Rub makes the meat taste delicious and without it, you might as well be eating lumps of tasteless fat and muscle. It brings life to the dullest of meats and once you try rub, you'll never want to go back.

Why buy it pre-made with who knows what in it, when you can make your own that's not only cheaper but more delicious than anything you could ever buy from a faceless company?
