THat is pretty much my plan. The event is only 10 mniutes from where I will be smoking the ribs so I plan to cook the ribs, foil, put in a preheated cooler with some towels and then off I go to set up. I don't imagine that they will be in the cooler for longer than a hour. I think that everything will turn out OK. Thanks for the advice.

Please do not show up to a vending or catering event with coolers and towels (it looks unprofessional). Please rent or buy a Cambro/Carlise hot box!

Yes, don't pull the ribs out of a cooler with stained towels on the line...if you go that route, make sure you're slicing elsewhere.

I've done nothing but on-site cooks, but people keep asking for catered delivery.

Thank you for your comment, add a Cambro carrier to my spring shopping list.

Cook ribs.
Sauce ribs.
Slice into half pans and cover with foil.
Immediately deliver to event and set into chafing pans.
Collect money and leave, looking very professional.

We do it the way Oklahoma Joe's does, saran and alto sham. If you are charging for cooking on site I would cook to almost done then finish on smoker at the event. If not smoking at event then it is easy, finish at kitchen, deliver and serve. Buy, borrow or rent a Cambro.

Why don't you do everything you are gonna do but cut the ribs into bones as the people come up? I think the ribs will be juicy and you get to b.s. with people. 50 people is not a lot to do this with.

Check out craigslist.org in your area and the surrounding area. I just found and bought two Cambro UPC400's for $240 and that included 6 s/s pans of various depths. Seller was a personal chef and they were in like new condition.
