Default Black ribs

Quick question. When I slow smoke my ribs, they always turn a black color, not the mahogony I would like. They taste great, but the appearance is not what I want. I'm wondering if I have too much sugar in my rub.

Should I use a low (or no) sugar rub to start, and then add a higher sugar-content rub later in the cook?
Thx, JJ
