definitely something I will redo!!
Sugars and paprikas burn (or turn dark brown & black) easily. If you are going for looks, try substituting "turbinado" sugar for the sugars called for in your rub recipe. It definitely helps and you can't tell the difference in taste.
Turbinado is less refined and less likely to get charcoal black on you.
Hope this helps.
