you don't want/need room temp..

either right out the fridge or resting a little while to let any rub breakdown a bit if you prefer (for me - usually 15 minutes or so resting after rub applied and smoker is coming up to temp)

good luck !!

I take mine out of the fridge and dust with spices as they go on the grill. I leave the membrane on.
I smoke them directly over the fire membrane down and only season the meat side.
I flip once or twice during the cook never leaving the meat side down for more than 30 minutes at a time.
I do not use nor do I condone the use of foil while cooking ribs for personal enjoyment.

Enjoy. Ribs are the best, however you decide to cook them.
