This recipe interested me as my New Year's meal was pretty "pork heavy" with a brown sugar ham and black-eyed peas with a ham hock. I thought the turkey addition would be really nice - and it was. I used 4 bunches of collared greens instead of 5 and a smoked turkey leg (brined for 11 hours with kosher salt, brown sugar, water, and liquid smoke and then *loosely* smoked on our grill). After greens had cooked down, I removed turkey leg and diced a bit of the meat and tossed that back in. Also added a scant tablespoon of sugar and a few splashes of white vinegar. I didn't cook for as long as it said as my greens were getting to a nice consistency and I didn't want 'em mushy. Really, really good. I would like to try this next year with a proper smoked turkey leg (couldn't find one this year) - I bet that would make it great!
