I've purchased some items from this place and was pleased with the price & quality. http://www.sfherb.com/
I'm sure there are better places... Cheers!!!
I would imagine it would be cheaper as well - I thought about using a basic brown sugar rub with salt/pepper/chili powder/garlic powder/onion powder/paprika/and a little cayenne for a pork butt rub.
Then maybe use the rub I've been using for a final sprinkle on the product just to kick it up a notch before serving.
