I was thrown off guard by that, too! The 7 tablespoons of brown sugar and remaining 1 tablespoon of salt are used in the final step, after the pork has been cooked:

"In a small bowl, stir together the remaining tablespoon of salt with the brown sugar.

Rub this mixture all over the cooked pork. Place in oven for approximately 10 to 15 minutes, or until a dark caramel crust has developed on the meat." I hope this helps. ;o)
