The Que needs to taste good to you / the competitior. If you dumb some of this stuff down, what tastes good at the family reunion will translate across competiton.
You may never win the Jack without some modifications but bottom line is create your own rub, buy some off the shelf, mix 'em together, figure out what tastes good and turn it in.
I think a better focus would be what other items are needed.
Just my.02, YMMV, of course.
