Cindy Lou’s chili lime dry rub on best BBQ rubs and seasonings: Pecan wood is best for this turkey but almost any fruit wood or a mix of pecan and fruit wood such as apple or cherry, would be great. Let the turkey smoke for about 2 hours without touching it. At the 2-hour mark, begin mopping the bird with the Maple Barbecue Mop Sauce hourly (see recipe below). Cooking time will vary depending on the size of the bird and the temperature of the smoker. For a 25 pound turkey, smoking time will take approximately 5 to 6 hours. For a 15 pounder, the cooking time is about 3 hours. Monitor the thickest part of the turkey breast but also check the turkey legs before bringing the turkey in the house. It is recommended that you use a good digital probe meat thermometer, checking the temperature every hour once you start mopping the bird. Turkey breast, which is white meat, cooks a little differently than the darker meat found in the legs and wings. It is important to find the happy medium between getting the two meats perfectly done. We usually go with the breast temperature and as long as both the white and dark meats are at least 165°F. At this point, the turkey is done. Remember, the temperature is going to increase some after it is pulled off the smoker. We recommend a finish temperature of 165°F simply because we believe that’s the optimum temperature based on our experience.
Place ribs meat side up (or on their side if using a rack) in your smoker/grill. If your BBQ doesn’t have a water pan, it is suggested to place a pan of water or apple juice in with the ribs. Smoke for 3 hours at around 210-225 degrees. Regularly spray your ribs with apple juice to keep your ribs from drying out.Grill Users: During the first three hours, it is important to replenish your smoking tray with additional soaked smoking wood. Make sure to empty the spent wood chips first before replenishing. After the first 3 hours, remove your ribs from the smoker/grill. Take a sheet of aluminum foil and spray it with apple juice and place pats of butter in a row down the middle of the foil (optional). Place the ribs on the foil meat side down and wrap tightly making sure there are no leaks. Place the ribs back in your smoker and cook for another 2 hours. Note: There is no need to smoke with wood at this point in that your ribs have already soaked up as much smoke as they can, as well as the fact that the ribs are wrapped and smoke will not be able to penetrate the foil. Remove your wrapped ribs from the smoker, unwrap, and set back into the smoker meat side up. At this point you will want to glaze your ribs with your favorite BBQ sauce or marinade, both sides, and regularly flipping the ribs to make sure both sides are tacky and glazed. Do this for an additional hour or until the ribs are tender. Once the ribs are finished cooking, remove your ribs from your smoker/grill, wrap in foils and let rest for at least 10 minutes. Just like a great steak, this will allow the moisture to redistribute. Cut your ribs and serve!

Brisket Directions: Rinse the brisket with cold water then pat it dry with paper towels. Pour a small amount olive oil over the brisket and gently spread it around. Using a fair amount of Cindy Lou’s Black Label, massage it into the brisket. Repeat this until the whole brisket is generously seasoned. Cover or wrap for 2 – 4 hours (overnight is best). Never let meat stay at room temperature for more than 1 hour. When ready to cook, place drip pan under the grill rack. Fill drip pan with 1 part Beer to 1 part apple juice. Heat grill to 225° putting the room temperature brisket on the grill. In a medium skillet place cube of butter and 2 tablespoons of Cindy Lou’s Black Label, when melted add the onions and “sweat” them until soft and translucent. Take the onions out and set aside. Add to the butter mixture, one bottle BBQ sauce, ¼ cup apple juice and one cup of Beef Stock. Mix well.
