Smoking Pre-cooked Turkey?

    I bought some pre-cooked turkey hindquarters the other day because they were only.58 per pound. The store said just heat them like a potroast in some chicken stock. But I was thinking about hitting them with a rub and trying to heat them up in the smoker. As cheap as they were I figured I could afford to experiment.These aren't processed meat, just appear to be roasted then vacuum sealed. Bone in and skin on.

    Anyone try anything like this? Suggestions on time/temp?

    I would go around 250-300 degrees with smoke until heated through to 165 Internal Temperature.  Just keep an eye on them because the temp may move along pretty quickly. 

    Good Luck,

    I think I would smoke them in a pan with chicken stock, skin side up. Otherwise I think you may dry them out.
