To make dried apples take cookie sheet spray or butter slice 3 or 4 apples vary thin

salt & put brown sugar on apple slices to dry out put in oven at 150  for 3 hours after it

The rub you have posted is a slightly modified version of  "Pig's Worst Nightmare", the original uses turbinado sugar(as well as brown sugar) and skips the cayenne pepper.

I know this because it is a very popular rub with BBQers everywhere. I have also modified it to suit my tastes by substituting cinnamon for the garlic. My version is in the Wiki section of SMF-

The original was posted in 2007 by a user called "Portergolf" here-

I love using that apple rub on pork loins and pork tenderloins.

BTW you can buy dried apples, I use dried Granny Smith's in my rub.
