We prefer it cold for sandwiches. Heated up it loses some of that good smoky taste, IMHO - but cold it seems to really be nice and smoky!
It's good for quesadillas or turkey salads too.
I HAVE heated up the whole bird (I think most have instructions how to do so) but DH and I agree that it's better cold - just our humble opinions, though!

We prefer it cold or chopped and added to a soup, or in eggs...or with eggs.
My wife (who is not a low carber) builds sandwiches, and I make lettuce wraps with bacon, blue or sharp cheddar cheese and smoked turkey slathered with mayo.
Sometimes I make up a package of Hot Pork Rinds in the microwave and put cream cheese and smoked turkey on them. We use the Lowry's do-it-yourself pork rinds.
We prefer it cold...

Yeah, they are better cold. We use smoked turkey the way you would sandwich meat.
It's great in a Chef salad or rolled in a homemade low carb wrapper with mayo, cheese and pickles. You can dice it really small and mix it with boiled egg, pickles and mayo, then serve it on an avocado half drizzled with some low carb poppy seed dressing.
Poppy Seed Dressing
1 1/2 cups Splenda
2 teaspoons Dry mustard
2/3 cup Vinegar
1/4 of a medium size onion
3 tablespoons Poppy seeds
2 cups vegetable Oil
Combine ingredients except for the oil in a food processor. Process until smooth, and then slowly add the oil. Add poppy seeds and blend lightly. Chill, covered, in refrigerator.
I keep mine in an old mayo jar in the frig. It will separate after sitting for a while but a couple of shakes and it’s good to go.
It will last practically forever in the frig and is good on a lot of different meats and salads.
Courage doesn't always Roar - Sometimes it is the quiet voice at the end of day saying I will try again tomorrow.

Thanks for all the wonderful suggestions. I wasn't sure if it would be better heated, now I know. Quesadillas, lettuce wraps, poppy seed dressing, yum. What are Do it Yourself Pork Rinds?!
