Default Propane Heater at Comps?

Beyond Booze, what do you use to keep warm at comps.
Does anyone use Propane Heaters like the attached.
Will these work? Is there something better? I usually set up two EZ Up tents with walls on one.

Thanks in advance for your comments and suggestions.

We just bought one of the Mr heater propane heaters, and while it won't cook you out of the tent, it definitely keeps the chill off. We first used at a comp in November when it was about 35-40 outside. With the ez up buttoned up, it was nice and toasty. Plus, it ran all night and the next day on a single tank.

We have used one too, with reasonable results. Our main strategy is to cook in warmer weather.

We use one like the one pictured on the left and in below freezing temps it kept us warm in side an easy up with walls enough so that we had to back up a couple times from it

Like the first one. I think it's the big buddy. We also bought a converter kit to hook it up to a big propane tank instead of the small ones.
