Here's a lower fat variation on the theme of pulled pork, a barbecue favorite from the South. If you like intensely smoky flavour, increase the quantity of the liquid smoke, but be careful--a little goes a long way. Serve this between hot split onion or Kaiser buns, accompanied by a bowl of coleslaw for a "down home" dinner that all will enjoy.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Place turkey in slow cooker stoneware.
  2. In a saucepan over medium heat, combine remaining ingredients except for liquid smoke.
  3. Bring to boil and simmer for 5 minutes.
  4. Remove from heat and stir in liquid smoke.
  5. Pour sauce over turkey.
  6. Cover and cook on LOW for 8 to 10 hours or on HIGH for 4 to 5 hours, until turkey is falling apart.
  7. Transfer turkey to a cutting board and pull meat off the bones in shreds, using two forks.
  8. Return to sauce and keep warm.
  9. When ready to serve, spoon shredded turkey and sauce over warm buns.

This was very whole family loved it. The only change I made was to sub the corn syrup with molasses and honey, and to make 1 1/2 times the sauce recipe to make it juicier. Came out perfect!

i know i reviewed this before, oh well, we love this recipe!! dh lived in TN and AL before he met me(and was happy) and he had no clue that this was not pork. i have made one tiny change, i don't use the corn syrup because there is enough sugar in the ketchup. really great recipe!!!!
