I've yet to cook turkey legs. They're so inexpensive---I've got to try them soon. This recipe in Alton Brown's "Feasting On Asphalt - The River Run," was inspired by a dish at Melanie's Soul Food in north Memphis.

Very good way to cook the plain smoked turkey leg! We enjoyed these so much- especially the sauce. I didn't use "hot"- I used honey bar-b-que but kept everything else the same. Thank You-
- 4 smoked turkey legs
- 1 tablespoon seasoning salt
- 1 cup hot barbecue sauce
- 1 tablespoon dark brown sugar
- 1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice

- Preheat the oven to 450°F.
- Place the legs in a 13x9-inch baking pan and sprinkle with the seasoned salt.
- Pour 1 cup of water into the bottom of the pan and cover tightly with aluminum foil. Bake on the middle rack of the oven for 1 hour.
- After 1 hour, gently uncover the pan and turn the legs over. Continue to bake for another hour.

- Combine the barbecue sauce, brown sugar, and lemon juice in a medium saucepan over high heat and bring to a boil. Remove from the heat and glaze the turkey legs with the sauce.
