Good question. Yes, I run it through my spice grinder (spare coffee grinder) on coarsest setting. I also use the same grinder to mix most of my rubs. Just toss all the ingredients in hopper and run it through on super coarse a couple times. Gets it mixed up and all same size.
I wouldn 't recommend a blade type grinder for this. Only a decent burr style grinder.
On the original question, yes I've dried out brown sugar in the oven before. It works to keep it from clumping. But I no longer use brown sugar in anything. Turbinado is easier to work with and seems to hold up to heat better than brown.
