I agree on the Cambros but not just for the hot stuff... I have a large Igloo that I use for transportation of the meat but once it's trimmed and or seasoned it goes into a pre-cooled (large hotel pan of ice for 20-30 minutes) cambro on a sheet pan. This works out best for us. In fact, we have two of them stacked and keep the top one pre-heated and the bottom one chilled. Once all the meat is out of the igloo (the meat is cryo-sucked before it goes in so there is no cross contamination) our boxes are made up and stored in there...
We also bring two Maverick ET-73's at the comps. One to use and one for a back up. Excuse the pun but we almost got burned when we broke one....
As for the canopy, we picked up a 'King Canopy' at Costco that we really like. It came with four walls that not only keep the heat in (it gets chilly here) but also gives us some privacy.
