Down and dirty turkey legs

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
So, nothing too special, really just a target of opportunity. I had a three pack of turkey legs and a bag of charcoal I wanted to get rid of. Might as well burn it. Rub was:
1/2 tbs paprika
1 tsp table salt
1/2 tsp pepper
1/2 tsp sage
1/2 tsp rosemary
1/2 tsp thyme

Put on a base of olive oil and then the rub. Lit a chimney of coal and dumped it over a chimney of unlit coal in the WSM. This charcoal has the little chunks of "supposed" wood. Which is why I didn't like it. I prefer to have control over the amount of smoke and that kind of coal takes that out of my hands. So, I figured a short smoke would be a good way to get rid of it.

so turkey goes on. I'm running wide open with an empty water pan at 300.

Had some hot links from the meat counter at Kroger so I threw them on as well. Pulled it at 50 minutes with IT at 178. Links were 190.
flavor was great. Meat was juicy and skin was bite thru. Texture was close to an event vendor but the tendons/ligaments were a little tough. Links were good and the missus even ate a whole one. Overall, tasty meal! Hope y'all eat good this weekend.
