      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 .

Buffalo Wing Recipes?

Recommended Posts

So I absolutly love Buffalo wings, specifically boneless ones (don't want to waste time with bones). I have been experimenting making them on my own, but just wondering if anyone else has some good recipes. Batter? Sauce?

My buddy makes some pretty killer wings and they are super simple. He just gets the little wings and drummies (bone in) and throws em in the oven or deep fryer. When they are done, just tosses em with Franks Red Hot. They are pretty darn good, though like you I would love to hear some aditional recipes to get some ideas.

If you want to do boneless I would think you could pick up some chicken breast tenderloins or some breast strips and batter them up and throw em in the fryer. Then toss in sauce. Tenderlions would be good for making a sandwich and strips better for the football parties.

roll the wings in seasoned flour with a bit of baking powder. after you roll the wings in the flour, let them sit in the fridge till the flour coating get gummy, then fry at 375. I always make these for parties, and toss them in buffalo sauce,BBQ, or a sweetend chile sauce that you can get in the ethnic isle. I make the buffalo by mixing franks hot sauce with butter

soak em over nite in Texas Style hot wing sauce. Pat em dry without rubbing your eyes, season with salt, pepper, garlic powder, lemon pepper, put em a foil pan and bake at 325 for 45 minutes, drain off juices, paint em with your favorite BBQ sauce doctored up with some more wing sauce for 45 more minutes. Check em and add more sauce during the last 45 minutes if needed. Once there are carmelized take em out, be a man and gnaw around the bones.

Zeek,

How long you frying those bad boys? The rest of your instructions seem pretty simple. I have tried the fry and dunk in Franks and that is OK but I do like the chewy coating that you get at the bars and restaurants and I think the seasoned flour and the fridge would do the trick for that. It probably also gives the hot sauce and butter something to soak into and hold onto. I may have to fire up the deep fryer this weekend!

By far the best boneless wings in the state belong to the Green Mill. Very light coating with killer sauce selection. Buy yourself the chicken tenders in by the chicken breasts. Roll in salt and pepper seasoned flour. Fry them up they won't take long so try not to over cook them. About 375 should be good on the fryer. Then mix up your favorite hot sauce half and half with melted butter. Get a nice big steel bowl put your sauce in and then your wings and toss them up while still hot.

hey windy, I will usually cut into one to see if there is any blood by the bone. usually 8-10 mins. Also I forgot to mention that I like to get the whole wing and drummy, and cut them myself.

Lots of good ideas, thanks guys!

Here's what I do,

Cut chicken breasts or tenderloins into "wing" size peices or strips. I have been experiementing with store bought breadings vs seasoned flour and the best so far has been 1 part Uncle Bucks Hot and Spicy breading/1 part flour. The flour frys a bit crispier than the store bought breadings. Then it's into the deep fryer or pan fried in enough oil to float the chicken. Usually 3-4 mins will be enough. While frying more batches I keep the wings in the oven at about 200 just to keep warm.

For sauce I start by melting 1 stick of butter (ever heard a bad recipe that started like that?), to that I add about a half table spoon of minced garlic, some onion powder, ground red pepper, and some more garlic powder (I happen to like garlic if you can't tell...) Mix it all in well with the butter and then add 1 bottle of Food Club Wing Sauce and stir together.

Shake over wings and enjoy with your favorite beverage.

I like to use Franks Redhot and I will add a couple of tablespoons of butter and 1 or 2 tablespoons of vinegar just to give it a little more bite. I also like Headcountry HOT BBQ sauce. I find that it is hotter then Franks but nothing that would burn you too bad and I will just use there plain BBQ sauce for the kids.

The recipe to end all buffalo recipes:

1 quart of Franks Red Hot Original

1 stick (1/4 lb) of UN-salted butter

Ranch dressing.

Make sure Franks and Ranch are room temp. Melt the butter and add to Franks. Mix together, start adding ranch one spoon at a time until you get to where you want to be.

Go to paulys in chaska and get their recipe. I don't know if they would give it up or not but my buds and I agree they are the best.... I don't think there's any better.One more thing there are no boneless wings its just breast meat in disguise.I agree with the vinegar for the good stuff.

    • I was gonna say my yard has been thick with juvenile birds the last few days, always harder to ID birds this time of year. Had an albino something or other with a flock of birds, not sure I've seen an albino bird before. And just had a sharp shinned hawk hanging out on the branch above the feeders.  But I feed ALL of the birds......love them raptors. I will say the cowbirds around sure tolerate the dog or I getting pretty close to them.    
    • Had a decent trip.  We fished the evening of Aug. 9-Aug. 15.  Had 2 pretty good days, 2 bad days, and the rest were just so-so.  Dad, Uncle, and Grandpa don't like getting up early anymore so we usually outdrink the fish at night and sleep in mornings.   We have slowly been learning how to consistently catch fish on this lake.  The local guys don't provide any information and neither do the guys that have been making the trip for 20+ years.  Can't say I blame them much, but would have shortened the learning curve for us a little bit.  We found a bay a few years back that we can catch 10-16" walleye all day in, just a shallow weedy bay pulling spinners.  Usually get enough eyes' for dinner and then go search the reefs, shorelines, and islands for bigger fish.   I think we finally dialed in on some bottom bouncers and have 2-3 spots were we can go and most likely catch fish with the chance at some big ones.  1oz to 1-1/2oz BB with leeches or worms work the best on these spots.  2 spots are reefs topping out at 9-10fow and the other spot is a little flatter, with access to some shallow weeds.  We also deep troll suspended fish some evenings and don't catch a lot, but the ones we do are bigger fish.  We found iwe caught more fish when we were running and gunning.  Fish a spot for 20-30 minutes and then move on until we found some fish.  This kind of stinks for Grandpa but he understands we can't catch them if they are there and active. Biggest of the week was 26 1/4" walleye with 20-25 eyes' over 20".  I think I had 2 -25" and also a 37" pike the last evening.  Really fun time and scenery with the family.  Looking forward to next year and searching more of the lake.
    • Not a cowbird. We have several around here and they are generally dark-black grey and brown. The pictured bird almost looks as though it could be an immature yellow headed blackbird. Cowbirds are quite reclusive and we have been surprised they come out to our feeders, but they have become pretty regular customers. Like the deer that graze in the front yard. Last night we had the buck, doe and twin fawns and even though we talked softly to them they did not spook,  but seemed to simply acknowledge our presence on the deck and continued to feed. And of course, as usual, the black squirrels are gathering all MY walnuts!  darn.....I just can't win. The chipmunks eat my strawberries, deer eat tomato plants and squirrels eat my walnuts. I'm left with this old bottle of Beefeaters, a small bottle of vermouth and a few olives in a jar.  Things are tough out here in the wilderness.
    • Quincey should be a solid guy. I don't recall watching him play, but by looking at his stats over the years it appears to be an upgrade over Scandella.
    • Just looked up the yellow. Definitely not, no white on wings and way too yellow. And all the pictures of a cowbird on Google don't show a cowbird with the rusty colored ring on it's back.
    • Spending most of my time in Dallas these days due to my job.  Will be fishing the Otter County Area in a couple of weeks.  Can't wait!  Just wondering what you guys are seeing?  I am assuming the Bass are in and will be in their late summer patterns which to me means that you could find 'em anywhere.  One of the questions my friend had (I guess watching KVD in Elite Series and  Major League fishing -- I think his recent win on the Elite Series on St Lawrence River was mainly a drop shot) was jerk baits for this time of year.  Frankly, I use mostly jigs and plastics.  Watching KVD, I think I should give jerk baits more a try.
    •  It looks yellow in the bad picture but it's a very rusty medium brown. Definatly in the blackbird family though I think. I need a decent camera. Eye guy, you told me about a not too expensive digital camera with a good zoom lens didn't you? I don't think that's it. The ring on its back is the same rust color. 
    • Think so...!  Yaller headed B bird, like the Duffster said.   https://www.allaboutbirds.org/guide/Yellow-headed_Blackbird/id
    • Yellow headed blackbird?
    • It looks way to light brown to be a cowbird but I see nothing else in my bird book it could be??? I know this is a bad picture but it's the best I can do. The thing is so tame I can almost walk right up to it and it never goes away for long.
