Not seeing cronjob listed in log


I have the following cronjob (sudo crontab -l to produce this):

Code:
22 04 * * * /usr/local/bin/pulledpork.pl -c /etc/snort/pulledpork.conf -l
Here is what is in my /var/log/syslog when I grep CRON:

Code:
Jun  1 18:58:42 ubuntu-server cron[984]: (CRON) INFO (pidfile fd = 3)
Jun  1 18:58:42 ubuntu-server cron[984]: (CRON) INFO (Running @reboot jobs)
Jun  1 19:09:01 ubuntu-server CRON[9950]: (root) CMD (  [ -x /usr/lib/php/sessionclean ] && if [ ! -d /run/systemd/system ]; then /usr/lib/php/sessionclean; fi)
Jun  1 19:17:01 ubuntu-server CRON[10121]: (root) CMD (   cd / && run-parts --report /etc/cron.hourly)
