I still use brown sugar if the recipe calls for it specifically (might drop down a bit and replace some of the brown with turbinado). But if it says "sugar", I always use turbinado. I don't know whether uniformity is necessary or not but I recently started to do this on my latest batches. I can't argue with the Big Bob Gibson success.
