Not looking to change the thread but I'm in the sunshine state, problem is it's the time of the year we get the liquid sunshine in the afternoon...I plan to do 6 slabs of babybacks and 2 birds..1 beer can..1 not.. Have several couples coming over to have some good Q and watch the NASCAR race.. PLAN A: Cook early, ribs 2-2-1, birds, 4 or 5 to 170. Now is to place in oven at 170 to keep warm. How long can I do this without them drying out. Plan to wrap both in foil before going into the oven. Never tried this before.....can it work???? Plan B: ????? This is where I'm depending on the Guru's to educate me.
