I was given a couple legs last evening from a neighbor with a too full freezer and leaving town for a week. Now what do I do with them?
They're skinned and "cleaned" a bit, obviously, but is there any specific further prep that needs to be done? Silver skin or trimming? that kind of thing? It's still bone in, do I need to bone it and tie it up?
They are buried under a big bunch of ice so haven't spent a lo of time with them just yet.
And beyond that, how about cooking them? I've read a hot cook for as little as an hour and a half. Then others, like above, that say 225 for a good long smoke.
Do I shoot for a rare/medium/well target or does this cut need to by done through and through like an 8 hour cook or something?
ANY help with these "things" (lol) would be greatly appreciated. I've gotta get 'em in the box today at some point, he needs his cooler back!
