Recirculator

Recommended Posts

I'm not certain that I know exactly what this is supposed to do as I never use it, but correct me if I'm wrong.....this function recirculates the water within the livewell by pumping it out and then pumping it back in with oxygen added? Is that right?

How many people use the recirculator? I guess I've always just used the aerator on the timer setting.

The recirc pumps water from the drain port on the bottom of the livewell, runs it through the livewell pump and then back into the livewell.

Some people like to use them when they're running between spots on the same lake.

I suspect the intent at the time was that you could put it on recirc and keep your fish alive until you get back to your house or wherever you're going to clean them. This isn't allowed anymore in some states due to Aquatic Nuisance Species and the potentail to transfer them from lake to lake.

Nope - the aerator and the recirculator run off the same pump on most boats (and I'm pretty sure yours is that way - some fiberglass boats have seperate recirc / livewell pumps). So the only difference between recirc and aerator is where the water is coming from - aerate comes from the lake and the excess water is dumped out the overflow, recirc pulls water from the bottom of the livewell and dumps it back in the top.

    • I've never bought a car/truck over $15K, so yeah.  It would take a powerball jackpot before I was in the market for a dealer showroom boat.
    • Dry brine with Mortons Tenderquick, amount directions per pound are on the package in a ziplock in the fridge. Add seasonings like onion, garlic, black pepper, maple sugar or brown, allspice, cinnamon, nutmeg. What ever you prefer. Take meat out of brine and let sit in Fridge overnight. Smoke around the 130 degree mark for 12 hours (for my liking) or as smokey as you like. Cut into 1/8" slices and cook in the oven 425 degrees for 20 to 30 min to your desired crispness. 
    • I just bought two panels that I am going to trim slightly to replace one of the 3 grates on my Big Horn grill... I actually have a buddy that received them this weekend for fathers day and say they work just as advertised on his pellet grill.... I will give an update next week when they arrive.
    • never heard of it....  
    • Since we are talking about searing stations, etc....   Has anyone ever used the Grill Grate product on their pellet grills?   https://www.grillgrate.com/shop-grillgrates/standard-grillgrates/pellet-grills/
    • You've got the right idea. There are a ton of bacon recipes here on HSO if you search for bacon - I've pasted one here to what seemed like one of the more popular brines. I made bacon once, and it turned out OK, but it's a long process.  Good luck and let us know how it turn out.  
    • Reverse seared a big thick 3lb cowboy ribeye for Father’s Day over charcoal. The novelty of the idea was fun. Then after cooking you realize you pay a lot of money for bone and fat and not a lot of meat.   Lesson learned to just go with a nice thick regular ribeye steak instead next time.  
    • Well this weekend certainly wasn't ideal for fishing weather. Between strong winds and storms every day Friday-Sunday it made it hard to get some good quality fishing time in. Just kept getting chased off the water with thunder and lightning in the area every day and night. Never saw a lot rain but plenty of storms in the area to keep us off the water.   Did manage to catch some fish regardless just nothing big enough or worth keeping. Not a keeper walleye caught and lots of skinny 8-9" perch which were all released.
    • Hey everyone my wife bought me a pork belly to try to smoke and make bacon out of it. Does anyone have any advice i have never done one before. Sounds like your brine it for a while then smoke then let cool and slice. But it would be nice to hear from people that have done it.
