1. Use a heavy plate, heat up the plate first.

2. Use large block of Himalayan salt and have the salt block heated.

3. Infrared heat lamp.

4. Electric hot plate

5. Table top butane stove

If the oven isn't being used I like to cover with foil and place in there out the way of any draughts. Depends on the meat though and how much. A steak or piece of chicken might need a warm plate as well. A platter of BBQ will keep itself warm under foil.

Restaurants must have those temp. controls, in question is a lot of food and a lot of guests which must be served with specific food. Good tips by the way, i was wondering such a question for keeping meat warm.

I took one of the suggestions Dcarch mentioned for a few woodcock I cooked yesterday. While they roasted in a 300F oven, I had a stainless steel plate warming on the bottom rack. Once they finished, I removed both pans from the oven, and let the birds rest on a rack that was not pre-heated (just left above the stove). After carving the birds, I put the breasts and legs on the warmed plate, skin side down, tented loosely with tin foil, and let it sit on top of a convection oven that was pre-heated to 200F (to warm the plates) while I made the sauce. It worked out very well.
