What is an efficient way to keep chili hot at a tailgate-type party? What is a good way to transport it so it stays hot without buying fancy equipment? Once it is there, how do you keep it hot for several hours? Thank you for reading this and for any suggestions! :)
How do I keep chili hot for a tailgate?

Bring a propane grill, and set the vat on top to keep at a low simmer. You could transport it hot with the vat wrapped in towels inside a cooler if it will fit. Stuff in blankets to fill all the empty space. Not sure how long it will stay at a safe temp. So if you have far to go before you can set up and get it back on the fire, you might be better off cooking it there. I would cook it there myself if it's an all day kind of party.
The camp cooler works okay, but once you start getting in and out of it, that chili will get cold fast.
These are butane powered, and less than 20 dollars. On low heat, you get about 3 hours per cannister.
The make double ones too. Whats great about these is instant heat, instant off, like a gas range, so
if you need to you can just heat it all back up.
