Rub and sauce are about balance, either where you cut the sugar way back leaves you too heavy in other areas.
White sugar works fine in most rubs we use low and slow but if you are going to take the pit temps towards 275 then using turbinado will help keep the sugars from scorching.
You need sugar to offset salt and peppers in your rub and create the balance.
