Drying Brown Sugar

I use brown sugar in my rub and I have heard people say that by drying the brown sugar it will stop it from clumping. So my question is how do you dry brown sugar? Also is there a difference in the taste once you dry it?

That's right, then after it's dry you'll have to put it in a plastic bag and run it over a couple times with a rolling pin to break it up or some other way to break up the clumps. Hit it with a cast iron skillet, whatever.

Let it sit on a cookie sheet for a few days and stir it every day. Roll it out when done.

I keep mine in a vaccumed sealed jar. Microwave it for 20 seconds to soften it up.

After drying in a low 150¬į oven, I run mine through a coffee grinder and turn it into dust, Works great and helps bark formation.
