cooking with mr.buddy heater
« on: Jan 11, 2010, 10:51 PM »
I've wanted a way to heat up a cold sandwich or drink with my Mr. Buddy heater and tonight I think I found away. $4 dollars for a flat spit basket in the grilling section of local home improvement store.





UPDATE DECEMBER 29, 2011
Using aluminum foil to contain drips while cooking with your Mr. Buddy Heater is a good idea.  :)
Letting the aluminum foil come in contact with the plastic handle is a bad idea.  :(
I now have a slightly modified/melted handle and am headed back to the R&D department for improvement.

Pretty sweet man! I was hoping for something like this; as I was out yesterday and had to resort to just laying my grilled cheese sandwich right on the red part up there. Got a bit of melted cheese on the front grate. Doh!

I thought the grill approach might keep everything a little cleaner. Probably still use foil to contain any drips.

i have the big buddy heater, and i just lay the dogs right across the top two grates...  it is a little different from the regular buddy.  Have also made my own grate from coat hangers for the coffee pot.

Definitely, plus less to carry along. The only time I consider bringing my Coleman propane stove or propane grill is when I'm bringing a larger group of unexperienced fishermen/women, and I don't plan on getting much of it(fishing) done myself. So I can hop between cooking and catering to tangled lines, baiting hooks, and taking fish off.

Here's a question for you guys. Can a Buddy heater be laid on it's back? So that the grill is facing up? Or will this shut off the grill?

It will shutoff. I've heard of guys overiding the safety feature but I wouldn't post how to do it if I knew.

Yeah, I thought that would be cool. But modding to override a safety feature sounds a little sketchy.

This is how I'm going to do it. ;D  I have bought some small aluminum pans and wedged them between the handled and front grill they did work but I would like a more level surface. :tipup:

Wait, coffee pot, this sounds interesting does it get hot enough to brew coffee? Cause that would be aaawwwsome. I bring a thermos out but it gets cold after a bit, I guess I could bring a tin cup and set it on it to warm it up by the cup though. Man this alone will make me stay on the ice longer.  :)

I've been using small aluminum foil pans to reheat precooked meals on my Buddy. That addition to your Buddy would be handy for larger tins and flat area for grilled sandwiches, great idea!

good idea, just make sure that when you buy the "metal" coffee cup that it is not aluminum.

I have seen stainless steel pans / mugs in the camping area at Gander Mountain and Walmart.

Hope this helps,

Ha!  That's fantastic!! I was out the other day trying to warm up some food and thought that I need to start looking for something...the little spit grill is perfect :)
I was thinking of a pie plate or some tinfoil to catch drips...would this block heat ultimately I wonder?  Guess it would help if the food wasn't too messy.

That feature is annoying and over sensitive. Mines going to get modified, you bump it and it goes out.

   Not only will it heat it up but it will boil a small pot, I made a similar mod to mine last year and always have cup o soup in my sled

Are we talking a single or double Buddy?
