    Supposed to smoke some ribs tomorrow and through about trying the hot and fast method to see what it's all about. I did the hot and fast on some butts at about 275 and at times a touch higher and worked great. My question is, since jeffs rub is high in sugar, how hot is too hot? I'd rather not burn the sugar and ruin the ribs. Any info is much appreciated. Thanks!

    You can use Turbinado Sugar (Sugar in the raw) in place of the regular sugar it doesn't burn as easy

    I'll try that next time cause I already have some made. Am I just SOL? Thanks for the tip!

    Shelton, table sugar should not burn anywhere below 350*. i think I've seen 400* somewhere. However, I use Turbinado sugar in all of my rubs and sauces. It mixes much better with the other ingredients without a super sweet flavor. This is the same principle as Kosher salt over table salt. Give it a try. Joe

    Thanks for the info! I ran it around 325 and worked out great.
