    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-, scroll down, it's the third recipe down.

    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.
