I was checking on the net for variations on a dry rub for ribs. It seems fairly common to have something like a 1/4 cup of white sugar and a 1/4 cup of brown sugar in a dry rub recipe. Why not all brown sugar, or all white? What am I missing here?

 Yeah, same for stuff like cookies.  Brown sugar has that earthy mole-asses flavor and white sugar is just sweet.  All brown sugar, you get a kind of bitter cookie.  All white sugar, you get no complexity.

Try turbinado sugar. The granules are larger, it still contains some of the molasses. It resists scorching much better than white or brown sugar.
