Slow Cooker Turkey Leg Ingredients:


  • Add your marinade ingredients into the slow cooker and mix. Using a vegetable knife score your turkey leg so that sauce can get into the meat and not just the skin. Cover the turkey in the marinade and season well with salt and pepper.

Swaps. We used some leftover barbecue sauce we had in the fridge. You could do the same or swap it for your own homemade sauce, or another flavour you prefer.
Optional. When the turkey is shredded you can load your pulled turkey in extra barbecue sauce. Or eat it as it is.
