    I make my own... 

    For Pork I use one I make up...

    rosemary, finely chopped
    Brown sugar
    garlic powder
    onion powder
    sea salt
    cayenne pepper
    freshly ground black pepper
    Smoked Spanish paparika

    It makes pork taste awesome, then I also put about 8-10 cloves of garlic in slits inside the Butt..

    Great recipe, I'm going to try my hand at a Boston Butt later today. In one of your pictures it looks like you rubbed them down with a little mustard, is that what I see?
