Some fatties are already quite spiced.
For example, the JD Bold and Spicy seems to be overly spiced (to me) as is. I'd guess adding a rub may be too much.
Some of the blander fatties may benefit from a rub.
Bottom line - part of what makes us all unique human beings is that our taste buds are different.
Experiment man! If it turns out damned nasty, so what. You're out a few bucks and your knowledge base has grown.
And, it's okay to post in here about bbq events that just didn't turn out right.
