      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 .

Pellet Grill/Smoker Advice

Recommended Posts

I am in the marked for a pellet grill. I am sending one of my offset smokers to the cabin and want to purchase something that will be comparable to the smoker. I don't really have the budget to spend over $1000 for the new equipment.

I guess the biggest concern that I have is having the unit create enough smoke flavor. I am guessing that smoke tubes would help out with that as well. I have a small gas grill for burgers and brats and an occasional chick breast and then another offset smoker that can cook a 200 lb pig. I am just trying fill the void in between. And...there is no such thing as having too many grills lol.

Any advice would be helpful.

I have a Camp Chef......paid around $550 or so. It does a very good job. But as you say.....I use a smoke n tube to get enough smoke taste. My neighbor has a Traeger. Pretty much the same. Excellent for setting and forgetting. But it gets pretty spendy on pellets when you make ribs for 5 hours or brisket for 10 hours. So I basically use the smoker to get the smoke taste, but instead of leaving it in longer wrapped in tinfoil.....I finish it in the oven inside. Saves on buying a lot  of pellets.
