Been asked to bring some smoked foods to a family gathering an hour away from home. I was asked to bring a smoked turkey breast and shrimp smoked in butter and garlic. The turkey breast I can foil, towel, and cooler. OK with the turkey breast. Trying to figure out how to keep the shrimp warm.

Shrimp is gonna be tough. Maybe a short cold smoke then actually cook them when you get to your destination. They don't take long

Wrap the shrimp in separate foil packs, place them along side the wrapped Turkey, then cover with the towel.

I agree with Ryan...I would Cold Smoke the Shrimp an hour, keep cold and poach in the Garlic Butter at your destination. There is NO WAY to hold shrimp warm and at peak quality! I catered for several years and we never cooked shrimp ahead to be served hot. No need to as they cook fast...JJ
