Directions

  1. Spray the inside of a slow cooker with nonstick cooking spray, and place the turkey legs into the cooker. In a bowl, mix together the brown sugar, yellow mustard, smoke flavoring, ketchup, cider vinegar, hot pepper sauce, salt, black pepper, and red pepper flakes until the sugar has dissolved. Pour the mixture over the turkey legs.
  2. Cover the cooker, set to Low, and cook 8 to 10 hours. Remove the turkey legs from the cooker, separate meat from bones and tendons, and shred the meat; return the meat to the sauce for serving.

I was looking for a great recipe to use up a ton of turkey legs we had in the freezer and I'm so glad I found this one! So easy to make and we loved this sauce. It's definitely got a bit of tang to it, but I wouldn't change a thing. Really great served with a side of coleslaw.

Good recipe to start, although I found the first batch to be a little bland and too mustardy...so, for the second batch, I added a few things to make it a great one! I used a variety of mustard; dijon, spicy brown and yellow for a total of just under the 1/4 cup called for. I added a little extra ketchup along with a sprinkle of cayenne pepper, about a Tablespoon of Worchestershire sauce, about a Tablesppon of Crytstal hot sauce in addition to the Jalapeno pepper sauce, a large clove of fresh chopped garlic and about a quarter of a finely chopped yellow onion. The result was a delicious blend of a little sweetness with just enough spice to make it interesting! I used leftover Thanksgiving turkey, white and dark meat, and cooked on low in the slow cooker for about 3 hours before serving. A big hit with the guys helping to remodel my basement the weekend after Thanksgiving. Even my husband, who is not a big fan of turkey, loved it! Will definitely hold on to this one for future turkey leftovers!

The sauce is really good. It was very thick, but cooked down with the turkey. I really enjoy the smokiness/heat of the sauce. It's not overly sweet like some BBQ sauces. I would make this again!
