Got a new Char-Griller Akorn Kamado recently, and going to be trying my first smoke on it here in the next few days.
We downsized and moved, and had to get rid of my Oklahoma Joe due to space constraints.
I have been smoking ribs using Jeff Phillips recipes for the rub, and love it. We now live very close to my in-laws, and wife would like me to smoke some ribs and have them over as well. She would really like me to do some pulled pork, but thought for my first smoke on this thing I would try it with some spare ribs.
My dilemma - her dad can not eat brown sugar, gives him migraines. White sugar is ok, but not brown - I know strange...
Anyway, I love Jeff's rub recipe and will be using it, but obviously it uses a lot of brown sugar. I will need to smoke a half rack or so of ribs without any brown sugar.
So I am looking for any suggestions? Could I substitute white sugar instead for that half rack for him, or would that not really be any good. I know it would not have the texture of course the brown sugar gives. Or just do his ribs with no sugar but use everything else in the recipe?
Thanks for any suggestions,
