Pros: The taste, what else!
Cons: Having to order it.
Long ago and far away in a land that is no longer an old butcher in a very small very cajun town of Eunice befriends my Pop while he was there. My Pop was there for a construction project and was living in the motor home. He made friends with the butcher buying meat for hos grill every evening. The butcher gave Pop a quart jar of spice me made for gilling pork. I found it in the kitchen cabinet unopened and heard the story. I tryed it, it was outstanding! So good that I asked my Pop to get "us" some more and see if he could get the recipe or how we could continue to aqquire it. Pop got one more qt jar.
About a year later, I drive to Eunice to get more from this butcher. Knowing I'll sweet talk him out of his recipe ........ I get there go in some you guy was behind the counter and I asked for the butcher. Long story short, his Dad had retired and the next month after died. I asked about the rub, it was his personal rub and no one knew how to make it.
Nice story huh........
Back to Squeal, Squeal ain't the same but its the closest I have yet to find. Its definately a 5 star pork rub. I am going to order a larger bottle.
