Decided to change the pace a little and smoke some turkey legs. I've always loved the ones I get at the state fair and in Hillsville VA at the big flea market. Bought three packs containing 3 each and each pack weighed about 3 1/2 pounds so they were only a little over a pound a piece. Decided not to brine them and made up a rub of garlic powder, poultry seasoning, Tony's Cajun seasoning and a little Chipotle powder to give it a kick. Cook temperature was 250-275 degrees and I spritzed them with apple juice and turned them over on the hour. Four hours later they reached my target internal temperature of 180 degrees. They turned out great!I love the ham flavor and appearance the meat has. Here is the q-view before I removed them from the smoker and foiled them to rest.
