Has anyone looked into getting the electric or propane chafers?
I was also curious about this. Has anyone tried using one of these electric chafer heaters?

I use the 6 hour ones (from Sams Club) each week at our Farmers Market. I burn them for 4-5 hours and they work fine (as long as there is no wind)

I throw them away each weekend, and do not mess the little bit of left over fuel.

I am currently looking for a propane chafing table (3 bay) but have not found one yet (reasonable)

Try wrapping foil around your chaffers works great for outdoor events

we wrap the stand with foil and only leave a small area open and we get 6 hrs in wind all good my wife now made some nice chafing dish covers in red blue and black that fit very snug to the base and drap down around the base to the table looks a bit nicer lol

Don't recall the price, but I got a great deal on a 72 pack 2-hr gels at Restaurant Depot last year.

The one's from Sam's will leak even when brand new, you just have to keep them level.

TIP: For those of you that use charcoal chimneys, try using the almost finished cans as fire starters rather than newspaper. They work well and creat a lot less smoke and mess.
