Help!! My baby backs are ready 2 hours before dinner!! How do I keep them from drying out?

My egg temp stayed too high so the baby backs are done 2 hours before the crowd comes for dinner.
How do I keep them from over cooking or drying out?
They're still in foil, but I don't want to remove them yet.
I think I should do the following, but I'd like some advice:

Take them off the BGE, remove from foil, put on a platter in a cold oven, then half an hour before dinner, put them on the BGE, slather with sauce, etc?
Or, what??

HELP!!

Thanks.

    I would keep them wrapped in the foil and put them in a cooler with lots of towels (fill the void space) and then serve when ready-I have used this method for football tailgates many times-always works!  YMMV-

    Thanks.
    They're headed to the cooler with towels. Like brisket.

    Thanks for the advice, everyone. The ribs were a huge hit.
    I did put them back on the BGE for half an hour when everyone came, sauced them, meat side up, and they were amazing.
