Superbowl Sunday Ribfest - transferring to friends house

Another Egghead and i are both making ribs for a rib off and we both are transferring the meat after we cook at home. 
Suggestions, on how to keep the ribs both hot and not making them mushy or anything like that while we transfer them?
My thought is finish totally at home. Wrap in foil each one, wrap in towel and then cooler to transfer....then cut at my buddies when ready to eat
Thoughts suggestions??
thanks fellow eggheads

    The only fault I see in your plan is that you are not stopping by my place to drop a rack off .

    I am midtown so it will work out great for you

    Considering the length of time they will be in foil and wrapped you might want to pull them off the egg 4 or 5 degrees below normal doneness as they will continue to cook in the wrapped stage. Alter that 4 or 5 degrees by the amount of time from cooking to consuming. Good luck in the rib-off! Make us eggers proud!

    Your plan sounds sound.  Good luck!

    btw, I don't think @pantsypants office is opened on Sunday, I'll safe keep his rack, just hurl it (+ mine) over the green fence:

    @RRP - you got me wondering ... for starter I cook ribs by feel rather than by temp ... also, unlike pork butts, I would think ribs don't have the heat mass to overcook significantly when foiled.

    I hear you, but ribs are bones and bones retain heat plus the bones are uniformly spread through the rack and typically there is more bone mass than meat mass - but who knows...

    probably against the rules but a quick reheat without the foil on a med/hot gasser would firm them back upa little. thats how ive seen it done ate bbq festivals. hot fire, watery sauce baste and move flip quickly
