Time

Ingredients

2 lbs turkey tenderloin

Dizzy Pig’s Dizzy Dust or other BBQ seasoning

1 c BBQ sauce

1/4 c honey

1/4 c brown sugar

Directions
Step 1

Prepare the grill or smoker to cook indirect at 350°F with apple wood added for flavor. With a sharp knife, split the turkey tenders in half lengthwise. Season the strips liberally with BBQ seasoning.

Step 2

Cook on the grill for 20 minutes to add smoke flavor. The turkey will be underdone but it’s going to cook more in the sauce. Remove to a cutting board and cut the turkey into bite-sized pieces. Add them to a grill-friendly pan (a disposable foil pan works great for this recipe).

Step 3

In a medium bowl combine the barbecue sauce, honey and brown sugar and mix well. Pour the sauce over the turkey bites and toss until they are all well-coated. Return to the grill/smoker and cook for 20 to 30 minutes until hot and bubbling.

Step 4

Remove and serve immediately with traditional barbecue sides and some bread for sopping up that sauce.
