Rotating Fixture around dynamic point

I am having trouble understanding how to rotate a fixture around a dynamic point. What I am trying to do is allow for a dynamic fixture (billiards cue stick) to rotate 360 degrees around another dynamic fixture (cue ball). What i hope to achieve in this top down billiard simulation is the effect that the cuestick follows the mouse or finger input and runs from that point into the cueball. I have tried adjusting the fixture.body.rotation value but cant seem to get full 360 degree turns out of the cuestick. Should I establish a temporary joint to rotate the stick around depending on where the cue ball lands? Sorry first time developing in XNA as well as with FP3, all help is greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance.
