    Casey's BBQ's Note:

    ! DO NOT ATTEMPT IF YOU DO NOT HAVE A STOVE TOP SMOKER! This is a great sweet tasting turkey. Every one I have ever made this for has loved it--even people that do not like turkey or just don't like dark meat!

    Ingredients:

    Servings:

    Units: US | Metric

    • 4 turkey legs
    • 4 tablespoons dry rub seasonings
    • 1/4 cup apple juice
    • 4 tablespoons wood chips

    Directions:

    1. 1
      USE Maple, Apple, and or Cherry Wood Chips.
    2. 2
      Clean the legs under cold water. Pat legs dry cover legs in dry rub. Store in refrigerator for approximately 2 hours.
    3. 3
      Take legs out of refrigerator add a mixture of dry rub and 1/4 cup of apple juice. Pour over legs and refrigerate for another 22 hours, flipping the legs every 2-4 hours to marinate the legs evenly. You don't have to wake up and take care of them overnight.
    4. 4
      Set up your stove top smoker with 1/2 the wood chips. Place the turkey legs on the rack leaving as much space between each leg as possible and not touching the sides.
    5. 5
      Close the lid tightly and place over medium heat for 1 hour.
    6. 6
      Carefully open the top--do not burn yourself--remove legs.
    7. 7
      Put additional wood chips in, making sure when you put the turkey legs back in to have them flipped over from where they were when originally cooked; close smoker.
    8. 8
      Cook for the remaining hour on medium heat.
    9. 9
      Let cool down a bit. Served warm or cold, it is such a treat--the sweet taste of home smoked turkey!
