If you google for popular rib rubs, many of the recipes contain more than 70% sugar. Alton Brown's recipe is closer to 80% sugars. I lost all respect for him after seeing one of his BBQ episodes.
He actually stated in the show that cooking ribs above 230 F would result in rib jerky. Where did he get that BS from?
