How Do You Keep Appetizers Warm?

We are having an appetizer and drinks party tomorrow night and I would like to have some of the appetizers ready before our guests arrive.  Will MOINK balls, jalapeno poppers, armadillo eggs, and sea turtle eggs survive time in party city disposable chafing dishes?  I'm making fiery shrimp diablo on bamboo sticks and will drop those on as people go through them.  Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

    If you have an oval slow cooker, set it on low. You can also use the chafing dish and it should hold up fine. You can also rent heavy duty chafing dishes. They should have the sterno holders and a pan inside a well that holds hot water. Sam's Club also has the restaurant quality chafing dishes usually.

  • I know it's sacrilegious for me to even mention this on here. . . ;) . . .  but I usually keep things warm in a 200F oven (aka the big clock in the kitchen).

    Yep, I use the big clock too. Serve drinks and after a few no one will notice if they are hot or not! ;;)

  • Chafing dishes and sterno. You can use it indoors or out and not have to worry about plugging it in. You can get a wire rack and aluminum foil pan real cheap but save your money and step up to the entry level stainless steel for about 30 bucks.
