(That is @chefrobertthebernedoodle making an appearance)


– 1 lb package collard greens separated from stems

– 1 sweet Vidalia onion chopped

– 2 smoked ham hocks (feel free to smoke them yourself but I usually just buy the already smoked ones)

– 1 32 oz box chicken broth

– 2 tbsp apple cider vinegar

– 3 tbsp light brown sugar

– 1 tbsp Full Boar BBQ Garden, Barn, and River Rub – buy now

– 1 tsp crushed red pepper


– Place all ingredients except the ham hocks into a 6 quart slow cooker. With tongs, mix ingredients well making sure all the collard leaves are wet from the broth.

– When all ingredients are mixed work the ham hocks into the bottom of the slow cooker.

– Cook on low for 9 hours or high for 4 hours stirring every 1-2 hours.

– In the final half hour, remove the ham hocks from the slow cooker. Let cool a bit before shredding all the meat off and returning the boneless meat to the pot mixing back in with the rest of the ingredients.

– Enjoy!
