Allspice, nutmeg, and cinnamon combination often found in cold-weather baked goods accents the savory rub mixture. Turn the pork frequently in the pan so the spices don't burn and grow bitter. The rub also works well with heritage pork like Duroc or Berkshire. If you don't have whole allspice berries, preground allspice will work.
