Shredded Turkey Barbecue

Recipe by  

"A co-worker brought this and I could not believe it wasn't pork! The ingredients surprised me...but this is a fab slow cooker recipe! Not exactly low cal...but full of protein for sure. Tweaked a bit to make it mine. Can you say Keeper? Make your sandwiches with coleslaw if you're from the south! The recipe freezes very well."

Made this using a barbecue sauce that I made instead of bought. Loved the addition of baked beans, makes this recipe unique! Will definitely be making this again!

This was just OK. With the baked beans in there, I thought it pretty much tasted like baked beans on a bun. The turkey got lost. Maybe omitting the beans and adding more BBQ sauce would be better.

This is an easy weeknight meal! We loved it! I couldnt find turkey thighs so I used chicken breasts. I will definately make this again.

This was SO good and SO easy to make! It is definitely going to be a staple in our house this winter.

Everyone liked this. Have made it as a dinner for company. Super easy, too. Would give it a 6 if possible.

Awesome recipe! I substituted chicken thighs for the turkey, and it turned out great. Most importantly, I love the fact that I can dump everything into the crockpot the night before and have it ready by lunch time. Perfect recipe for family get-togethers...when you'd rather socialize than cook!

This was very very good. I would definitely make this again. I didn't even have mustard and it came out delicious.
