The biggest advantage to turbinado over white or brown sugars is its ability to withstand prolonged heat without burning. You can scorch brown sugar on ribs in just a few hours, turbinado will survive a rib cook without burning.
On butts and briskets, if you leave them on long enough to get them done any sugar added at the beginning will have turned dark, turbinado just lasts longer into the cook before the scorching starts.
