Heat oil in large skillet. Add next 7 ingredients; stir. Cook until vegetables are tender and seasonings are aromatic, about 10 min.


Add turkey and sausage; break meat up with the back of a wooden spoon. Cook until no longer pink, about 4 min. Stir in beer and scrape up any bits that are stuck to the bottom of the pan.


Add to a large slow cooker. Stir in beans, tomatoes and barbecue sauce. Cover with lid and turn the heat to LOW; cook for 8 hours. (Or, cook on HIGH for 5 hours.)
