To create Spice Rub: In a small bowl, combine light-brown sugar, salt, cinnamon, cumin, allspice, and ground pepper.
Heat broiler, with rack 4 inches from heat source. Line a broilerproof rimmed baking sheet with foil. Place pork on pan; rub all over with oil, and coat evenly with spice rub.
Broil, turning occasionally, until an instant-read thermometer inserted into pork registers 150 degrees, 15 to 20 minutes.
Wrap loosely with foil in pan; let rest 5 to 10 minutes before slicing thinly. Serve with the salsa.
