I normally have a descent amount of brown sugar in my pork rub so I have tried to keep my temps under 250 thus far. I'm wondering if I could smoke at closer to 275? I just worry about it burning. I think the turbinado sugar would work at that temp but I just like brown sugar better. Anyone have experience with this?

Since I usually cook at 275F +, I switched to turbinado sugar for rubs a couple of years ago. I guess I'm more after the sweet than the taste since I don't notice the difference.

Also switched to Turbinado sugar. No more burned Molasses taste in your your mouth that you get from brown sugar.

Looks like its time to try a turbinado butt. Will I be ok smoking at 275? That's what I smoke my briskey's at.

Do you wrap your Butts, if so, that is a perfect time to add the Brown Sugar and some honey to bring that sweet element to your Pork.
