Default high heat pork butts

So I've done about 20-30 pork butts with great success at 225degrees but have seen some people doing them higher around 250-275 to get done faster. I certainly wouldn't mind getting some done a little faster. I'm wondering about rubs burning with the sugar in them. I think sugar starts to burn around 250 if im not mistaken. I do like a sweet rub on my butts. What about substituting sugar in the raw for the brown sugar? Would that help? What are most guys doing in this situation? Also since it would be higher heat would it be wiser to leave the fat cap on to help protect it? I normally cut mine off. Thanks for the help, Nick
