to see the completed project.
    •   Didn't say you would.    
    • Lol Leech-I don’t remember saying I was going to block the driveway with logs or wire. They will begin hitting the 4x4’s beneath there that have been there to keep cars from driving on the grass. Not my deal. I was only looking for some guidance on if I’m overreacting or if there should be som me]angers employee. So, ya, like everything else, it’s a lack of manners and I’m not crazy...yet. 
    • Just had a call with the builder and the concrete guy I am working with. Neither said they would "waste" concrete on thickening the edge unless there were plans to add on to the structure at a later date. The builder said no amount of concrete on the edge will help the building stability. He says if it moves its his fault in building it. There will be no weight on the outside edge of the building, worst thing that could happen would be erosion outside the building.
    • Had looked into the panels and they pretty much doubled the initial cost of the structure. I could spry foam the entire wall cavity for less $ and have close to the same thing.
    • Most of the moving on restrictor plates is done by changing the air flow around the car being passed with no or very little contact.

    • Hello from the NW Angle!

      Minnesota fishing has been most productive in 20-24 feet of water.  Guests are bringing home their limits of Walleye and Sauger with the occasional Perch and Northern mixed in. Fish have been most active early and late in the day and the bite has been terrific. The use of electronics continues to be very beneficial with fish taking jigging spoons, jigg’n raps or rattle baits.  Snowmobile ttrails on the Minnesota side continue to be maintained and are in great shape. We are still making ice, with most spots at over 30 inches. 

      North and East of us in Canada, big Crappies are coming in on light tackle setups out of 30 feet. If you are looking for walleye, they are everywhere!

      Until next week,
