BBQ Pulled Turkey Sandwiches

So I know yesterday's post I said I would post my new smoothie recipe but I'm posting this instead. You'll thank me later! 

Some of my favorite foods are BBQ. 
It’s juicy, tender and DELISH! 
I mean growing up in Missouri an hour away from Kansas City you're bound to love BBQ. 
Now I know everyone thinks their state has the best BBQ and personally I don't have a preference I love it all. 
So I knew over the weekend I was going to make something BBQ. 
Geez can I said BBQ anymore! HA 
Well what better than BBQ Pulled Turkey Sandwiches?!! I know right, sounds AMAZING and it was! 

Last week while grocery shopping I headed over to the meat section like always looking through the good stuff when I came across something new I hadn't even seen before. Honeysuckle white Turkey Breast Roast.
It was like a light bulb went off in my head. I KNEW I had to buy it and try to make some BBQ pulled sandwiches. 
Typically I don't make these mainly because they aren't my favorite way to have BBQ and I'm not a huge pulled pork fan but I knew I could make it amazing and I did! Plus I couldn't wait to make it and share my recipe with you guys!
This would be great to make when you're having friends/family over. It's healthy and delicious. It doesn't sacrifice flavor at all! Enjoy!!! 

So glad I found this! Hope I can find more to create different recipes!
