- 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

- 1 tsp crushed red pepper


(That is @chefrobertthebernedoodle making an appearance)


- 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!
