How long can I hold Apps

Having some people over this weekend and cooking some ribs. I want to make some tasty apps to serve before hand. If I cook wings, ABT's, Turtle eggs before I start the ribs can I keep them warm in the oven for a couple of hours. I know I need another egg but won't happen in time. I could also cook on my second grid above the ribs but didn't want other tastes dripping on my ribs.  Any help would be appreciated!

    You can put them in aluminum serving trays with foil on top in a 200 degree oven or, if your oven has a warming feature use that. I recommend the oven itself instead of a warming drawer; the oven is fully insulated and will warm up and shut off to maintain temp. The drawer is not insulated so it just blows hot air the whole time.

    Thanks Egg wonder how long they will hold without drying out?

    Sorry...missed the list in the op.

    The only thing I'd be concerned about would be the bacon getting soggy. If you have the time...cook a few and try it out. I've ftc'ed apps but not for hours. Maybe in a warm oven loosely covered so they don't steam. Let us know.

    A couple of weeks ago, I was forced to serve ABTs at room temp. I didn't cover until cool, so they weren't too soggy. Though a little better warm, they were fine and greatly appreciated.
