Yep, if it works on beef, it should work on pork as well, and that's what I want to try on my next pork.
First.... sugar is what you use when your process does not create a bark naturally.
Non sugar rubs and what they can produce.

This picture shows how much damn rub I put on my briskets. Lots of salt and pepper. When done according to my non wrap until after the stall style, I have NO problems with salt or pepper (heat content).... but
If you try wrapping at the wrong time its a disaster.... salt is retained, pepper never loses its heat.
