- Vickie's Slow Cooked BBQ Turkey
- This year we had some extra guests for
Thanksgiving Dinner. Which means we had one huge turkey. Even with
giving everyone a zip lock bag to take home, we still a lot of
leftovers. I decided to try my hand at using some of the brown meat of
the turkey for some slow crock pot BBQ. So far, the boys are loving it.
- Preparation Time: 10 Minutes
Cook Time: 4 to 24 hours
- Serves: 6
- Crock Pot
- 1 lbs pulled Turkey, dark meat (legs, wings
and meat around the spine)
- ½ tblspn McCormick's Grill Mates BBQ Seasoning
- ½ cup of water for every 4 hours you want to
cook your turkey
- 1 cup your favorite BBQ sauce (we prefer KC Masterpiece Original or Sweet Baby Ray's BBQ)
- 1 small onion - chopped
- 1 tblspn Lemon Juice
- Turn the crock pot to low/medium heat
- Add water, BBQ, chopped onion BBQ Seasoning
and lemon juice. Mix all ingredients.
- Add the pulled strips of turkey to the crock
pot mixture. Stir/fold the meat into the sauce to ensure it's coated
thoroughly. You don't have to break the turkey down into fine strips.
Just make sure the meat isn't in a 1 or 2 inch diameter hunks.
- Cook for at least 4 hours or up to 24 hours.
Stir and fold the mix often.
If you start the mix in the morning and you want this for dinner the
same day, turn the heat up to high. And fold the meat into the sauce
very hour until serving.
If you've got time to cook the mix over night, keep the pot on a low
setting. Stir/fold the mix several times before heading to bed. And
again in the morning for the first 4 hours. Then again fold it several
times in the last 2 hours before serving.
- Serve hot on toast, croissants with cheese, or leftover dinner
rolls. (Does anyone ever have leftover dinner rolls from a holiday
- Serve plain with leftover stuffing and potatoes.
- Serve with Potato Cakes and leftover veggies.
- You can always add various beans to your BBQ for a BBQ Chili. Baked or pinto beans are good additions for that.
