I would like to try curing some turkey legs and then smoking them. I plan on using a dry rub with Cure # 1. I will use the legs to season beans. Thank you for your help.
Will Turkey Legs Cure With Skin On?

Yes, just make sure to add any cure that falls off into the bag. Immediately a dry rub cure starts drawing moisture out of the meat and mixes with the rub, which in effect forms a brine, so it is brining the legs which permeates through the skin with no problem. Turn them every day so the cure keeps curing evenly.
