Appetizers in advance? Travel with Smoked Shotgun Shells? Help

Hey everyone! Looking for some inspiration or guidance for this amazing group. Headed to a friend gathering this weekend and they asked if everyone could bring an appetizer or dessert for a potluck type of thing. I've been meaning to try my hand at the shotgun shells everyone seems to be talking about these days and am wondering if you think those will travel well if I make them the morning of? 

We're supposed to leave at 10am and it takes about 45min-hour from our house. Factor in people mingling in the beginning and im guessing the food will sit for another 45min to an hour on top of that. So from the time I make the food, transport it, and people start eating it, I'm guessing it'll be 2.5 hours total (gotta help the wife get the kids ready so won't be able to make it and leave right after it's done).

Do you think room temp shotgun shells that have been sitting for over two hours is a good idea? I'm going to make a bacon and onion dip with chips for one of the apps (I can do that the night before), but would like to bring something from the egg that doesn't involve me getting up at 4 or 5am to smoke it and transport it and have it be super messy for people to eat. I'm thinking something with a one hour-ish cook time. 

Any inspiration or advice would be greatly appreciated! Thank you!
