Propane heaters

Postby Mr. 16 gauge » Thu Nov 16, 2006 11:09 am

I'm looking for a small, portable propane heater for my duck/deer blind.....what I would really like is one that doesnt have that annoying 'hiss' when it is in use. Any suggestions?

Buy the one out of Cabelas it cost $60 and you cant even hear it run. Also it is the square looking one and I wouldnt use it for Deer hunting because the deer will smell the propane gas fumes.

i also have an issue with the HISS of propane. also the fact that in cold weather the 16 oz propane bottles will not empty completely when the pressure drops. i have an old aluminum lunch pail that i drilled holes in the top. it is shaped like a round top barn. i lined the bottom of it with some fiberglas insulation (cause the bottom gets so hot ) and it keeps the sterno can from rattling around during transport. i use those STERNO cans with the wick (like they use to keep food warm at the restaurant buffet tables). actually i don't use the STERNO brand but different brand called SAFE HEAT. i do have to keep a hot dog tongs in the pail to put the lid back on the can when i am done. that baby gets real hot and i have burned holes in too many gloves. this set up does not make any noise and is smaller than a propane heater. also the thing cools off really fast when i am done. none of this is OSHA approved !!! if you want pic's, i can email them to someone that knows how to get them to the forum.

Heaters

here is an old technique we used to use . Worked really well as a hand warmer and to warm smaller areas.

Find yourself an older tobacco can ( metal) put a roll of tiolet tissue inside and completely soak with methyl hydrate put metal lid back on. When hunting, remove the lid and put a match to the tissue, will burn clean and when your done just put lid back on. Toss it in your blind bag or knapsack.

Will burn a long time.Then just refill before each trip. You can have as many as needed.

Probably antiquated today but worked well back "in the day"

same thing on a slightly larger scale. 1 lb coffee can and 1 roll of toilet paper and 1 bottle of rubbing alcohol. Tp fits perfectly in 1lb can and alcohol burns clean and for several hours if the tp is tight in the can.
