Ribs and Pizza for dinner

I'm planning on doing ribs and pizza this weekend..I know its only Monday..and need confirmation on my plans. I like to cook the ribs low and slow, 4 hours or more like Gfw and others so obviously they will go on first. Can I simply wrap them in foil and place them in an oven or cooler when done while I stoke the BGE up to 550-600 for a couple of pies? I'm using a dry rub that gets crusty so I hope it doesnt get sooggy in the foil.[p]Of course I'd love to tell my wife that the eggsperts on this forum mandated that I purchase a second egg to make it easier. Whaddaya think gang?

    Do the ribs the way you like and then wrap in foil to hold the heat in. They will not be in there that long as it only takes a few minutes to get the EGG up to temp for pizza and about 7-9 minutes to do a pizza.

    The foil would not be a great option if you want crusty crust. The pies don't take too long if they are prepared.[p]Putting the ribs on a plate, in a just warm oven. Maybe eat some while you cook the pizzas!![p]Have fun.

    Stuart,[p]Also be ready to add some new lump when you make the switch from lo & slo to pizza temps if you didn't have enough to start with, even doing a single pie will use a lot of fuel to cook, so fill `er up.[p]Tim
