      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 .

I made a breakfast version a couple weeks ago with bacon, sausage links, and cheesy scrambled eggs. I thought it was wonderful, but the eggs didnt go over with all the judges...go big or go home smile

Ha, I was thinking of adding some bacon to it, bet that would be tasty. Funny thing is that I've never been a fan of chili, my wife either, but this stuff is awesome!!! It's chili crack!!

Would you be willing to email me the recipe so it doesn't get posted on the web? This really sounds like a good recipe and I would like to make it for this weekends deer camp.

jbDragon - I make mine real similar - venison cubes, venison link sausage cooked and cut up, and ground venison mixed with pork.

Same basic as yours but I go heavy with the saute'd diced peppers and onions. And beans. We like the beans so I usually use 5-6 diff kinds. dark and light kidney, garbonzo, black beans, cant think of the name but the kind baked beans are made of, and lima beans...

Two packets of McCormick chili seasoning - one hot and one regular, garlic, cans of stewed, crushed and dices tomatos. Salt, pepper, and spices. Hot sauce and crushed red till the heat is right. (note, you can always add more but you cant take heat out) grin

I make big batches as it freezes well...

Not a bad idea at all...If there was enough interest we could charge $$ for people to sample...then donate to and outdoors organization? Maybe even a requirement that the chili has some wild game of some sort?

Does anyone have a chili recipe that they DO want to share? It doesn't have to be award winning or anything. I'm just sick of the same old stuff I always make but love chili when it is good.

Simmer pinto beans and 1 beer and reduce, add 2nd beer and reduce, starting to break up or lightly mash the beans. Lastly, prepare the cornstarch by mixing with small amount of water and then adding to the bean/beer mixture. Cook for 5-10 more minutes and add mixture to crockpot.

Big Dave... try this one... less traditional but oh sooo good!

Quote:
I've been using Emeril's chili recipie. It is a beef stock based recipe as opposed to tomato based. It a lot less acidic, but still has nice 'heat' to it. I use lean venison when I make it... it adds more flavor. Everyone I've served it to loves it. Most people are used to a tomato 'heavy' chili. This is the exact opposite, so it should really stand out.

2 tablespoons vegetable oil

2 cups chopped onions

Salt

Cayenne

2 pounds stew meat, cut into cubes

1 tablespoon chili powder

2 teaspoons ground cumin

Crushed red pepper

2 teaspoons dried oregano

2 tablespoons chopped garlic

3 cups crushed tomatoes

1/4 cup tomato paste

8 cups beef stock (I use Emeril's, it comes in a box, found in the soup section at the store)

2 tablespoons masa flour

4 tablespoons water

1 cup canned dark red kidney beans

1 bag tortilla chips

1 1/2 cups grated Monterey Jack cheese

6 tablespoons sour cream

1 small jar jalapenos

In a large saucepan, heat the vegetable oil. When the oil is hot, add the onions and saute for 3 to 5 minutes, or until the vegetables start to wilt. Season with salt and cayenne. Stir in the stew meat, chili powder, cumin, crushed red pepper, and oregano. Brown the meat for 5 to 6 minutes. Stir in the garlic, tomatoes, tomato paste, and beef stock. Bring the liquid up to a boil and reduce to a simmer. Simmer the liquid, partially covered for 1 1/2 hours, stirring occasionally, or until the beef is tender. Skim off the fat occasionally.

Mix the masa and water together. Slowly stir in the masa slurry, add the beans, and continue to cook for 30 minutes. Reseason with salt and cayenne. Place a handful of the chips in each shallow bowl. Spoon the chili over the chips. Garnish with the grated cheese, sour cream and jalapenos.

Good Luck!

Ken

    • You heard wrong and he left on his own, multiple times....
    • I have been adding a little equipment to my butchering hobby every year and this year I am going to add a bandsaw to the mix.  On the WWW there are a bunch of them in the 280-450 range that all look like rebranded clones of each other.    Then, from there it looks like the next jump is the Rikon/grizzly model that has bearing guides, a better blade and it looks like a better fit and finish for 650- 800 depending on the retailer. Does anyone have any experience with either of these types or anything similar?  I'm not going to spend the dollars to get a commercial model.     
    • Ya its been a long day. I don't know if I'm a puss or what but I havent even been able to eat today. Never lost a deer before. Hopefully never again. Worst part is I don't know what went wrong I would make exact same shot again.
    • Awesome thank you  
    • Sorry Charlie.  Way I heard it, the lords didn't like him having a plug for his sight in his .sig so he moved on, like many of the cooking folks did to another place.   I am there too, so come on over....  Just leave the politics here.  
    • Gee Dave, you are sure a  believer in the overprotective government.   I bet you cook all your eggs hard, and your chicken to 165.  You need to read up on pasteurization... It's a time and temperature thing. 
    • Reinhardt's skin was about as thick as sausage casing, it was after Obama got re-elected and the realization that he couldn't howl from his deer stand after Romney's victory. That's when he left, so it's been a while. He was a good dude with a lot of experience in a variety of things. A lot of folks are missed around these parts.  
    • Yeah, I think the first time was after too many people made fun of Michelle Bachmann.  Too bad. He had some great old school knowledge of sausages and butchering in general. 
    • I thought he just got mad and took his ball and went home? Didn't he do that at least a time or 2? I do miss Reinhardt though....
    • Check his web sight which caused him to get expelled from HSO many moons ago.... It has all his recipes and info on it.   www dot sausage heaven outdoors dot com   with a http:// and some deleted spaces you will be golden.
