Just a WAG, but I'm betting that if you got your hands on some insulation and cut it to fit a pan, and then wrapped it in plastic wrap to could place it above the uppermost pan of meat and reduce the volume of the cambro and retain the heat longer. I've never tried it, but it seems to make sense after my first cup of coffee this morning.
Edit: or, as I think about having a second cup.... place your food at the top of the cambro, and the insulation under the last pan of food. Since heat rises, the insulation should do an even better job if it's placed below the source of heat.
