I purchased a couple racks of ribs and before I started I just wanted to know if prepping the ribs, taking out of the package and cleaning, the night before would be good or bad or if it would do anything to the meat like dry it out and what not? I won't be applying rub until the morning and smoking them until around noon. Just wanted to clean and prep tonight. Thoughts, opinions, or advice would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.
Prepping baby back ribs the night before. Good or bad?

I have marinated many ribs, removed the silver skin membrane, then marinaded them for 24 to 36 hours, took them out the day of the smoke, rinsed, dried them off with paper to
¼ C Olive oil
1 Tsp Kosher Salt
½ Tsp Soy Sauce
Juice of one Lime or Lemon
¼ C Cider Vinegar
2 C Apple Juice
Mix it all together, pour over ribs, marinate for 24 to 36 hours
2 ½ cups Brown sugar
1 TBSP Dijon Mustard
1 Tbsp Balsamic Vinegar
1 tbsp cinnamon
Take ribs out of marinade, rinse off and dry, apply Honey, rub it all over, then apply rub. Wrap tightly in Plastic wrap, then place in fridge, smoke the next day.
