Jans rub - kind of sugar used
« on: November 28, 2010, 07:12:33 am »
Jan's rub just says "1 cup + 4 tbsp sugar". Is this just pure cane white sugar or is it brown sugar that should be used?

Plain white sugar is all I have ever used

Thanks for the quick response. That's what I love about this forum. I figured I would start mixing up all of the other ingredients and by the time I was done I might have a response. Sure enough, I had two. Thanks again!

I've made it with white sugar, and with brown sugar.

The brown sugar gives it a little different flavor, and if you use the regular baking stuff (not the free pouring granulated type) it will tend to clump up on you easier.
