keeping hot dogs warm without electricity?

Any proven ideas on how to keep a large amount of hot dogs warm without electricity ? I plan on boiling them, could I then put them in buns, wrap in foil and cover in a pan? I dont want them to get warm, or give my guests food poisening from them sitting out.

YOu could bake some bricks and  put them under some foil and wrap the hotdogs in foil...then do the buns when you get there....Put the foil covered bricks in a cake pan then the hotdogs on top of them....

could you put them in a crock pot with water get them cooked and hot then take them to the party in the crock pot just as they are? They'd stay warm then

Also walmart sells the tin containers with the fire that goes under them, buffet style

well you are in luck, because hot dogs have so much stuff in them that they can set out for awhile...

If you boil t95hem i would advise you keep them in a big metal pot wrapped in foil, inmy area we have people who sell corn, and they are always hot and fresh, and they walk around with carts

Do you have a roaster oven?
If you do, heat the hotdogs make sure they are dry, bun and foil them.
Make sure the roaster oven is hot, put them in there, put on the lid, with the oven plugged in until you go to leave. Wrap it in towels. We did this when we sold them for a fundraiser and every shake they tasted fine.

One time we also used an ice chest to keep them warm.

That's exactly what I was thinking when I read this!

They sell the tins in the party supply aisle near the wedding supplies.
