ok so i now make (in bulk) the iceman rub that he so graciously shared.   now i am wondering what if you added some coco powder to a rub?  i have added chocolate to my chilli and some various sauces and had good results.   let me know your thoughts.

Nothing wrong with coco powder in a rub.  Some rubs made by very famous chef's include coco powder along with other more dominant ingredients. See this thread and the recipe link in the first post.

I recall a Man vs Food or Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives episode where he was at a famous BBQ joint and there was a little cocoa powder in the rub.  It was a fairly large batch and there wasn't a lot of cocoa powder in it so I would be careful with the amounts.  Didn't seem like very much was needed to impart it's flavor.
