This Is the recipe my daughter Briana uses to cook her smoked turkey legs. Personally I had never made them on the grill until she shared this recipe with me. I must say they sure are very tasty. I think next time I will quarter some potatoes & add to the vegetables, because the broth really does add lots of flavor to the vegetables.
Some of the Food Fests sell these tasty turkey legs, & I don't know how they make theirs but these certainly are flavorful. JUST REMEMER TO LOOK OUT FOR THE SML BONES. I like to pull all the meat away from the bone & remove ALL of the bones first before eating.
1Add turkey legs to a large pot, cover with water and add in spices to season water. Cover pot with lid, bring to a boil, then simmer until legs become somewhat tender. NOTE: DEPENDING ON WHERE YOU BUY THE SMOKED LEGS FROM, SOME BRANDS TAKES A LOT LONGER TO COOK THAN OTHERS. BRIANA PREFER TO GET THE ONE THAT ARE CRYOVAC PACKAGES FROM WALMART, WHICH TAKES LESS TIME TO COOK.
2Once tender, remove the legs from the water, and add to a large 9X12 size disposable aluminum pan. Add in the chopped veggies.
3Pull the outer skin of the legs back and brush with softened butter, then pull the outer skin back over the legs. SPRINKLE LEGS with additional seasoning, garlic powder, onion powder, and steak seasoning.
4Pour about 1 1/2-2 cups of the turkey liquid over the veggies. Then cover the pan tightly with foil.Place pan on hot grill and allow to cook until vegetables are tender, about and hour or so.
5If desired remove legs from pan and place directly on grill grate, and alow the outer skin of the turkey lgs to get crispy on the outside, about 15-20 minutes, or so or as desired. The vegetables in the pan are outstanding with all the flavors from the turkey.
