So if I can get it pulled, panned and chilled the night before, transport it on ice and then heat up pan by pan at the event, I'd be good right? Doe not seem any different than any small time function one might do like a pot luck dinner. Just bigger.
Seeems like if I get everything cooked up it will cool off very fast while it's being pulled into the pans and then cool of faster in that form in the Frigerator. Should be able to get to a cool temp pretty fast. This would see to me to be the safest way to handle everything. Plus having it all pulled before hand would really help with the socializing aspects.
