Traveling with macque choux
My SO's boss invited us to a block party BBQ tomorrow and we wanted to bring a side dish. Decided on macque choux because it's easy and delicious, and most people up here have probably never heard of it

I was going to prepare it later this afternoon, then put into a pan and reheat tomorrow right before we leave.

The problem is, we've got about an hour drive and I know it won't be hot anymore by the time we get there. Do y'all think it will taste okay if it's only room temp?

Yes. But can you heat it and store in an ice nest?

We always put it in a crockpot and reheat upon arrival.

Well, we were going to use the ice chest for beer, but I bet we have a spare guy lying around somewhere that we can use for the corn.

Reheating on site isn't really an option, so as long as it's not ice cold upon arrival I'll feel okay about it. I've just only ever had it warm, so I'm not sure whether or not it will hold up. Plus, it's in the 50s tomorrow so it won't stay warm long, anyway.

Put it warm in an ice chest, with a beach towel, and it’ll stay warm.

An insulated food bag like they sell at Sam's for your frozen or cold products would also work.

Don't know how much you're making but a large thermos or several would work great. Then, simply transfer it all to your casserole dish upon arrival.

Insulated casserole carriers work really well, also. Most come with one of those gel bags that can be heated in the microwave and put under the casserole to keep the heat going. You can find them at places like Target, Sam's, Walmart, Bed, Bath and Beyond etc...

It will be fine at room temp.
