If you're a new barbecue cook or new to bbq contests, here are a few BBQ tips to shorten your learning curve. When I was starting these tips were shared with me and I share them with new cooks every chance I get.

How to keep BBQ hot if you're not quite ready to eat it…use an ice chest/ice cooler. Put some hot water in an empty ice chest, close the lid and let it set for 3 or 4 minutes. Drain the hot water and you've got yourself a portable BBQ warmer. We've kept pork butts warm this way for 6 …

If you have a portable generator…a heating pad in a large zip top bag inside a cooler works great

Another idea is to take a deep hotel pan with a lid, put dry beans or pebbles in the bottom and set in the smoker to warm (if your smoker has a flat spot you could just set it on top.) Put a cooling rack on top of this then wrap your meat in foil and place on top of the rack. Cover with lid, use a probe thermometer to monitor the temp in the warmer. Once internal temp is around 140 take off heat source.  This should keep your meat nice and cozy…if it get too cool just put back on top of the heat source
