Slow Cooker Bacon-Ranch Beer-Can Turkey Recipe Reviews - Allrecipes.com (Pg. 1)

It is moist, I'll give you that, but basically any turkey breast cooked in a liquid (beer or broth) in the crock pot will be moist. Not worth the ingredients to use the bacon and ranch dressing mix, as they just do not flavor the turkey that well.

I doubled the amount of ranch per butter for under the skin, and increased the sprinkled butter over top some, but not a lot. I did this because another reviewer said that they could not taste the ranch. With my increases, the taste of the ranch was faint and I felt it more increased the saltiness, which was not really desired. However, the overall taste of this turkey breast was wonderful and the breast was juicy. I would not increase the ranch over what this recipe calls for again. I have to admit that half-way through the cooking procedure I was a bit skeptical. It really didn't smell that great. But when the time was right, the flavor was there. However, I wouldn't quite rate this 4 stars, but more like 4.6 or so, just enough to tip it to 5. A turkey, slow cooked looks pale, mushy and unappealing. Add bacon and it looks worse. After it was fully cooked, I put this under the broiler to brown up just a bit. I feel this recipe needs that extra step. Don't expect a big ranch flavor with this recipe because you won't find it. But you will find a nice balanced flavor that yields a tender juicy bird.

I used bone-in chicken thighs (4 total) in the slow cooker. It smelled delicious, so I was super excited. The chicken was moist and tender, but I only gave it three stars because I could barely taste the ranch seasoning, which was kind of a bummer.

I used a fryer instead of turkey breast. I also didn't put it in the slow cooker, but baked it for 6 hours at 250. The kids loved it!
