Vending - Keeping food looking fresh
 
For those of you that vend, how do you keep your BBQ looking fresh and not all dried out?

I use a table top steam table, and seems like I am constantly having to mix my pulled pork so it doesn't look "dried out." I always keep the steam table lid on it when not serving customers, and if it gets looking too dried, I give a splash of apple juice.

What do you do to keep your BBQ always looking and tasting its best?

Do not pre pull your pork, hold it whole and pull as needed.

Do you keep it on the smoker or in a cooler when not pulling?

I hold them whole in my FEC 500. Same thing I used to do in my offset. I pull as I serve.

Don't have all your food done at once. We pride ourselves on serving food that wasn't cooked 24 hours ago and reheated, we stagger our cook times so that every hour or two we are breaking down shoulders to refill the service line.
