    Very good. I used Mexican hot chili powder and gave it a little kick. Didn't use reg sugar, only brown sugar and it was just the right amount of sweet. Will definitely be fixing this again.

    Had a crispy crust with juicy tenderloin inside. Kisd loved the "shell" created by the rub. A great way to liven up a bland pork tenderloin we will make it again

    My husband & I liked this very much. It has a little kick, but not too much.

    Bought pork tenderloins from Publix. Two in a package so I used all the rub. Rub was good, tenderloin tender. Hubby liked this. His only complaint was there was no sauce.
