View Full Version : Smoked turkey legs, a spring festival treat!

04-23-2012, 04:47 PM
Lots of festival Turkey leg options in my neck of the woods right now. The Main St. Arts Festival just finished up, Mayfest is coming up soon, plus the Scarborough Renaissance Festival is in full swing.

Price has jumped to $9 at Main St. for one leg. Decided I would try smoking my own.

Here are some pics.





They turned out mighty tasty. I cured them so they had that nice hammy flavor.

They were cheap to make, a little over a dollar a leg. Might need to think about setting up a cart next year.

I have to say, your pics look much better than the turkey leg with a white background and faux shadow!

LMFAO - There is a turkey leg on the screen?

I had that exact same thought

If you take a knife and score a radius just above the lower knuckle (prior to cooking/marinating turkey or chicken legs) it will release the tendons and skin.

Doing so makes 'em more tender and facilitates the seasoning.

Women? As a local, I should warn you, those three don't look like their ages add up to 55.
