Turkey Legs Tonight

  1. So I decided I would smoke some turkey legs tonight.

    Got up this morning and made brine for the turkey legs.

    Sorry no picture of that. After soaking in the brine for about

    6 hours, I took them out and rinsed them off then pulled skin back

    and Rubbed them with a poultry rub I found on the internet.

    3 Tbs onion powder

    2 Tbs paprika

    1 Tbs garlic powder

    1 tsp course ground pepper

    1 tsp ground cumin

    1/2 tsp rubbed sage


    Then pulled skin back up and over legs and used a light coat of

    Butterball's Cajun Rub.


    Then just to try something different for me, I put some alder pellets in 

    my amnps. and now just let them cook. [​IMG]

  2. And now for the final showing.


    Very good legs. Juicy tender, and a great taste also.

    I will use this rub again.

    Thanks for lookin'

    This is relevant to my interests. I have 8 legs in brine right now. Never thought to season under the skin like they. Looks awesome.
