Hot holding
For events and such, how do you guys hot hold something like ABTs? Right now, I grill or fry everything to order or have a very short hold time under heat lamps during busy times. I would like to do a bacon wrapped jalapeno appetizer or maybe a meatball type item on a stick, but I am unsure how to hold them safely for a high volume setting.

Cambro and an Alto Shaam I picked up at Auction.

Where power is easily available, I'd go with heated cabinets like the alto sham. Easy to keep temp and move food around. Vending or anyplace without power, a propane steam table is best. Remember that both will continue to cook the food if you leave it too long.

I keep meat in the Cambro and carefully portion it out to the steam table.

Sterno or electric hot boxes work well as do cambros.

Thanks. I was leaning towards an alto sham. Might not be a bad idea to set aside a place in the trailer for a cambro box, as well fro bigger events.
