      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 .

Smoking Easter Ham?

Recommended Posts

Pretty new to this smoker thing and since the weather is supposed to be nice on Sunday I thought I might try to smoke the ham we plan for dinner.

It is a Cure 81 fully cooked ham so I am not sure if it would be worth it or not. I have found out that I need to bring the interior temp to 140 degrees which should not be a problem in the smoker. Was thinking about using apple wood.

Any tips or thoughts on the idea?

You can do that no problem; precooked is a piece of cake. It is as straight forward as you said. And applewood shoul be delicious. If you need anything else just ask. Good Luck

Thanks Harly - had another thought after the post - I have some liquer called "Apple Jack" which has strong apple flavor as you might imagine. Thought I might mist the meat occasionally as it smokes.

Your making me drull. A nice slow smoke at a temp of 300 degrees for 4 to 5 hours depending on size of ham should suffice.

The misting is a good idea but remember each time the hood is raised temp and smoke is lost. While misting once in a while maybe make a glaze from the Apple Jack to put on the ham half way through the smoking to create a crust over the ham.

You should have no problem with a store bought precooked ham.

Watch your internal temp of the ham, when the inside of the ham reaches 160 deg your done, I would also keep your temp of the smoker around 230-250 deg. still will take 4 or 5 hours.

My two cents, everybody has their own way of smoking, I like to keep the temp down and smoke a little longer. Apple wood is an excellent choice. I have actually use a rib rub and mustard on mine, sometime I coat with bbq sauce the last hour. depends on my mood.. Good smoking

All I can say is, once the product has hit 140, the smoke is most cycle is likely done. The rest is just bring it to finish temp. This does not mean you can't do your thing with apple, it's well worth the try. But all you have to do is bring it up a temp to eat, it't already cooked.
