Smoked wild turkey

  1. I tagged out in 4 days this year (a jake and a tom).  Also cut 4 legs off 2 turkeys my friend shot since he doesn't bother.  With 8 turkey legs, I figured I'd break away from just making soup with the legs and try smoking it with a breast.  I wrote up the story of the smoke and the results in another thread: http://www.smokingmeatforums.com/t/121651/pain-in-the-butt-but-still-tasted-good

    Short story:  although the legs were tasty and moist, they were tough.  Future legs will be soup.  The breast was very good.
