Ribs with brisket or butts

Just curious do any of you mix a long cooking meat like brisket or butts with ribs? This question came up as I was reading the previous post about dry ribs which probaly occurred beacsue of opening the lid too often. But can the same be said for the last hour of smoking ribs as I tend to slather them with sauce every 15 minutes. Is that drying out my other long cooking meats? Do you usually just cook all ribs or all long cooking meats?[p]Howard
