New Mr. Heater Little Buddy

5 posts in this topic

I just picked up a New Mr Heater Little Buddy this morning for use in my Clam Fush Trap Scout. I had not seen these prior to visiting Gander today, they had them on sale for $49.99 with regular price being $59.99.

I set it up and did a short test in the Scout and this thing should be great on cooler days. The only downside I see is there is no adjustable heat setting, only on/off, but keeping the windows vented should assist temperature control.

Looks like just about the right height to warm wet hands when your sittin' in a portable. Nice! Too bad no variable temp though, maybe next model. Like you said, windows should work fine.

That looks like it would be great for a deer stand or goose blind besides ice fishing. Too bad the angle of the head can't be adjusted to point down and keep the ice holes from icing up.

I have been using mine in my Otter Cabin and it has been enough for me to fish in a sweatshirt. Easy lighting and its real good on propane. I got over 6 hours on a tank today.

1st buddy heater I got that actually does what it is supposed to. Would be a real good 1 man heater. Once we get around 0 it wont be enough for mt Cabin but for now its a great little heater.

    • Hey @rl_sd who had the meat on sale? Looks great btw
    • chicks maybe exploring what the beak is for
    •   You can also be a little creative with the leftover meat.  For example: The wife and I will whip up a spanish rice mixed in with the pork and make Enchiladas or heat the pork on the stove top, mix in some BBQ sauce and make quesadillas (the grandkids love them).   There's more to pulled pork than sandwiches.  
    • that is great!!!!   good for you guys!!!!
    • Your right rs_ld,  a full smoker is the way to go, leftovers can always be frozen and re heated..good eats.
    • 195 degrees on these butts. Like they say, if you are going to spend 9 hrs smoking 5# of meat, you just as well spend the same amount of time smoking 45#. The local grocery had these on sale so had a few friends take the offer to throw a roast on for them. Took two off early for slicing  Pulling the rest cost them each a beer though!
    • Very good stuff, kinda tasted like ribs with this recipe,  I'll keep at it til I find the right one!! Good luck moon lake!!
    • It will be interesting to see how the Warriors react in free agency.  Will they be able to keep the team together?  It seems like all these guys value winning above a paycheck so they might be willing to sign deals that will still allow the team flexibility to keep good role players around them.    
    • That's too bad.  The fish were ON FIRE up there.  I went out with my dad and uncle with our tiller walleye boat, and hardly a clue what we were doing, and we crushed them!  Ended up with 118 pounds of packaged salmon fillets.  I think I can honestly say it was the most fun fishing trip I've had in my life.  Here's my biggest of the trip, 25 pounds.    
    •   It's amazing to see a thoroughly talented team like Cleveland just get dissected like a back alley pick up team. I agree--GS will be THE team to beat for several more years if they keep their nucleus. I think we can make them sweat a little bit now, though, so that's pretty exciting for a change!
