Cooker?

Recommended Posts

Hi guys! I plan on getting a big buddy heater for my fish trap (2person) but I would like to have a cooker too! I plan on doing a lot of overnights and would enjoy some fresh fish or hot dogs! Is there an equivalent heater that can also cook? or a small lightweight cooker i could buy in addition? I have a little mini grill but i dont want to bring charcoal and lighterfluid as well... any help is appreciated, thanks!

I would reccomend the propane powered slow cooker that you can buy at Cabela's! Those things work sweet, you can bring along some soup, chili,hotdish, boil some brats, hotdogs,sausage as well. We just bring the stuff along in zip locks and throw the whole bag right in some water in the slow cooker and there ya go! Works great

Will it heat as well as the big buddy? I'm really wanting to stick with it as I think the fan system will be invaluable for overnight trips laugh

That's what I use. Just be careful, then hotdogs will flip from your hands and shoot straight down the hole!! mad

Just make sure to have a CO detector because they both need to be used in a vented area and you don't want to take that really long nap that you never wake up from frown

The Mr. Heater Cooker works great, and IMO better than the big buddy by far.

Really? Hrm I guess I will have to look into it more... thank you!

The Mr. Heater cooker is what I use. More heat than a buddy heater, flip it on its back and boil coffee or water for hot dogs etc. Drawback is you have to have a good fresh air supply so you dont get a headache or the old "Propane Flu".

The Buddie heaters supposedly have the kinks worked out for this year. New hoses etc. I will wait and see and if they are working better than the old I will be running a big buddy heater later on. I still would carry the Mr. Heater Cooker for the cooking aplications.

Phred52,

I had an incident with the shorter hose on my cooker. frown I now have the 12' hose and I zip tied the section closest to the cooker to the frame I'm not going to have my otter catch fire because the hose is too short. smile And I like having the tank outside. With all of the problems I have heard about with the buddy and big buddy, I would rather spend the money on a couple of new rods and reels and know that I'll have no problems with my mr. heater/cooker. If it gets too hot in the house I just turn off the cooker for a while or strip to my underwear, not a pretty sight I know. wink

    • Among other wilds that have moved into our urban areas, we can now add loons.  There is a breeding pair on the lake formerly known as Calhoun, mostly staying on the west and northwest sides.  But there is also a bunch of yearlings fishing the east side, numbering maybe six or seven and so unafraid that they come right up to the 36th Street dock and try to steal suckers being used for musky bait.  Maybe the call of the wild is not really so alien to the South side of Minneapolis, but it looks like the loons have moved in and can be heard calling from time to time. 
    • Sounds like you guys gave her heck up there to find them. I'd be praying thanks, too if I got that one on! ☺️
    • Quick recap:   Weather was too darn “nice”!  Upper 80’s - 90’s; no wind to speak of; mostly sunny. Water temps were anywhere from 64 - 71 depending on location and day.   We looked the lake over from end to end, marking up our map and returning to some places where we saw fish either later the same day or a couple days later.  We could literally see the transition from spawn to post spawn happening during our stay.  Being new to both muskie fishing and that lake, we spent time in dead water as much as good water but feel like we got a pretty good handle on how to go about setting up a more efficient return visit.  It was a lot work and long hours but I’d go back this weekend if I could so I must’ve enjoyed it.   A few pics as hoped for:
    • big dave 2 and leech, darn good lookin meals!!!!  Dave have a good weekend!!!!
    • Ok Dave have a good weekend. Hope you get over the whole butt hurt Leech deal! Not sure where you got that I don't like folks smoking or grilling things?  I know I do enough. Have fun! 🙂  
    • Heavy rains across northwestern Wisconsin last weekend and early this week have flooded some roads and caused washouts on some highways, roads, state parks, forests and trails. According to the National Weather Service the area has received 7 to 12 inches of rain from Friday through Monday.Several park system property or portions of properties are closed due flooding. Amnicon Falls State Park, closed temporarily but has reopened, though some roads, trails and observation areas remain closed. Pattison State Park is open for camping only; all trails, observation areas, picnic and day-use areas are closed. There are washouts on the dam that forms Interfalls Lake and Highway 35 over the dam is closed. A campground and horse trail are closed at Governor Knowles State Forest and the day use areas along the river at Interstate Park are underwater.Water was roaring over Little Manitou Falls at Pattison State Park.Photo credit: Gervase ThompsonAll rivers in the region are running extremely high. The falls at both Amnicon and Pattison are roaring, but road closures mean observing the falls now is challenging. The Bois Brule and Flambeau rivers are high enough that some canoe launches and campsites are underwater. The water is making its way downstream and the Lower Wisconsin River is running very high with all sandbars submerged and canoeing and kayaking not recommended. The river is expected to crest Muscoda this weekend at 40,000 cubic feet per second. .
    • I'm still going to smoke this fatty while camping this weekend whether Leech likes it or not.....😋       See you fellers on Monday........
    • Rick didn't like all the "My Grills bigger and better then yours" posts!  😅
    • We switched to a new server. Had a glitch in our dB that lost a couple days of posts.
    • I ripped a hole in one of my favorite pairs of fishing shorts just need a decent sized patch to cover her up
