Double wrap in foil to keep the juices in.
Then wrap with towels a place in the cooler.
I like to let it rest a minimum of 2-3 hrs and longer. You can let it rest 5-6 hrs and it still be very warm.
When you place it in the cooler use more towels (if needed) to fill up any empty space. That will help retain heat better.
You can do ribs this way, But remember they will continue to cook and the temp will rise a little.
If they were tender when placed in the cooler they will be falling off the bone when you remove them.
