I was thinking about making a type of rug out of something like tin foil. Tin foil would reflect the heat, and if i just did something on the bottom it would keep the ice from melting and causing puddles.

Sit it on a square of Reflectix.

I do the interlocking rudder mats, but like the idea of the milk crate.  It would be a good way to conserve space in the flip over and help keep my rod tip from getting to close to the heater.

I use a milk crate in my hub shanty. It works awesome. In my mind, nothing is going to do the job other than raising it off the ice. Even a 2" thick piece of plate steel will heat up and melt the ice under it at some point.

IF you are using a flip over



If using in a hub shelter go with a milk crate or a plastic file case/crate...3 gallon bucket works too

I like Bart's foil pan of musical fruit salad that is topped with tube steak. ;D  A real man's meal ! ;)  That Grid looks like the ticket.   Happy trails !  :)  IceHutt

you can use a disposable type aluminum roaster pan under the heater...they're cheap, light and no big deal if it gets banged up. Or a piece of reflectix

The food looks great and I really like Bart's mod using another grill front to make the horizontal holder.  It looks like it came with the heater, a really clean mod.  I just ordered a replacement grill from Mr. Heater.  I think it was around $6.50 plus sipping.

thanks bart for the tip!
looks like its wound around the slits and is semi-permanent?

would be nice for an easy on/off solution to save space and safety issues.

these folks have a heavy duty wire guard for 1$ more than standard wire, they sell both tho and slighty cheaper than mr heater on shipping. same cost for regular wire guard, but mr heater doesn't show one for sale.
    
this site is back ordered, but he had helped me find it on mr heaters site

  I have a question about the buddy heaters. On their web site they show some models that can't be sold in Mass. and Canada, and some that can. Through the description I see no difference. Also, how long will the little tanks last on a regular buddy on the low setting? Thanks.

It may be as little as a warning sticker or description in the manual that they don't include in the other models. For example, I know in Canada all propane heaters have to have the documentation state that the devices are not to be used indoors. I know that the buddy heater advertises as a great device to warm up the garage/basement/during power outage, so a documentation change regarding that could be the reason for the different models.

Does Mr Heater make this top wire bracket accessory for warming coffee/food tray or is this a home made bracket. Exactly what I am looking for . If anyone knows and could respond I would greatly appreciate it. New to site and appreciate your response!

Making your own modifications. They do not sell anything like this that I have seen.

Completed the igniter install today! Mine was a MH12c. It required a bit of drilling for the piezoelectric probe but was very simple. The test ignition lit on the first try. Thanks for the ideas!!!

Lonewolf, I just purchased the same heater 2 weeks ago. great Idea and will do the same. I am also going to try to see if I can get the low/med/high knob off and take the "preset clicker" out as I need something less then that "low" setting. I used the heater in a 2 man and even cooked on top of it and its still way hot.
