Stacking cook stove above blue flame heater?

4 posts in this topic

I have recently just purchased a cookstove and a blue flame wall heater for the shack and I have room between my 2 windows 2 install these.

My question is do you think it will be an issue with the heat coming from my heater going up directly to my cook stove bottom or not?

The reason I'm asking this is because if I put my heater anywhere else it will no longer be in the center of the house but instead either be close to a hole or close to the bunks and if the answer is NO to the first part then which end do you think I should put it on???

Blue flame heater's work very well! If your heater does not have a fan most all of the heat goes straight up. Myself, I would want the heater in the center of the house if it did not have a fan. My last house was set up like want you are taking about...cook stove was about 14" above heater...it worked out well.

In my shack I have a drop down table right above my Empire heater. I use a propane camping cook stove to cook with. If the heater happens to come on when I am cooking I end up turning the heater down because it just gets too warm while cooking. The table bottom has not ever gotten hot if the heater did run. My heater doesn't have a fan either.

    • Looking at buying a tandem axle toy hauler ice house that can haul my Polaris General. Ive looked at Firebrand, Yetti, and Glacier. I like Firebrand the most but I want the Happi jac bed and they dont think General will fit.  Does anyone own a toy hauler with happi jac that will fit a full size side x side. Mine is 74'' tall and that's the issue.
    • I hunt zone 1.  Very interesting to see those numbers.  From what I have seen the herd is showing signs of rebound in our neighborhood.  We're a ways off from being able to tolerate hunters choice, but we're seeing deer again finally.  I agree the herd is in better shape than 2-3 years ago when many people saw no deer and no signs of deer.     So what does it all mean?  I suspect the widespread pain of the glut in major swaths of zone 1 for the dark years has woke some up to the idea of passing does.  There was certainly more opportunity with fewer bucks-only zones and larger doe tag numbers in certain DPAs.    What will be interesting is how the DNR responds to more deer on the landscape up here but fewer does being shot.  We had two doe tags in our group this year and we proudly tossed them in the fire, unfilled, at the end of season.

    • I have this problem from time to time but not often.  Sometimes there are little bubbles on the bottom of the transducer and sometimes the ducer isn't below the ice, sometimes it just takes 5 or 10 minutes of sitting in the hole before it starts to pick up the jig.  Other times it works flawlessly.
    • Bingo.  Everything is going good so far.   Not that I would need to answer someone who wasted their vote but being tomorrow will be a great day I thought I'd drop you a line.     The so called Libertarians in silly town.
    • I hate to break your bubble, but your vote and other Trump voters in Minnesota were wasted votes the same as you say those who voted 3rd party were wasted.
