Does your bark suffer sitting in foil that long?

Thanks, maybe we'll try that next time. I haven't had the condensation issues, but an ounce of prevention......

Not really. I don't want my bark crunchy.

I just got a Cambro S-series 400. I like the fact that there is not a gasket to tear or clean around. A single 400 was big enough for us, but we would have probably needed two 300's. I use 2 1/2" deep pans which work well with the 1 1/2" support spacing and are deep enough for foiled pork or brisket. It also has a single latch and no handles protruding from the top.

I struggled all last year with coolers and bought a Cambro this past December. We used it in our first comp this past weekend and it worked like a dream.

I tested it last month - one hotel pan of boiling hot water and the cambro stayed at 150 degrees for over 3 hours. It might have gone longer but I started drinking beer.

For those who like good bark does anyone find that it suffers inside the cambro?

The cambro will create a hot steamy enviroment, so if you're looking for a dry enviroment to hold in, a cambro might not be the ticket... although most of them do have a vent you can open.. that will decrease the holding efficiency though.
Bottom line is if it's wrapped in foil, the bark will suffer regardless of where you hold it.

It's a humid environment, but my big problem is worrying about being done on time, so I have a tendency of pullin meat at 7am, ill give up bark to still have hot turn ins

I just found two of these on CL for $50 each. I've set up to get them this weekend as we're doing our first competition next month.

Thanks for all the input!

Search Craigslist. We got a Cambro 400 for $70 from a restaurant that was going out of business.

EDIT: J&B, you posted right before me! Great job on the CL find. That's where we got ours!
