Turkey Legs Tonight

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 

So I decided I would smoke some turkey legs tonight.

Got up this morning and made brine for the turkey legs.

Sorry no picture of that. After soaking in the brine for about

6 hours, I took them out and rinsed them off then pulled skin back

and Rubbed them with a poultry rub I found on the internet.

 

3 Tbs onion powder

2 Tbs paprika

1 Tbs garlic powder

1 tsp course ground pepper

1 tsp ground cumin

1/2 tsp rubbed sage

Then pulled skin back up and over legs and used a light coat of

Butterball's Cajun Rub.

Then just to try something different for me, I put some alder pellets in 

my amnps. and now just let them cook. :beercheer:

 

Thanks for lookin'

And now for the final showing.

Very good legs. Juicy tender, and a great taste also.

I will use this rub again.

 

Thanks for lookin'

This is relevant to my interests. I have 8 legs in brine right now. Never thought to season under the skin like they. Looks awesome.
