Here is a beef rib I done on the weekend is the glaze/bark to dark? I used the 3 2 1 method the meat was very tender and very tasty the bark was chewy and tasty as well nothing burnt or bitter. It just concerned me when I took some to work and someone said oh that looks burnt. You eat with your eyes first so that comment worried me. There is only 2 Tablespoons of raw sugar in my rub.
