Stacking cook stove above blue flame heater?

Recommended Posts

I have recently just purchased a cookstove and a blue flame wall heater for the shack and I have room between my 2 windows 2 install these.

My question is do you think it will be an issue with the heat coming from my heater going up directly to my cook stove bottom or not?

The reason I'm asking this is because if I put my heater anywhere else it will no longer be in the center of the house but instead either be close to a hole or close to the bunks and if the answer is NO to the first part then which end do you think I should put it on???

Blue flame heater's work very well! If your heater does not have a fan most all of the heat goes straight up. Myself, I would want the heater in the center of the house if it did not have a fan. My last house was set up like want you are taking about...cook stove was about 14" above heater...it worked out well.

In my shack I have a drop down table right above my Empire heater. I use a propane camping cook stove to cook with. If the heater happens to come on when I am cooking I end up turning the heater down because it just gets too warm while cooking. The table bottom has not ever gotten hot if the heater did run. My heater doesn't have a fan either.

    • this piece looks good, i interessting recipe for marinade. I make a meat with basil but want to taste new recipes. And one more think - i may advice you while smoking make a incisions if meat very broad
    • You sure seem to say Grill a lot though! 😏    
    • I have an old MES 30that I put a new element in right before I got my pellet grill. I decided that all of the wet chips is what raised havoc on the last element, so now I run a smoke tube that I burn pellets in. The nice part is that I can now do cold smoking
    • You could but that's just another thing and I like to make bigger batches. Like 50 # plus and I like them hanging. The MES is marginal at best for this and I have the cold smoker attachment on that.   If you just want small runs of stuff that might work. 
    • Can you put a cold smoker box on the side of yours? That would be a good set up for sausage, sticks, etc.  
    • Yep.....😊     Nothing wrong with that. I've just decided I like to cook great BBQ as easily and lazily as possible. 😋
    • I'm still keeping the MES until I make my fridge smoker. The Pellet grill is great for some things but I still like a regular smoker for sausages, sticks etc. 
    • No, I wanted both in one package.     A pellet grill IS a smoker and takes just as much time to cook low and slow as any other smoker.
    • Boat prices are INSANE!!! Even used boats are still rediculous.   As far as buying old used boats and rebuilding them for profit, I think you’ll be hard pressed to break even, let alone make a profit (unless you find one for dirt cheap). An old boat is still an old boat even if it’s been fixed up. 
    • So you really wanted a fancy Grill, not a smoker? Smokers do take up a lot more time but I'm having a lot of fun with my Char grill smoker.
