Smoked Turkey Barbecue Sandwiches

45 Mins


1 Cup cider vinegar

1/4 Cup light brown sugar, packed

2 Tablespoons red pepper flakes

2 Tablespoons hot sauce (such as Frank’s)

2 Teaspoons kosher salt

1 Pound smoked turkey, pulled or chopped

8 Martin's Sandwich Potato Rolls, steamed or toasted

Serves: 8


Step 1

In a mixing bowl, whisk together cider vinegar, sugar, red pepper flakes, hot sauce, and salt until sugar and salt are dissolved. Set aside to rest for at least 20 minutes.

Step 2

Heat turkey in a microwave or in a foil-covered skillet in the oven or toaster oven until warmed through. Transfer turkey to a bowl. Add sauce a few tablespoons at a time, tossing with your hands after each addition and tasting until desired level of acidity and heat is achieved.

Step 3

Split open potato rolls, add a small handful of turkey, then a small handful of cole slaw. Serve immediately.
