Ok, I need to find a way to warm up a bucket of honey. I cannot bring in an old cooler or chest freezer because we do not have room. So.....

option 1: buy one of the heat belts that fit a 5 gallon bucket

option 2: I can take some old supers and stack them up. Add a lid and hang a light bulb inside to heat the bucket. Not sure if it would work but sounds good.

Any other options? Anyone have any advice?

Your idea will work. It'll get pretty warm in there, use the smallest wattage bulb you can get.

I use a small fridge for one bucket-these can be found at thrift and goodwill -remove the ice tray and compresor and shuch-use a thermostat and 60 watt light bulb-took a while to find the small fridge but i can tell you it is the best way to do one bucket

Put it in your car with the windows up and the car in full sun on a warm day.
