      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 .

    You know what we all love...

    When you enchant people, you fill them with delight and yourself in return. Have Fun!!!

Here are a couple...

As you may recognize, I extensively use for recipes and save them to word documents for future use.

Great stuff.

People tell me I look like I like to eat.


Elk Sausage Recipe Bobby Flay

4 to 6 pounds elk meat, well-trimmed (or other venison)

2 to 3 pounds pork fat, well-trimmed (2-1 ratio meat to fat)

1 tablespoon dry thyme

1 tablespoon dry oregano

1 tablespoon dry sage

2 tablespoons salt

1 cup finely chopped onion

½ cup finely chopped garlic

½ cup crushed red chili pepper flakes, (optional)

1 to 2 cups roasted, peeled, and diced green chili peppers (optional)

Sun-dried tomatoes (optional)

Additional garlic (optional)

10 to 15 feet sausage casing

½ cup maple syrup (for breakfast sausage - optional)

Grind each meat separately then mix together.

It is best if you grind the meat when it is very cold.

Mix the ground meat together with all the seasonings. Form into small patties.

Sauté a small piece and test for taste.

You may need to adjust the spices.

Next, place a length (10 to 15 feet) of sausage casing on a sausage horn and force mixture into casing.

Twist sausages in alternating directions to create 6 to 8-inch long sausages.

If well protected, finished sausages can be frozen in a non-frost free freezer for up to a year.

The sausages can be cooked directly on a grill or sautéed in a pan.

For best results, boil sausages first and finish on grill or pan.

Can serve with maple syrup.

This recipe will make 10 lbs. of excellent breakfast sausage.

5 lbs venison (well trimmed)

1 T. sage

5 lbs pork (butt roast)

2 tsp. garlic powder

½ lb. lean bacon ends

4 tsp. dry mustard

2 ½ T. coarse pepper

1 tsp. nutmeg

4 T. salt

1/2 tsp. cloves

2 cloves garlic, minced

2 tsp. allspice

Cut venison and pork in strips that fit your grinder. Combine all the seasonings (except garlic) in a bowl and blend. Sprinkle the seasonings and garlic over the meat. A large, plastic tub works well for this. Toss the meat until it is all well coated with seasonings. Grind once and mix thoroughly. Fry one small patty to check the seasonings. Adjust seasonings, if necessary.

Grind the meat a second time. Again mix it well. Add about 1 cup water during the mixing. Cover with plastic and let stand overnight in a cool place before packaging. Package the same as you would hamburger.

Note: Reduce the amount of spices if you prefer a milder sausage.

My suggestion would be to do a search in Google Copycat Jimmy Dean Sausage recipes and there will be several web sites, you should find the copycat recipes for regular, maple and sage. I've tried them all and they are great.

On the summer sausage side, I've tried many different web site recipes and homemade recipes and really haven't found anything to my liking. However, I would recommend PS seasonings HSOforum, consistently great flavors and a wide variety of sausage to try. My favs are garlic summer sausage and jalapeno cheddar. The cure also comes with the package
