      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 .

Yeah it's a blast but takes alot of time and a big cooker that you can rotate or a big hole in the ground on some hot coals. It usually takes a long time like all night and into the next day to cook it thoroughly and the meat will fall apart. Ideally find a pig that has been scalded to get the hair off so it's ready to go. You might want to wrap chicken wire around it to keep the meat from falling off. I think you can find lots of hog-roasting info online and I'm sure some of the guys on this site will have lots of good info. Makes me hungry just thinking about it.

I've done about 15 pigs. In fact I'm doing one coming up this Saturday.

A lot of people leave the skin on when they roast a pig. I don't. The best way to make a bland pig is to leave the skin on in my opinion. Zero smoky flavor makes it into the meat. I guess they worry about the pig drying out, but I have never had a problem.

I have the farmer skin the pig and leave the fat on. The layer of fat will melt during the cooking process and continuously baste the meat.

I also inject the pig with seasoning as well as rub it down inside and out.

Cooking time depends on the size of the pig, the weather, cooking temp, etc. I've cooked a small 90 pound pig in less than 10 hours. I had a 210 pounder take what seemed to be forever and a day.

Maybe I'll take pictures of my process this weekend and post em' if your interested.
