I've been wanting to try these for a while, and finally found some turkey legs on sale. It's odd; around here you can find whole turkeys and breasts everywhere, but hardly ever wings or legs. I wonder where they go?
Anyway, they came out great! I haven't been to Disneyland in years, not since the kids were small, but they do taste very close to how I remember them. Although, I have read that the ones at Disneyland are brined with liquid smoke, and then baked.

In the brine. I was happy to use up some TenderQuick that was in the pantry. Now that I have cure #1, I rarely ever use it.
Soaked, dried off, and hit with a bit of Pam and paprika.
The lower two legs must have come from Birdzilla! There were at least 2.5 lbs. each.
Into the MES 30, with a 1-1/2 rows of Pitmasters Choice in the AMNPS.
At the 3 hour mark.
And done! Took about 4 hours at 225° to reach 165° IT.
Plated, with a good hefeweizen! This was one of the "small" ones.
(Notice the coupons in the corner? KFC can suck it! I'll take one of these any day.)
