    Seasoned a rack of baby back ribs this morning to smoke this afternoon (dry rub).  A friend has an emergency, and I don't think I'm going to be able to be home to cook them today.  Can I cook them tomorrow, or will I have to get rid of them?

    They'll probably be better tomorrow anyway.

    I used to prerub my ribs a day or two ahead of time. You will be fine. If there is a lot of salt in your ribs it will draw out moisture, but you will be fine. Go be a good friend.
