Franklin BBQ - how to keep warm for dinner?

Allison L. | Sep 21, 2012 06:29 AM

Friends and I have decided to pre-order from Franklin and skip the line (if ordering 5 lbs. or more of meat, you can pre-order but need to do so 2 weeks ahead). Skipping the line means picking up the order at 10:15, but we want to eat at 5-ish. I'm the designated picker upper - and I don't want to ruin anything! Putting it in the fridge seems like the wrong thing to do because by the time it cools down it's time to heat it up again. The oven will surely dry it out, even at a low temp. My best idea so far is to wrap in a towel and put it in a cooler to keep warm, then just before serving pop it in the oven for 5 minutes to re-melt the fat.

Anyone have experience with this? I'd love some advice.
