      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 .

Gas grills?

Recommended Posts

Are Weber gas grills worth the Money? Do they last that much longer than say an Aussie or other makes? Has anyone had one for several years without the usual burners rusting out? I'm looking for a decent grill for a decent price.

I have had a Webber for 10 years and they are a nice grill.Ours sits out side on the deck year round and we use it 2 -3 times a week.I have replaced the cooking "grills" and that's about it.A couple times a year I will clean everything real good and it has run great.I would get the one with 3 burners that way you can shut the center one down (no direct heat under your food) and bake in it.I would recommend it but a guy should check around there are some nice grills out there.

I have two of them - one at home and one at the lake. As Metro said I use it about three times a week (all year round) and clean the flavorizer bars and belly of the grill once a year to eliminate flareups. I've had one for 7 years and one for 4. Both are the smaller 2 burner Genesis Silver B model without the side burner for cooking a pot of beans (I can do that inside) and has a porcelain grate. When I bought the last one it was Weber's lowest priced model in the size I was looking for. The warranty speaks for itsself - 10 years on the burners and 25 years on the hood. All parts 5 years. If you need a part you can be sure the company will still be around.

I too would recommend the three burner model for better indirect cooking and to buy a Weber cover if its kept outside year around. It's more expensive but much better than the cheaper covers you can buy.

You can also buy the grill from the local Ace Hardware for the same price as the big box stores. I wheeled the floor model out the door both times and got a free tank fill coupon to go with it.

Are they worth the money? I'd enthusiastically say yes and to bite the bullet if you have a budget for it. My 4 year old still looks and cooks like new. The ignitor even still works. The 7 year old has never rusted and maintains temps just as well today as it did new. Both are kept on outdoor decks.

Good Luck.

How do the flavorizer bars work? What are they made of?

Angled strips of steel (usually stainless) that go over the burners. Drippings hit these flavorizer bars and vaporize the drippings infusing with the meat. I've had my Weber over 10 years and have had to replace these once.

    • Yup so far this season would have had 2 nice ones with a shotgun I just keep telling myself archery is life lol
    • Doesn't get any better than that. Pic says it all. Congrats  
    • Well not the most attractive option but when the kids are out playing in the sprinkler you could get a roll of nonslip pool matting to roll out then put in the garage during the fall-winter? 
    •   OK, then how about stripping the sealer if that is what makes it slippery.   After a few years it really isn't necessary, since the concrete is mostly cured by then (yeah it keeps curing for decades but most of it is done in a year or two).     I guess if you like the glossy look then maybe the sand in the sealer thing is worth a try.
    • Season ended just like I thought it would and happy Leipold held true to his word and moved on from Fletcher...he did some good things but overall did a poor job building a team that can compete at a high level unfortunately.  It will be interesting to see how the new GM handles this situation...getting rid of under-performers will not be easy and what in return? Going to be one of those down before heading back up deals. Coyle will be the first to go IMO, Granny can go as far as I'm concerned...gotta sign Zucker even though he was terrible in the playoffs, Nino is a question mark, Staal might need to go with the up year he had but long in the tooth and now would be the only time to get anything for him, Ennis (terrible player) will be bought out, Foligno (terrible) probably not tradeable with his contract...enjoy the ride Wild fans!
    • We packed four of us in the blind and had a blast!  Just about ready to give up and gave "one last call" only to have the birds blow up not 30 yards away from us.  One of the gobblers rubbed against the blind for two feet as he walked into the deeks- pretty dang cool!  Ryan made a perfect shot and dropped the bird in his tracks.  
    • Ryan.pdf The pdf shows up as a link for me.  Is that ok Borch?  
    • Twins are 33-91 against the Yankees since 2002! Its unbelievable how awful they play against them.    Stanton absolutely murdered that hanging curveball for a HR last night.
    • I was looking for reviews last night but only found a handful and they didn't really give me that much info. They seemed to be overall positive reviews but all were written after recently applying it so no info on longevity.
