      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 .

Electric Smokers

Recommended Posts

I'm looking at getting an electric smoker. I've looking at the masterbuilt digital smoker or the Bradley Digital smoker. Does anyone own either of these? Like or dislike them? Problems?

Thanks for any input.

I have a Masterbuilt.Have had it for 4-5 years or so.Works great.I looked at the Bradley also,but decided I didn't want a smoker that only used their wood pucks.The Masterbuilt uses any wood you want.

It is very effecient.I have made all kinds of things in it including ribs,fish,and 100's of pounds of sausage,sticks and jerky

It uses very little wood and is so well insulated that I once was making sausage in Nov. and it snowed while I weas using it.The snow did not melt off the top while the smoker held a 200 degree temp inside.

I have the Masterbuilt as well. Everything Ken said is right. I made jerky just the other day; 40 degrees outside and it worked just fine. The digital thermostat is sweet for controlling temperature...

I've done some checking also and have pretty much decided on the masterbuilt. Looks like a darn good unit for the price too. I just saw one at a large shopping club and it even has a window to watch while you smoke.

Thanks for the info guys, I actually picked up the one with the window on Saturday from one of those shopping clubs. Will be testing it out this weekend.
