      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 .

Rib Recipe

Recommended Posts

Never cooked moose, so don't know if there would be a difference. For rubs, I like jalapeno salt, seasoned salt, onion powder, garlic powder, and whatever else you can think of. The sky is the limit in the rub. Leave on overnight and get them in the smoker. Couple of hours at low temp/high smoke. Get them in the oven at @ 300 for two to three hours (wrapped tight in foil, then placed in a roaster). Remove when the meat is just about ready to fall off the bone and finish them on the grill, just to crisp them up. This is for pork, but I imagine moose would be somewhat similar. These ribs are very, very tender and that is how I like them. If you like them a little more chewy, lessen the oven time or disregard it all together. Just finish off on the grill.

I serve my ribs "naked". Like all things, you just don't want to over-smoke. For wood, hickory is a winner and so is apple. Pecan is nice if you can get it. Have fun and let us know how they turned out.

I did ribs last weekend for about 15 people. The night before I cut them in serving sizes. Then put them in boiling water for about an hour or until they were ready to fall off the bone. I also put some Liquid smoke and seasoning in with the water. Then let them cool and put them in a plastic bag with Famous Daves Rich and Sassy and into the frig. The next night I took them out about half hour before to get them to room temp. Then put them on the grill at medium heat. Flipped once just to darken the sauce. Then served and listed to the compliments

Can't help you with the rub....but I can assist with the cooking!

Use a 3-2-1 method when you smoke ribs. Peel off membrane and place on smoker bone side down.

I smoke my ribs at 225-230* Smoke for 3 hours. At the 3 hour mark wrap them in aluminum foil for 2 hours. At the 2 hour mark, remove from aluminum foil and place back in the smoke for 1 hour. During that last hour, I spread my homemade bbq sauce..you will see the meat begin to pull from the end of the bone.

GOOD LUCK!

Doop- During the 2 hours in the foil, are the ribs resting at room temp or on the grill or in the smoker or what?

My guess would be to wrap in foil, then throw back in the smoker. It's probably to not over-smoke them directly. Just my guess though!

I'm doing some right now. I do mine a little different, since I don't have a smoker. I put the rub on mine and let them sit overnight in the fridge. Then I put them in a big disposable tin pan (bone side down). I fill the bottom of the pan with liquid, usually water, and put foil on top. I cook them on the grill at around 250 or so for 3 hours indirectly in the pan. (This can all be done in the oven too, it's just precooking them). Then I take them out and BBQ sauce them up for 30 minutes or so on the top rack of the grill. I make sure to keep them wet with bbq sauce, so you don't get that burnt bbq sauce flavor.

The last time I did this, they were falling right off the bone, literally.

Spice Rub Ingredients (per slab)

1 Tbs onion powder

1 Tbs granulated sugar

1 tsp chili powder

1 tsp non-iodized salt

1/2 tsp black pepper

1/2 tsp cayenne pepper

1/2 tsp cumin

Consider the cayenne pepper optional; the more delicate palates may not care for the extra spiciness...

You definately don't need a smoker to get some great ribs. Some of my favorite restaraunts don't smoke theirs. One thing I forgot, my main ingredient is brown sugar. A handful of that combined with the spicy things really makes it interesting. I stole that idea from the rib cookoffs on t.v.

Sorry it took so long to get back but yes keep them on the smoker during that entire 6 hour period. I like to use mesquite wood because you get a strong smokey flavor. MMMMM!!!!!

I'm going to do some pork spares this week....I'll be sure to post some pictures.

Be careful about what you put on your ribs during the cooking process....sugary substances burn very easily.

Doop,

You don't use brown sugar in your rubs? Makes sense that it would burn. I just use very little heat in mine, so never noticed the burned sugar. What do you use for rubs? I have seen your pics before and they are special. Still doing the smoked eggs?

Those smoked eggs led to some of the worst gas I've ever had! lol

So yes...still doing the smoked eggs much to the chagrin of my wife! My very first batch of ribs...during the last hour of the smoking process...I used a very sugary BBQ sauce and the sauce carmalized more than what I wanted. The temp got a little high on my too. So now I make my own BBQ sauce smile

I use a rub produced by a guy down here in Texas. TexasBBQrub search on google will get you to the HSOforum I believe. It's awesome stuff. I use the very same rub on my scrambled eggs in the morning....there isn't much it doesn't go well with!

I'm sure the experts will think this is cheating, but I think the Famous Dave's rib rub you buy in the store is good stuff. I put it on 24 hours before I cook my ribs...

    • I would always use tree tubes for any hardwoods. If it's small enough to need a tube for protection from deer, rabbits, other... than use the tube. If your putting in the time and money to plant them, you might as well protect them.    Lots of them are on the market. I have only used one type of tube myself. Tubex- combitudes (spelling?). If you are worried about deer you should get the 5 foot tubes. Since that is about the upper limit of their browsing heights. I've used the fiberglass green stakes from L & M instead of buying the stakes from tree tubes suppliers. The only problems i have had so far is a curious bear, who wanted to chew a few tubes.    The other thing you should think about talking to your local DNR forester. They can help you to make sure you are planting trees that are correct for your soils. And may be able to help financially to purchase tubes. https://www.dnr.state.mn.us/woodlands/cfm-map.html    Hope this helps, 
    • Thanks. Even got the itch to take a spin after seeing other bikes out today. Just a short ride down to the car wash to knock the dust off. Should have worn gloves though as it was a little nippy on the fingers. Maybe Ill run my Super Glide down there tomorrow
    • Birds in my area are too responsive, and yes i had 2 big fellas come in to my 1 tom and 2 hen set up. Accually i had the whole flock coming in and it was load with the hens and all the toms. One thing i fogured out is if there is alot of birds dont be soft calling. I tried to top the old hen and thats what pulled them my way. Good luck to my team and hopfully everybody could have a morning like I did, it wont be forgotten.
    • Well sounds like all went well. My wife just called and picked her up. She does have a drain tube but according to the wife she's acting normal..... For her!
    • Nice to see a few bird getting knocked down. Good job to those successful so far!  Are you guys out A season seeing a lot of responses to calls or decoys? 
    • good luck Zach!
