4 cups water
1/2 teaspoon salt, plus more for seasoning
1 Tablespoon Premium All Purpose Rub
1 pound Brussels sprouts, trimmed and halved
6 slices bacon
1/2 cup shallots
black pepper, for seasoning
Cook bacon in a large skillet over medium heat until very crisp, about 3 to 4 minutes per side. Turn off heat and transfer bacon to a paper towel-lined plate. Reserve the pan with the bacon fat. Allow bacon to cool, and then chop into small pieces. In a medium-sized pot, add water and 1/2 teaspoon salt. Bring the water to a boil. Add Brussels sprouts and cook 5 to 6 minutes, or until tender. Immediately drain the Brussels sprouts and shake to remove the excess water. Turn heat to medium-high on the pan with the bacon fat drippings. Add the shallots and sauté for 2 minutes, until tender, stirring occasionally. Push the shallots to the side of the pan, and add the Brussels sprouts and the Premium All Purpose. Cook for about 5 minutes, searing each side of the Brussels sprouts until lightly brown. Turn off heat and season with salt and pepper. Add the bacon to the pan and stir to combine.
Fat Boy Vinegar Mop Sauce
Meat Rub of Choice (We recommend Fat Boy Memphis, All Purpose, Steak or Prime Angus Rub)
Rub all sides of the brisket with rub of choice. Set aside at room temperature for 2 hours. Prepare your smoker according to manufacturer’s directions. Arrange the brisket fat-side down on the grate and smoke for 3 to 4 hours, mopping with Fat Boy Vinegar Mop Sauce every hour. Set the temperature to 225 degrees and continue to cook the brisket, mopping occasionally with sauce, until an instant-read thermometer inserted in the thickest part of the meat reads 203 degrees (this will likely take 6 to 8 hours).
Foil the meat and let it rest for 30 minutes, preferably in an insulated container such as a cooler so the meat stays hot. Slice with a sharp knife across the grain into pencil-width slices. Serve and enjoy!

2 cups cubed cooked turkey, chilled
1 Tbsp. Fat Boy Cowgirl Rub or Premium All Purpose Rub
1 large onion sliced into rings
1 Tbsp. butter or margarine
1 medium diced tomato
3/4 cup chicken stock
salt & pepper
2/3 cup plain low-fat yogurt
2 Tbsp. flour
1 Tbsp. tomato paste
3 cups hot cooked pasta
3 Tbsp. fresh parsley (optional)
Lightly coat turkey cubes in Cowgirl or Premium All Purpose Rub, then heat until they are hot. Saute the onion in butter/margarine until soft. Add the diced tomato and saute for a minute or two more. Stir in the chicken stock, and add salt and pepper to taste. Combine yogurt, flour and tomato paste in a small bowl. Slowly add the mixture to the pan. Cook and stir until the sauce is thick and bubbly, stirring to keep it from sticking to the pan (watch so that your heat is not too high!). If using fresh parsley, toss it with the hot drained pasta. Place the pasta on a serving platter and top with the hot turkey cubes. Spoon some of the sauce over the turkey, and pass the remaining sauce with the platter of pasta.
