Yes. They make an adapter that allows you to use 5, 11 and 20# tanks on the Mr. Heater Cooker. Most of the big box home improvement stores carry it as well as the Mr. Heater HSOforum

That's the setup I use in my Otter Lodge, like cncmike said all you need to do is get the right hose and it's not too hard to find.

Mr.heater/cooker and the buddy both take 1 lb tanks so the thread will be the same.

Regular thread to pol hose not the low pressure with regulator.

I had a 5' hose for my heater/cooker but it was too short and I burned a hole in it, not fun when its 20 below and there are flames shooting out of the hose inside the otter.:( Get a 12' hose you'll like the extra length. I keep my 20# tank in a milk crate keeps it off the ice and snow and I can keep an adjustable wrench in the crate to tighten or loosen the nut on the tank end.

The hose is nice so you can get your tank outside and it gives you more room inside.

Larger tanks with pressure relief valves should be outside the shelter anyways. Especially when you bring the tank in from very cold outside temps.
