Cooker?

16 posts in this topic

Hi guys! I plan on getting a big buddy heater for my fish trap (2person) but I would like to have a cooker too! I plan on doing a lot of overnights and would enjoy some fresh fish or hot dogs! Is there an equivalent heater that can also cook? or a small lightweight cooker i could buy in addition? I have a little mini grill but i dont want to bring charcoal and lighterfluid as well... any help is appreciated, thanks!

For hotdogs, you could always just bring some tin-foil, wrap 'em up and place them on the Big Buddy.

I would reccomend the propane powered slow cooker that you can buy at Cabela's! Those things work sweet, you can bring along some soup, chili,hotdish, boil some brats, hotdogs,sausage as well. We just bring the stuff along in zip locks and throw the whole bag right in some water in the slow cooker and there ya go! Works great

Will it heat as well as the big buddy? I'm really wanting to stick with it as I think the fan system will be invaluable for overnight trips laugh

That's what I use. Just be careful, then hotdogs will flip from your hands and shoot straight down the hole!! mad

Just make sure to have a CO detector because they both need to be used in a vented area and you don't want to take that really long nap that you never wake up from frown

The Mr. Heater Cooker works great, and IMO better than the big buddy by far.

The Mr. Heater cooker is what I use. More heat than a buddy heater, flip it on its back and boil coffee or water for hot dogs etc. Drawback is you have to have a good fresh air supply so you dont get a headache or the old "Propane Flu".

The Buddie heaters supposedly have the kinks worked out for this year. New hoses etc. I will wait and see and if they are working better than the old I will be running a big buddy heater later on. I still would carry the Mr. Heater Cooker for the cooking aplications.

I have to 2nd CNCMike, The Mr. Heater Cooker is what you want. It heats AND cooks, 6' extention hose is available and the price is right. Definitely what you want!! Phred52

Phred52,

I had an incident with the shorter hose on my cooker. frown I now have the 12' hose and I zip tied the section closest to the cooker to the frame I'm not going to have my otter catch fire because the hose is too short. smile And I like having the tank outside. With all of the problems I have heard about with the buddy and big buddy, I would rather spend the money on a couple of new rods and reels and know that I'll have no problems with my mr. heater/cooker. If it gets too hot in the house I just turn off the cooker for a while or strip to my underwear, not a pretty sight I know. wink
