you would need to clarify a few things first.

1) How far in advance are you cooking the birds? Typically I try to have the chix finished just before I have to leave for the event to prevent them from drying out and having to quickly get them back up to temp...

2) How long will it take for you to get to the event?

3) How are you transporting the food? If using a Cambro pan carrier, the temp will hold for up to 4 hours (as long as you prep the carrier first). Also plastic wrap over the pan followed by foil will keep the heat in therefor "steaming" it, only issue is if they are wrapped like that for too long you will risk too much condensation in the pan.

4) Are you saucing before you leave or at the event?

At the very least you can put the pans in insulated coolers, even if you have to put them in half pans to fit. All it takes is a little traffic, and then you risk cooling with just exposed pans. There are often cheap cambro hot boxes on craigs.

We have transported bird at this distance.
Take them off the smoker, place in foil pans right away, cover the foil pan with a foil pan cover. Place in a insulated cooler, stack pans if possible, cover up with towels, and they will stay hot for your serving for a couple hours.

This is how I would do it...

Ok, i'll be the party pooper, in pa what your saying requires a catering license, and a certified kitchen.
Anyway...
I think people covered the transport, but chafing dishes are not for reheating. they keep food warm.

Hope your event goes well.
