Smoking Turkey Legs for Family!! D I S N E Y

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 

Going to be doing some SMOKED Turkey Legs this weekend.

 

Was hoping to get some good recipies from anyone that has ever smoked them. Prep/Temp/How Long/etc.

I have a offset smoker.

 

I would really like them to taste like the ones you get at Disney World. They are amazing.  Just by reading online it seems its pretty hard.

 

Any help would be great. 

 

Thanks,

Shelby B.

First off Wecome to SMF there Shelby. You should go to the wiki section here and you might find some recipes there if not then we out here will come up with some good ones for sure. I would recommend that you brine them for a couple of hours in the Slaughter House Brine by Tip (travcoman 45). You should be able to find that one in the wiki section. Then you can cure them if you want to or you can just throw them legs in naked (I do that with some big beef smokes) and let them go. You'll be surprised how much flavor that you'll get for just the smoke. You could look up a rub to put on them and they are a dme a dozen around here. So I would brine them and throw on some Old Bay rub (my favorite store bought rub) then throw them into the smoker at about 375° and take them to maybe 165-170° and then enjoy. If you don't mind we here like Q-view of your smoke so we can enjoy it too. We are and you will be hooked on that stuff. You just wait it will happen and then the other half will be making fun of you for taking pictures and putting them on the internet. I guess it's kinda of a test to see if you will make it here at the great SMF.
