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
Steps to Make It
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.
