Default Help With Today's Cook

Cooking ribs for about 5 hours with the 2-2-1 method and some homeade jamican jerk chicken breasts, recipe courtesy of you guys.

I have one grill.

Question is do I cook the ribs then once done cook the chicken. Which means by the time I add more charcoal, let the coals turn and cook the chicken about 8 mins each side about an hour will have passed since the ribs were done. If I do this, do I just bring the ribs inside and let them cool, then cut later when the chicken is done?

Or

Do I take the ribs off after the 4th hour while still in foil. Throw a bunch of charcoal on and light it for my chicken. Once the coals turn put the ribs back on for there last hour and put the chicken on with them for the last 16 mins of that hour? With this method the ribs would have to sit for about 30 mins in foil while the coals turn and the lighter fluid burns off. Im assuming they would still stay damn near cooking temp being in foil and all.

I think either way I will be fine, but with the 1st method I dont wanna serve room temp ribs and I dont want to cover them and let the bark get mushy either. Let me hear what you guys would do.

What I do, which works for me anyway, is I throw the chicken on near the end of the rib cook then after a short 20 min +/-smoke, pull the ribs and foil them then place in a cooler. Then crank up the heat to finish the chicken...

When your ribs are done (and they are done when they are done, which may not be 5 hours) wrap them in foil, then in a heavy towel, the toss them kn a warm, dry cooler while you cook your chicken.
If you want to firm up the bark, after the chicken is done, toss them back on the grill (out of the foil) for a few minutes.
When you are cooking on one cooker you have to be a little more creative. Good luck!
