Here's my problem, I need to cook ribs and sides the same day all will be smoked. The ribs will take up all my smokers surface and the side will take two hours. I'm thinking of smoking the ribs the day before , should I cook the ribs till after the foil stage and then pick up the following day and then rewrap them till after the sides are done? or cook them 100% and just reheat after I finish the sides?
Ribs not enough time

About a month ago I had somewhat the same problem. I had 3 racks of ribs to smoke.......and 2 dozen chicken 1/4's to do as well. I smoked the ribs for 2.5 hours at 250*......foiled them, and finished them in the oven at 225*. Once I had pulled the ribs from the smoker, I was able to raise the smoker temp to 325* to do the chicken.
