At comps, I cook overnight, because I have everything timed to come off at certain points of time during the comp. For instance:
I start my butts and brisky cookers at 10:15p, place briskys and butts on at 11p, I go to sleep at midnight, up at 5am. I get 5 hours shut eye this way and I get my big meats done around 9 am, coolered and I can focus more on ribs and chicken.
When I cater, I cook hot and fast.
