From what you are saying you have a rub with high sugar content. If you have high sugar content and cooking at 325-350 degrees the sugars will burn which is why you will get a black skin. One way to help avoid this is to cut back on your sugar, or use cheese cloth or foil over the bird once it gets to the nice golden brown color you are looking for.
