I think we use the same set up to steam our buns. My normal daily lunch spot I use a 1/6 pan and steam 6 at a time. Today I did a Christmas parade and needed to steam more and quicker. The temp was making it a little more difficult to have it steaming in my 1/6 pan. I have a 1/2 size pan directly over a burner. Today I placed a small amount of water in the bottom of the pan and then used a wire pan grate to lift the buns away from the water. I wrap my buns in foil then turn the heat on low and it steamed them very quickly. I had a good day at the parade today. Very much worth going.
We just did our first big event in cold weather (28) degrees, and we were having some problems steaming the buns as fast as we’re usually accustomed too and it was backing things up fast. Im assuming the freezing temperature was the biggest culprit, but wanted to reach out to our Eastcoast friends for some good savy advice. The only thing we did differently this time, was use a huge drip pan with wire racks and rags on the bottom so we could do more volume compared to our typical set up which we typically steam 5 or 6 buns at a time in a full pan with a steamer pan insert.
This is our first year in the Northwest from CA and our first year slinging dogs as well. We have got so much good advice on here before, thought we would try it again.
