BBQ Turkey Smokey Joes

This slow cooker recipe requires minimal effort, which is the point of slow cooker recipes. The cayenne adds a bit more heat than I personally prefer, but I have one of the wimpiest tongues I know. My husband probably wouldn't even notice the cayenne.

BBQ Turkey Smokey Joes
3 lbs. ground turkey
1 onion, finely chopped
1 green pepper, finely chopped
16 oz. tomato sauce
3/4 cup ketchup
1/4 cup brown sugar
3 Tbsp. cider vinegar
1 Tbsp. liquid smoke
1 Tbsp. Worcestershire sauce
1 tsp. cayenne pepper
1/4 tsp. freshly ground black pepper
1/4 tsp. garlic powder

Brown turkey, and drain grease. Place turkey in slow cooker with remaining ingredients. Cook on low for 8 to 10 hours or high for 3 to 4 hours. Serve the meat mixture on buns. Makes at least 10 servings.
