Planning on doing some tailgating this weekend and need to take some BBQ with you? Well, you could take your precious smoker to the stadium risk damage or possibly even theft of your precious baby. Or you could cook your BBQ in the comfort of your own home and use this little trick for transporting your BBQ creation. You can easily create a warming box, all you need is an ice chest, heavy-duty aluminum foil and couple of clean towels or newspaper. Here I have a styrofoam cooler from an online steak company, not going to say which one because this box was the best part of the order.
If are using and ice chest and would like to preheat the cooler, heat up 2-4 cups of water in the microwave and then pour it into the cooler and close the lid for 15-20 minutes. Pour out the water, wipe it dry and place your meat in the cooler.

I have some of those coolers too and they work great for thawing out briskets and butts in a controlled environment. I use one for thawing and one for keeping after the cook like yours.
I would like another cooler but I don't want any more steaks from that company.
