DIRECTIONS

  • This is my version that worked well for us. I brine for 24 hours. Heat your smoker to 220 degrees with real charcoal chunks. Add your favorite wood chips if you like. We then smoke the legs until done, it's about 4 hours for nice sized legs. The turkey comes out with a nice "hammy" texture. They may not be exactly like the theme park turkey legs but sure comes close enough for us.
  • Heat 1/2 gallon of water or stock to a boil to dissolve the salt, brown sugar and base if using.
  • Allow to cool to room temperature.
  • Add to your brine pot along with 1 gallon of ice water and brine for 24 hours.
  • ***Note: Apple wood or Cherry wood chips are a sweeter milder smoke than Hickory wood.
