4 to 6 turkey legs
Kosher salt, to taste
Freshly ground black pepper, to taste
1/2 cup ketchup
5 tablespoons apple cider vinegar
1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
4 tablespoons dark brown sugar, packed
1 teaspoon liquid smoke, optional
1 (8-ounce) can crushed pineapple
1/2 cup chopped onion
Gather the ingredients.
Lightly grease the crockery liner of the slow cooker.
Arrange the turkey legs in the slow cooker and sprinkle with salt and pepper.
In a bowl, combine the remaining ingredients; spoon over the turkey legs and turn to coat legs well.
Cover and cook on low for 7 to 9 hours. They might be falling apart if cooked too long, so begin checking them for tenderness after about 7 hours.
Serve and enjoy.
- Feel free to add some chopped green onion or a minced clove of garlic to the turkey legs for some extra flavor.
- Bell pepper chunks or strips would be good as well.
