So I had made turkey legs before and they didnt turn out so good. This time I was making them for my parents and husband so I knew they had to impress...this recepie definetly did. My dad gave it a 5 out of 5 and thats good since he can cook. I didnt add the green pepper and I left out the chili powder since my dad just had his gallbladder removed. Since I didnt have chicken boullion I subbed chicken brooth and didnt use water. It turned out great and I will definetly make again, Im gana try chicken next time just to try but turkey legs will be done again. Thanks

I didn't have any green peppers on hand so I had to leave them out. For my BBQ sauce, I used Sweet Baby's sweet and spicy. My turkey legs turned out tender and with lots of flavor. This recipe is a keeper. Thanks for another great recipe!

I'm not a huge fan of the "turkey drumstick", but I had to cook the ones I had and this recipe did a fine job of that! I don't think I will use the green pepper next time. it just seemed 'out-of-place' but the turkey fell off the bone so I will try again with chicken and re-review. Thanks Kittencal! What would we (amateurs) do without chefs like you? Thank you!
