I don't have a lot of experience using this ingredient, but I grew a stevia plant in a pot last year. It was incredibly easy to grow (in mostly shade) and grew a lot bigger than I'd anticipated.

The plant is WAY sweeter than sugar! More like those little tabs of saccarine (sp?) that my grandmother dropped in her tea when I was a kid.

I dried a bunch of stevia and it was still WICKED sweet! I use a teeny amount to counteract the acidity of tomatoes in my spaghetti sauce.

I think dried stevia would be wonderful in a rub. Not sure about processed stevia, but I'd guess it would be good, too. But I sure wouldn't start off with a 1:1 substitution. Start tiny and work up.
