    majorkwoods's Note:

    We love the turkey legs they serve at the local Flea Market, the Colorado Rennaissance Festival and at our theme parks, so we sought out the recipe and now use this excellent version to indulge in that tasty finger [hand] food.This is supposedly the authentic recipe used by turkey leg vendors at fairs and festivals. Boiling the turkey legs first may seem like cheating but if you have to make thousands of them to sell you don't want to have them sitting on your grill for 20 to 30 minutes before you sell them. Original recipe from the website. For easy serving, after grilling, wrap the bottom end of the legs in aluminum foil and a napkin or paper towel to make a great "holder".

      It was not what I expected. I thought that the sweetness from the boil would disappear it's needs salt. I feel that I wasted my turkey legs.

      We thought these were just awful! The smell from the boiling pot made us cough and wheeze and then the turkey legs were too spicy on the outside and way too dry on the inside. I followed the recipe just as told so I know it's not me. I'm sorry but I would not make these again

      We thought these were so-so. I made them as written with the exception of grilling them over an open fire. I wasn't sure what steak seasoning was and shook on some Canadian Style Steak Seasoning I had on hand. I would haave to agree with Lvs2Cook that smoking the legs would be an improvement.
