I ve been thinking about buying a buddy Jr but cooking is a disadvantage to my Mr Heater Cooker. Thats the main reason I still don't have one.

yes my single buddy heater will boil water. I use a small kettle after burning my lip on an enameled tin cup. Now it's heat the water pour into cup

I been looking for a grate, might have to make one at work. I bent a coat hanger around the front of my Buddy and I cook sausage type things on it. A hot meal on the ice does make it a LOT easier to stay out there.
Every plastics manufacturer claims plastics outfish livebait. So now I use livebait just for the increased challenge.

I used mine for the first time today cooking dogs.  Just put some heavy foil on the top and flipped dogs a bunch of times.

While fishing and looking at them cooking, I was coming up with some ideas for some type of rotisserie (manual turned) that I can mount on the front for at least doing two dogs at once, maybe four if it is not too complex.

Will post pics if I come up with something.

Went to Fleet Farm, they had the grill supplies on sale. (I wonder why?)

Anyway,  I bought one of those metal baskets that you put on your grill for $6.

Used it today for heating some smoked pork loin.


Wow,  a hot meal sure makes a difference out on the ice.

I've been cooking on mine for years now.




Bought an aluminum mesh screen at HD for paint rolling in a bucket and fastened it on. Just keep the foil pans forward so the handle won't melt.

If I agreed with you we would both be wrong!

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?

A Mr. Buddy can be laid on its back. Been doing it for years.

Two nice grills,I'm not the cleaver,all my Sammie's are foil wrapped and laid on top,and have a little fry pan that I slip the handle under the buddy handle,I like your ideas better.

The Company must have heard it was being used like that.

They shut off now when you tip 'em.

Some people have disabled the switch that shuts the fuel off when they are tipped.

Did you have your doubts??   ;)


I ended up doing something a little different (better?) than I originally intended. 

Took about an hour this afternoon, even with my half assed welding skills.  Don't look too close  LOL!    I used 2 1/2 " angle brackets and 1/8" or so steel rod.  A few bends and a few tack welds and voila.  This is better than my original idea I think because they are individual pieces than can be easily stored when not used.  I definitely wanted something easily removable for shanty packing reasons.  On the skewer, the dogs can easily be turned by hand.

wnybassman -- Are you the same guy from NYBass? That is so simple, yet so awesome. I'm going to have to look into getting some of those done for me. I haven't a clue as to how to weld. Another suggestion would have to be another set that sit horizontally, then you can set enough up to where you can set things ontop of the bars.

I heat up cans of soup with nothing more than my ice scooper, I prop the scoop against the buddy with the handle down in the snow and put my can of soup (I like Progresso Clam Chowder) on the scoop bottom in against the Buddy grills and cook away. Make sure you use a metal scoop ;D

We had this happen this fall while deerhunting from our stand .I put two foil-wrapped corned beef sandwiches on the Buddy heater....after awhile we smelled melting plastic . The foil redirects the heat onto the handle . No damage done, because we quickly removed the foil packs and redistributed them .
A small grill jammed under the handle works much better....but don't forget to leave an air space  around the handle.

I just made the hotdog cookers without any welding.  Picked up a pack of Colemen cooking forks.  bent the handle end to hang on the grate and bent a 180 so the hotdogs will be right in front.  (i'll post pics later).  Did it all for $4.00.
