Question Type of sugar you use in rubs...

What time of sugar do you put in your rubs? Any reason to use one type over the other? (flavor, caramelizing, granular size...)???

I have used turbinado, brown sugar, and white granulated sugars. Right now I'm experimenting with Honey Powder.

If I making it to sell or give out, I'd use turbinado since it doesn't clump. If I'm making it at home, I use brown sugar.

Turbinado, or dried brown sugar (preheat oven to 250°F, spread out sugar on cookie sheet, place in oven, then turn off and let sit for 20 minutes. Alternately, spread out on cookie sheet and place in dry area for 24 hours)
