First post and question (turkey breast and Prime Rib for xmas)

Hello All, greetings from south of the border. I’m a proud owner of a x-large and small BGE. I got them in Octuber but Ive been lurking the forum for much longer. I thank you all for all your great advise and stories! I’m enjoying every cook, the great ones and the bad ones. So far: Steaks, Ribs, Pizza, and Chicken. Hopefully this vacation I’ll have the time to do a brisquet and a pork butt. Of course, must of the times a nice cigar for dessert!


So here is my question: For Christmas I’m planning on cooking a Boneless Turkey Breast and a Prime Rib, indirect, around 350 f.  The problem is that I have to finish cooking around 7 pm and we will have dinner at least 3 to 4 hours later at my Mother’s house.


How do you recommend to re-heat? Should I pull out both the turkey and the Prime Rib maybe 20 degrees before the desired temps (160 and 130) and finish them while re heating? 


All comments are more than welcome.

    Man, sorry you haven't had any responses yet. That's kinda unusual. Can't help with the prime rib, but on the turkey, you can take it to 160, wrap in HD foil and put in a cooler with some towels. Should stay hot for a good 4 hours. Same with prime rib, but I don't know what temp to tell you to pull it at.

    Thanks Griffin.
    Nola did respond! (I posted twice, rookie mistake)

    My main concern was that maybe by re heating I could overcook them. 
    I will cook them to desired temp, FTC and if needed re heat in conventional oven at 170.
    I'll send pics.
