    My bro has a cambro and he says food loses a degree an hour. I have used a maxcold igloo 150 quart cooler as a faux cambro and have had no issues keeping food out of the danger (40 -140) zone. Wen I last pulled a brisket out of the cooler after resting for 3 hours, it was 171 degrees.
    I want a cambro because of the ability to stack pans. It is a bit tricky to stack more than a few pans in a cooler.
    A cambro is definitely on my wish list

    Anybody have any comparisons between the heat retention of a real cambro and a faux cambro, i.e. beer cooler?

    I bought 4 of these pans from Sams several months ago, along with the big cutting boards there. And I got a roll of kind-of-tacky shelf paper on a roll, and I put that under the cutting board to keep is from sliding.

    I have the 2.5 inch deep pans. But the 4 inch ones are a great idea - that will increase the volume carrying capacity in Big Red!

    Well, you still have the same drying-out issue if you pull earlier. I'm still leaning on doing pulled pork. But transportation is now MUCH simpler!

    Winco pans. I got both. I like the deep for pulling, but the smaller ain't bad.

    Well add it to my list I guess! I have been taking butts with me and pulling on location, looks like you are saying it is fine to pull it first.

    Paul did you get the pans there also? If so did you get the 2 1/2 or 4" deep and was the measurement of the pan 12 3/4 x 20 3/4

    The hotel pans make things way faster to put meat in and take out. I didn't have to wrap anything, so I unloaded the ribs from the smoker, put in the pans and into the Cambro. Before, i would peal off foil, wrap each rack of ribs and place into the beer cooler. That took quite a bit longer.

    Last week, I was also rushed, and put 4 butts into the black top opening one, and the meat was 210 degrees and I should not have sealed it up. I did and the meat kept the heat so well it kept cooking and got more mushy. I had huge leftovers and shared, and ate some last night when one of the families had a grad party - it still tasted great, even after freezing and thawing! #BBQRocks

    It is HUGE! Three full size hotel pans slide in and out, with 2-3 inches inbetween to stack the meat up a bit!

    That's a 12x20? Must be like a clown car because the pics on that site look way smaller than your pics. 196 is not bad at all...

    Oh and the food looks amazing.

    Dude, we could build that brick (or pipe) stickburner with a pellet cooker backup together!
