Default Holding Ribs help

Iíve been asked to cook a party for a co-worker. I am not a caterer and this is simply a favor for a friend. The amount of people is 150. The menu is ribs, tri tip and 3 sides. I cook on a Lang 84.

My question is, although I have cooked for large groups before, Iíve had access to additional cookers. This time I only have the Lang 84. Iím not sure I can fit all the ribs and tri tip into the Lang 84, to cook all at the same time.

Can someone who has experience in catering or cooking large quantities, please advise me if itís possible and desirable, to hold ribs and/or the tri tip until the other gets done and if so, whatís the best method to do so. Someone suggested putting the ribs into a cooler, however Iíve never done this before and Im not sure if this degrades the ribs flavor or texture.

Iíd prefer to hold the ribs, since the tri tip is a quick cook.
Thank you for your time, guidance and expertise.
