      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 .

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!

    • The building codes are really very important in order to keep the property safe. We need to upgrade the house acoording to these building codes.
    • And Del says ya can eat as many as ya want now!!!     
    • great cheap treat those smoked eggs.  
    • I actually prefer Honeycrisp, because of the sweet/tart flavor. Sweet tango ain't bad either. The others get TOO mushy and seem to lose flavor. But, it's a personal preference. Someone'll whine about there are better baking apples.  Made my apple roast the other day with the Honeycrisp, but put it in the crockpot instead of the oven. Came up with this 6-7 yrs ago.  And there's even a picture of it, since words give you so much difficulty, leech.            Reb's  Apple- pork roast

        One boneless 2-3 lb Pork Butt Roast Two cups  Fresh Apple Cider Rosemary Seasoned salt Black pepper to taste 4 oz Cinnamon Apple Sauce (These are the “Snak Pak” size cups) One  large Yellow Onion, sliced thin              Marinate the roast in the cider in a Zip-Loc bag, in the fridge, for 6-8 hours, turning frequently. Place roast in a greased baking dish, with some of the marinade. Sprinkle liberally with seasonings and lightly with the Rosemary.  Place thin layer of onions on top. Pour apple sauce over top. Put in a 300* oven for 45 mns to one hour, uncovered.  Cover and cook  for30- 45 mns- longer or until meat thermometer registers 155-160*. Do not overcook. Let sit covered for 15 minutes before slicing. Enjoy!  
    • @RebelSS, do you recommend any specific type of apples?
