      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!!!

Venison Ribs?

Recommended Posts

Anybody have any tips on Venison Ribs? They are pretty much the only thing left from my room mate's deer last year and I am looking for some prep tips. Just last weekend I smoked some Pork Baby Backs low and slow and they turned out awesome. I made my own rub and smoked at 200-225 for 6 hours then wrapped in foil with some bbq sauce and back on with the corn.

Now here is what I am wondering. Would the venison ribs be just as good like that or would they get tough? I know venison is much much leaner than the pork ribs I just did, and less fat generally equals not as juicy and not as tender. Another variable to throw in the mix, this particular deer had next to no gamey taste, she was from the soybean and grain fields in the southern US and is the best deer I have ever had.

So, do I first boil them (really would hate to do this), marinate them, bake them, grill them? How does everyone else prepare them? I really want to smoke em but I am worried about tenderness when done.

My father-in-law makes them and they turn out pretty good. He marinades them over night in the fridge and then he cooks them nice and slow in the oven,

Marinate the venison by

Putting your ribs in a

casserole dish,Cover with COKE & LOTS of PEPPER

Place it in the refrigerator for a minimum of 3 hours.

After draining the COKE,Combine orange juice and brown sugar in a small bowl mixing to the approximate consistency of good gravy.

Drizzle mixture over ribs.

Place on Hot Grill and glaze periodically until meat is done to your likening.

And then invite me over for dinner! ;-)

Best of Luck

I am curious as to what it would take to smoke them. This deer happens to be one that I shot and the deer tastes just like beef.

Anyone ever smoke these? Or does it come out way too tough?

With the venison ribs being so lean I typically veer away from a dry cooking process such as smoking simply to avoid toughness. I would suggest if you do plan on grilling/smoking make sure you apply lots of moisture during the cooking process by basting.

I have in the past braised them in beer and spice then finished them on the grill prior to serving apply generous amounts of apple infused bbq sauce. I would imagine it would work with smoking as well.

Good luck and let us know how they turn out!

    • Yup so far this season would have had 2 nice ones with a shotgun I just keep telling myself archery is life lol
    • Doesn't get any better than that. Pic says it all. Congrats  
    • Well not the most attractive option but when the kids are out playing in the sprinkler you could get a roll of nonslip pool matting to roll out then put in the garage during the fall-winter? 
    •   OK, then how about stripping the sealer if that is what makes it slippery.   After a few years it really isn't necessary, since the concrete is mostly cured by then (yeah it keeps curing for decades but most of it is done in a year or two).     I guess if you like the glossy look then maybe the sand in the sealer thing is worth a try.
    • Season ended just like I thought it would and happy Leipold held true to his word and moved on from Fletcher...he did some good things but overall did a poor job building a team that can compete at a high level unfortunately.  It will be interesting to see how the new GM handles this situation...getting rid of under-performers will not be easy and what in return? Going to be one of those down before heading back up deals. Coyle will be the first to go IMO, Granny can go as far as I'm concerned...gotta sign Zucker even though he was terrible in the playoffs, Nino is a question mark, Staal might need to go with the up year he had but long in the tooth and now would be the only time to get anything for him, Ennis (terrible player) will be bought out, Foligno (terrible) probably not tradeable with his contract...enjoy the ride Wild fans!
    • We packed four of us in the blind and had a blast!  Just about ready to give up and gave "one last call" only to have the birds blow up not 30 yards away from us.  One of the gobblers rubbed against the blind for two feet as he walked into the deeks- pretty dang cool!  Ryan made a perfect shot and dropped the bird in his tracks.  
    • Ryan.pdf The pdf shows up as a link for me.  Is that ok Borch?  
    • Twins are 33-91 against the Yankees since 2002! Its unbelievable how awful they play against them.    Stanton absolutely murdered that hanging curveball for a HR last night.
    • I was looking for reviews last night but only found a handful and they didn't really give me that much info. They seemed to be overall positive reviews but all were written after recently applying it so no info on longevity.
