Any Tips on Packing Picnic Coolers?

When transporting food to another location, keep it cold to prevent growth of harmful bacteria. Use an insulated cooler with enough ice packs to keep the food at 40 degrees F. or below. Pack food right from the refrigerator into the cooler immediately before leaving home.

Keep coolers shaded and out of the direct sun. Avoid opening and closing the cooler often. Pack beverages in a separate cooler from perishables. Keep meat and poultry in the cooler until ready to use, and remove it immediately before placing on the grill.
