So a friend went out and bought me as a suprise a UPCS400 Cambro with the wheels. I have always been a wrap in a towel and put in a cooler guy, so the question when you use the Cambro di I still need to wrap the meat in a towel?

Thanks.

nope..should be able to drop it in a hotel pan and slide it in. May want foil it if it isn't already.

I don't use a towel in my Cambro. After the meat has rested I cover it back with foil and in to the Cambro it goes. I also have pans in my Cambro so the meat sits in a pan.

Just be sure to rest it a bit before it goes in as mentioned, else it might continue to steam

That's a great freind you have there! Guessing he might want a little que in exchange?

He will get all the leftovers he wants for a while.

i think you meant "vent it", yes?

That too. I have a carlisle, not a cambro, so we just leave a little gap at the top to let the steam escape. Still stays plenty hot. But I usually let butts or brisket rest 10 or 15 mins before putting in the Carlisle. YMMV

Same here. I rest for 10 to 15 minutes and I open the vent on my Cambro so that it doesn't soften the bark as much.

i see, yeah i suppose the vented insulated carriers would work a little differently in that regard.

good info. :thumb:
