      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 .

What type of grill for ice fishing???

Recommended Posts

I have problems with the little gas grill blowing out on the lake. Has anyone used those infared grills? I am wondering how they cook- brats and burgers mostly. Thanks for your info

I've got the little mini weber and it does the trick. Other than that, I've also got the little mini rectangular grill that runs off of the disposable 1 lb. propane tanks. Both work fine.

I really like my Weber Q.

A little on the heavy side, but it's lasted longer than any full size grill (or any grill) that I've owned in the past.

the little coleman grills that run on the 1lb tanks are great for the ice......just remember that you do not need to let them warm up.......we found out the hard way when we let it warm up for 10 minutes or so and came out to melted grates!!!

I always just a take a small weber. Its charcoal but does great outside the sleeper houses we rent. For some reason when we rent sleepers it always seems to be below zero and the small weber with a bit extra coal does great.

I have one of those rectangle cheap ones that uses the 1lb tank. I have a Tee on my 11lb tank(or 20lb if driving on the lake). One hose goes into the heater and the other to the grill. If there is a small wind, use the house as a wind block. My setup on a windy day is to have the wind at the back of my Yukon. Then the grill will be right outside the door. There is nothing better than having brats while fishing. Unless you are warming up pizza from the night before on the heater for breakfast.

we use a camp stove/grill. It has a burner on one side and a grill part on the other side. Works great for perculating coffee in the morning and bacon, steaks, brats, burgers. plus cook beans or w/e on the other side. We picked it up at the big "C" for around $50

Weber rectangular charcoal grill on the ice, the legs lock the top on. I put enough charcoal in it before I leave for fishing, bring the chiminea along with 2 sheets of news paper. fire that puppy up about 20 minutes or so before I want to eat. I have fed 8 guys off that grill cooking on the tailgate of my truck on Mille Lacs in below zero temps. 8 burgers at a time, about 20 brats or so. I like the taste of charcoal better then gas, I also like to throw some mesquite chips on right before I put the meat on gives it a little of the southwest flavor to the meat.

Put the lid on when done and in about 20-30 minutes the grill is out and packed away for the next time. Beans go on the Mr. Heater/cooker in the shack.

I have a propane frying pan and 2 burner stove for the breakfasts if needed.

PS As you can tell from my avatar I'm not afraid to eat my own cooking. smile

We picked up a Weber Q gas model this summer for our camping trips, I was amazed at how even this thing cooks, I hesitated for the longest time based on price but this works better than most of the full size grills I have used. We set it on a picnic table or truck bed.
