"This is a great way to use that leftover turkey after the holidays. It's even better the next day. My mother handed this down, and it has always been a family favorite. We usually have this barbeque on a roll."

THIS ROCKED!! What a refreshing change for leftover turkey. By about the 3rd day of leftover turkey, you want something that doesn't taste like turkey and this is it. I served it over leftover hot dog buns that I buttered and turned into garlic bread. It tasted tangy and a good BBQ flavor. My husband LOVED it and wants to make another batch with the rest of the leftover turkey to freeze for another time. I will cook this anytime I have leftover turkey!


Great idea for leftover turkey, an easy meal indeed! I like my bbq meat really saucy, so I needed to double the sauce part in order to get the desired consistency. I also added a splash of red wind vinegar and some thyme and sage (always a must w/turkey).


This was surprisingly tasty. I made a few minor tweeks and doubled the sauce, reduced the worcestershire to half of what it calls for and added 3/4 cup of vinegar for some tang. Very good with these least to my taste.
