Heater

My spear house is only 4X4X5.5, it is insulated air tight with spray foam insulation. What kind of tiny heater would you recomend?

If it is that tight, I think I would get something with an O2 sensor.

I am debating if it is even worth it but it does make it easier to sit all day. If the outside temp is 20 degrees or above it stays pretty comfortable in it. But it was a little chilly last weekend.

I have an aluminum with 1 1/2 inch styro insul and just bought a buddy heater and used it this past weekend works great almost to good had to turn it off several times during the day.They make a smaller version of the buddy heater that is 3800 max btu's and I think that would work great for mine and defintly yours they run about 70 bucks

If you have the room I recommend the Mr Heater big buddy.

It has 3 heat settings (4,000 9,000 or 18,000 BTU), a fan (long battery life I used just over 4 D cells for the entire season of fishing weekends), tip sensor, O2 sensor and is indoor rated. 2 one pound propane tanks last a long time in an insulated house. (I heat my canvas house all day on less than 2 tanks) it has the option to connect to a larger (up to 20lb tank also)

And, It is on sale at one place in the city and on line for $89

The only downside I can see is it is a little big and clunky for a small shack.

I just got a Mr. Heater base camp model uses 1# for 5 hours.

We used it Sunday in a 4 X 6 canvas. Plenty of heat for a moderate day. With the size & insulation in your house it would be plenty of heat & it doesn't take up much space.

i think one or those little ventless heaters would be great cause u can mount it on the wall and get it off the floor.

I have one of the ventless heaters in my house which is 6'X6', insulated floor, walls and ceiling. I'll run it on low and still will have to shut it down once and awhile depending on the outside temp. Think about a fresh air intake for the heater. I used a 1" piece of PVC pipe about 16" long with a 90 elbow on both ends in opposite directions, one end sticks out the wall and the other comes down next to the heater. The one that sticks out the wall put another 90 degree pointing down (helps to keep out light and blowing snow),then I put a cap on the outside pipe when I leave.

    •   You will get plenty of recipes for a brine or injection, or even an injectable brine which work good for turkey breasts.  A common injection are the store bought ones you see in sporting goods stores in the cooking section. All kinds of flavors from Cajun, to Honey Butter, Garlic & Herbs, etc. Some even come with a free syringe.  Some simple injections you can make are apple juice (plain or jazzed up), beer with seasonings, a doctored up chicken broth and one of my favorites a Lite Apple Brine.  Since it's injected I like lower salt than you would use for an immersion brine.  My Lite Apple Brine's ratio is 1 gram of canning salt mixed into 1 ounce of apple juice.  If you buy an 8oz bottle of apple juice, just add 8 grams of canning salt, shake it and you are ready to inject.     Years ago I asked Old Dave, an online friend, for help on an injection for a pastramied turkey breast recipe I was developing.  He sent me a modified version of Shakes Injectable Brine, which is fancier than my Lite Apple Brine.... and guess what, I really like it too.  Here is the recipe... and if you want to read more, I'll have the link to my write-up below.  BTW, I was skeptical of the cloves, but I tried the first one following the recipe and it's good.  My only variation is I'll use agave nectar instead of the honey sometimes.    Old Dave's Poultry Injectable Brine, based off of "Shakes" Injectable Brine. 
      32oz clean water (non-chlorinated and not softened)
      1/4 cup pickling salt
      2 teaspoons of TenderQuick
      1/3 cup clover honey
      3-4 bay leaves
      1/4 teaspoon ground cloves
      1/2 teaspoon pickle spice

      Heat it up in a sauce pan but do not boil. For a 12-15 pound turkey, inject 2 oz in each leg, 2 oz in each thigh, and 4 oz in each side of the breast. 16 oz total per turkey. I like to do the injection at least 8-10 hours before the fire.   My Pastramied Turkey Breast write-up can be found HERE   EDIT, you smoke them until the internal is 165° to 170°.  An injection will help keep them moist even at the 170° temp.  I like a mix of cherry and hickory, but keep the amount gentle.  Apple would be a safe bet for your first one and you can always use a stronger wood next time.  
    • First off, the comment I made which you replied to with a hypothesis never stated that there was proof they did anything wrong. I merely and accurately stated that there was a chance they did some of the same things and it appears that may be the case.   You said plainly that VW could have chosen the Daimler tech but chose not to. In the end doing so may very well have found them in the same boat.    
    • Haula is probably going to see a lot of playing time so I don't doubt he will have some nice years, kind of like how Brodziak scored 20 playing as our first line center. I like Schroeder as first call up or emergency player but he just can't consistently bring it in the NHL, that is no crime because when he gets hot he is fun to watch but he just can't stay there. 
    • That's some good info, Thanks.
    •   I think they're shut down, too.  Smells like no money and more welfare...    
    •   Not sure if their still producing cardboard up at that plant anymore?
    • Now Haula and Tuch will have career seasons next year.  Haula is the odds on favorite to win the Ross trophy and Tuch should have a couple Norris' in the next 5 years.     Sounds like Wild might not bring Schroeder back either.  I really hope they are contenders for a strong center or a really nice goal scorer.  
    • Good point about the center support.  I wandered out to my ground blind on one of the last days of archery season to find the roof caved in and two poles busted. 
    • MMmmm Cloquet....   Smells like money.
    • I am a little concerned with it fading but it needs to be left up for the deer to get accustomed to it so no way around that.   I assume the sun is the main culprit in fading so I'll do my best to protect against that.  One spot I'm considering is tucked into some pines which create a lot of shade, brushing it in heavily should also help keep it out of direct sun as well.   Good point about a center support to help with the snow.  I'll make sure to add something.
