    Sell Me On A New Gas Grill

    Figured I'd loop back on this with an update. I ended up getting the Weber Spirit 3 burner. Picked it up at Ace Hardware. Its the same price everywhere ($449) but Ace will assemble it, deliver it, and haul away the old one for no charge. Bought it Saturday morning had it sitting on the back patio by 3pm that same afternoon. I ended up looking at a lot of grills including many brands of gas grills, pellet grills, and some charcoal grills. There were some other gas grills that I liked, they looked to be made solidly from good materials and they came at a decent price. However, they all lacked a decent warranty. The webers use less stainless steel than some of the others and I'm not 100% sure what the china production will do to the quality and longevity of a Weber but they do come with the best warranty that I saw. I believe grates and flavorizer bars have a 5 year warranty and everything else has a 10 year warranty. Customer service and part availability was also a big selling point. Weber parts look to be easily available and if you do end up having to replace the grate, flavorizer bars, and burners it will only set you back $150 which should get you many more years out of the grill. I let my almost 3 year old son pick the color since he came with to help pick it out. I couldn't argue with his choice of red. It is clearly the fastest looking grill, now I just need to add a racing stripe.

    MN Opener

    Well did my home work again this spring, had 7 Tom's within 20 yrds. The one I took was 8 yrds from me, oh did I forget to mention I had over 100 birds on this 80 acre piece. The woods come alive around 610 am. Now to get ready for a walleye tourney the 26 and 27. Good luck to all my hunting buds.

    MN Bird

    Saturday morning I was able to put my tag on a nice bird. If I did no get to put some scouting time in I would of moved too fast. I knew these bird was going to show up but he never made a peep on roost or the ground. I was able to call in the hens with him following. The hens yelped twice on the ground and that was it. Had other birds gobbling but I knew this guy was around. It was him with 3 Jakes and 3 hens that pretty much stayed by themselves and nothing to do with the larger group of birds. I was able to see him the Saturday before opener and trail cameras showing he was coming through around 720 each morning. I shot him at 7:15 plan worked out great. 20 Gauge is becoming my favorite gun for turkeys. He was just a couple oz’s shy of 24lbs. double beard 11inch, spurs 1inch. Some big birds dropping. My dads was 25lbs and Protourbait above 24. Might head back to NE this weekend see how the week goes. I have WI left for a couple tags.

    Rush River

    Had a couple hours, so I brought my 2 younger kids out to enjoy the nice afternoon. River is a little high yet, but still pretty cloudy. I guess it was flooded pretty good yesterday. Rain must have washed in lots of food, because every trout had a big fat belly. I caught 5, and my son caught 1 (all browns). All of them on a largemouth bass colored husky jerk, which is my new favorite trout lure. Me and the kids finished the day covered in mud, and had a great time!

    All the FRP panelling is done. It came out very nice. Now all i need to do is finish the bunk and table and trim it out. Im going to wait until late summer/fall before i install the carpet so that way it goes into next ice season fresh and new.

    Time for a smoke

    That's one cut I need to do on the pellet smoker. Everything so far has turned out real moist and tender, I'm guessing since the door seals up so tight. I prefer as well to slice that day, the leftovers can go in the crockpot for shredding.. I better go get one.

    What's on the grill

    It's basically how chicken is cooked for bbq contests. I started out by trimming excess fat and skin off the chicken thighs. Then I make a brine of water, salt, brown sugar and franks red hot. I like to leave the chicken pieces in the brine for at least 4 hours. I heat up the grill to 300 and melt 2 sticks of butter in a cake pan. When the grill is preheated and the butter is melted I put the chicken pieces in skin up but some do it skin down. I sprinkle my rub seasoning on the top of the skin and under the skin. Cook in smoker at 300 for about 1 hour. Take pan out of smoker and take chicken out of butter. Dip each piece in bbq sauce and sprinkle on more rub and put back on grill for about another 15 minutes or until chicken is cooked to about 165-170.

    Missouri River Walleye

    Made it out to Chamberlain tonight after work and got a nice 19” and a 20”. Caught a couple others under 15” in just a couple hours of fishing. After a terrible ice season felt really good to wet a line in open water. Lots of people out and shore lines were crowded, can’t imagine how bad the weekends are. gonna hit it hard from the boat tomorrow, so more to come.

    Mn. Opener Decoy Setup

    I personally don't use hens often. When I do she's in a breeding position near a strutting tom. I usually go jakes of various postures or no decoys. I like to keep them guessing where that hen is at. I've had too many mature Tom's hang up, strut and gobble until the real hens show up to escort him away when using just hens.

    Rush River

    Made my long awaited return to the Rush today! Never bought a WI license last year, so it was extra special getting back there. Was also excited to find out my waders didn’t leak Caught 3 brownies, lost 2, and also a little brookie. Managed to catch a bird also! I believe it was an eastern phoebe. Poor guy flew right into my husky jerk as it was airborne. Reeled him in quickly. Luckily he wasn’t hooked, just got tangled up in the lure.

    1 x 6 untreated red cedar bds cut to 15" for the weber has worked good for me. You can get lots of cooks on one board. It's a lot cheaper than getting them at a grill store. The salmon looks good!

    Time for a smoke

    Got up early and put this small piece of brisket on my overpriced pellet smoker. I've never done one this small but my buddy who owns a meat market gave it to me at half price to get rid of it. It's almost foiling time now at 10:30 am.

    Full fillets. I cut about 4 inches or so off tail and fry it and inhale it. Then cut into 4 chuncks. First batch I bought no skin. Went back and saw it was a buck less per pound with skin on so I took skin off at home. Bradley magic mats work nice for fish.

    Yeah, you get back from vacation and the work just piled up while you were gone. Vacation only pauses it for a while but then you have to work that much harder upon return.

    Good for you Bigfish JZ. That’s a situation I can’t even comprehend. I’m one of the 50 hour/week crowd. 5 weeks of vacation built up doesn’t really mean a thing.

    What's on the grill

    For smaller pizzas I set it at 500 and put them on a pizza stone but this Papa Murphy's was too big for the stone so I set it at about 375 so I wouldn't burn the paper pan it comes with. If you like a little crispiness to your crust, it turned out wonderful that way and I will probably always do them like that from now on.

    What Are Your Favorite Turkey Calls?

    My favorite is the one that works best on any given day. I almost always carry 2 box calls, 2 or 3 pot calls with 3 or 4 strikers and a couple diaphragms.
