Heating up food?

Recommended Posts

I have a Big Buddy and an old sunflower heater. I'd like to rig up some kind of rack to heat up precooked food; stuff like breakfast burritos, soup, ham and cheese sandwich. If you could rig something to hold the food dirctly above the heating element they should heat up nicely. Any ideas out there? Thanks in advance for any help.

A friend of mine welded a stiff piece of wire mesh and to support brackets to the top of and in front of his sunflower heater. This allows him to set small pots and cans on the mesh and cook small meals.

You could also sell the sunflower and pick up a Mr. Heater Cooker. That is what i used and it works very well.

That is just nasty cooking on the heater itself with no pan. Dripping grease all over it, great way to start a fire. Get a Mr Heater cooker and a pan.

Yeah. Grease could be a problem. You're fish house could turn into a smoke house. smirk.gif This wknd I'm going try heating up breakfast burritos and brats with the big buddy, but I'll double wrap everything in aluminum foil and hopefully contain the grease. We'll see.

Always pre cook your food as you may not get it cooked properly. Go the Low Carb route as well. Bring wings, sausages venison. Keep it easy. If you want more, get a better cooker. Maybe a Coleman run by propane.

Good Luck

wrap items in tin foil and heat them up. Brats, sandwiches, burritos, anything that won't spill out of the tin foil. Then you can eat right out of the tin foil if you want, and throw it away. No plate required.

The Mr. cooker heater is the way to go. A can of campbells thick and hearty, or progresso work great... good soup and have flip top lids. works great, stir often. reheated lots of stuff wrapped in a little tin foil. When I am hungry i need to eat, and ice fishing a try to pack "light" if thats possible anymore. cooker heater is the way to go unless you ave a perm. w/ power and microwave.

I remember going to a twins game years ago. We took some hot dogs, took 'em out of the wrapper, wrapped 'em in foil, and tucked them onto the manifold of our car that got really hot while driving to the game. When we got to the game, we had nice and hot, hot dogs! Not exactly five star cuisine, but will work in a pinch. Probably wouldn't work with pizza though crazy.gif

Not exactly an answer to your question, but if I am going on an all day outing, I usually cook up some hot dogs, brats, polish sausage etc and put them in a thermos with some hot water. They stay warm all day and it beats having to worry about cooking!

    • If things in there were actually a bargain they might’ve moved more stuff.  I’ve picked up a couple things there but not more than 5-10% of the times I’ve visited it.   The pricing coupled with the “as is” , no returns policy kept me a bit gun shy of making it a viable source of gear.
    • At least you’re settling for three strikes and you’re out!   Tough start but at least you know now and have a chance to rebound in some way.  Hopefully you can at least get that late season hunt on the “old” property.  Always tough when the permission starts fading after working and and getting to know a good property.
    • Looks like severe heartburn to me!😄
    • As stated for the above reasons....I totally agree.  I can tell you this much, I also hunt late into the season if I am not tagged out, and I loosen my sling more so my thick gloves will slide through it and I can grip my bow.  I have always shot with one, so i can't speak to shooting without one.  I get a piece of mind having it that I can relax my grip and now worry about the bow "jumping" out of my hand,
    • Antsy?  That would be an understatement.  I got out bow hunting 1 time last year due to the job I was working at the time.  That job is history and am now working a job that will allow me to hunt as much as I used to.  Last month has been pretty much a disaster.......the land that we hunt on, first when we went in to kill the areas for the food plot, the guy running the sprayer decided it would be a good idea to put Roundup on the clover plot I put in last year.  It was thick and awesome and I could tell the deer were just hammering it.  Mostly does and fawns, couple small bucks, but hey, when the does need a man, he usually shows up.  Needless to say, I was a little upset when this happened.  Almost lost it when the guy got done spraying the plot and then drove over to me and said "I killed that plot, we should plant a clover or chicory plot there".  Just shook my head and walked away.  Strike one......then about 2 weeks ago the owner of the property informed us that we would no longer be able to bow hunt on his land.  Only muzzleloader, and that's only if they are completely tagged out by then.  STRIKE TWO........so I just planted over 200 dollars worth of seed in food plots that I may never even get to hunt over.  STRIKE THREE!!!!   So now I am in scramble mode to try and find some private land to hunt or start getting out to scout public land in hopes to find a good spot.  All i can do is make the best out of it and hopefully things work out the best.  Either way.....I'm going to up a tree somewhere and totally loving the experience of sitting in the woods with mother nature, with a huge smile on my face!!!!
