      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 .

Making a pork shoulder on the egg this weekend and wanted to try and make some bbq sauce this time instead of buying some. I 'm sure there are plenty of recipes available if I was smart enough to do a search but not sure what the heck i do wrong but when I search for bbq sauce, all i get is other types of sauces. Just looking if someone has a good recipe they can recomend to me. (usually prefer more the runny bbq sauce then the thicker ones if someone has a good one of those) Thanks

In a saucepan, melt about 3 tablespoons of butter over medium heat. Add a quarter cup of minced onions and saute for 6 to 8 minutes, or until the onions begin to turn golden. Stir in a cup of tomato sauce, a cup of white vinegar, a quarter cup of worcestershire sauce, a couple of teaspoons of sugar, a teaspoon of salt, some black pepper, some cayenne pepper(usually a 1/4 teaspoon each) and maybe a dash of your favorite hotsauce. I use Franks hot sauce but it doesn't matter. Reduce the heat to low, and cook until the mixture thickens, approximately 20 minutes for a medium bodied sauce. You could take it off a little earlier if you want a runny one, this is a good sauce I use on everything. Hope it's good enough.

Use the sauce warm. It keeps, refrigerated, for a couple of weeks.

I know it's not a recipe and I apologize for that but a rsstaurant in Eden Prairie called Baker's Ribs has the best barbecue sauce ever. It's on the runny side and they make batches and bottle it themselves for sale at the counter. It's a texas barbecue joint with more of a memphis sauce. I use it when I make stuff like that. MMMMMMMMM. I know Iknow you wanted to make your own didn't mean to hijack your thread but I guarantee that is what you are looking for.

If you go to baker's stick to the sausage, ribs and dirty rice the other meats they wrap in plastic and aren't so hot. Texas based outfit that has 5 shops in texas and one in Minnesota one of the kids married a minnesota gal. Texas is known sausage and beef but take it from me it tastes more like pot roast than barbecue beef brisket.

I Made some that had rootbeer in it that was the way to go on ribs.

Wheres the recipe? I love root beer and a BBQ sauce with it in it sounds interesting.

I miss living in Kansas City, all the local BBQ joints sell their sauces in grocery stores down there, like Famous Daves.

    • To answer your question, at peak eclipse I measured 3500 LUX outside, which is brighter than thick clouds. To fish, what happened today was a typical cloud moved in front of the sun.
    • I did, but didn't find anything. Not sure I am doing a proper keyword search however. I believe it is called a termination cap. 
    • So, what is your training that makes you more of an expert than the Cardiac Rehab center of the Mayo Clinic?   You got the 6 week certificate in sales from the Chiropractic Institute?   Seriously, do you have a degree in a health field?  Have you even had any serious scientific training in any field?  Last I recall, didn't you work selling gadgets to Chiropractors or something?  I know you are a big fan of the subluxations and spinal adjustments to cure cancer and diabetes and prevent autism as touted by straight chiropractors.   
    • Here's some footage from the last couple weeks in central and northern WI. Gotta work at it to find the big ones, but managed to find some nice ones lately!  
    • Yup. Like a shopping cart.  
    • Well, being you are not engaging your hamstrings on that treadmill, and you're TRAINING on it!!, you can pretty much guarantee your feet sliding out from underneath you, slipping on the ice next time you encounter it.  Thank you treadmill, best piece of equipment in the gym, for an orthopedic surgeon.   Let me guess, you like to walk slow on it, so its good for you.....?  
    • Thanks RD!  Good info. That's an interesting technique with the Chatterbait.  I will try it.  If you don't mind -- what kind of trailer do you like with the Chatterbait for that technique?  There will be 3 of us fishing so it will a little tight.  Probably will only bring 3 rods...  I am thinking a Jig rod, T-rig rod (plan to try a Nekko rig with this as well)  and one moving bait rod (Spinnerbait, Chatterbait, Buzzbait, Frog, Cranks, etc.)  The great thing about Ottertail county (like others in Mn), there are a thousand lakes... we will hit 2 or 3 a day.  If we have good conditions (low pressure/moderate wind) we will probably try Musky on Battle Lake.
