    The heater gets really hot and all, but it seems like if I cook the main course I don't have enough eat remaining for the side same As for the hot coffee, am I supposed to pack it ALL in the heater or what?

    For example, I had the chicken salsa one the other day, put the chicken salsa in for 10-15 minutes and it got pretty hot, then I took it out and put the side in with the coffe and it wasn't nearly warm enough to eat

    Put two packets in at once. One on each side of the heater.

    First of all, it shouldn't take 10-15 minutes for an MRE heater to heat chicken salsa. Your chicken should be plenty hot to eat within 6 minutes.

    More importantly, however, is this: where is your ratfuck box? There should be plenty of extra heaters in there because kidhero and I aren't using them. Don't know what a ratfuck box is? It's the box used to keep all the MRE shit that people don't want/need. Don't ever use that Tabasco? Put it in the ratfuck box; someone else will be looking for an extra one.

    Well if you really want to heat everything, put the main course in the heat packet, and then whatever else you want heated stick it in the box on the heater side...too easy
