A guy I used to work with made these by the case. I think all he used was salt, brown sugar, garlic and Tender Quick. He would get a couple cases of turkey legs, brine and smoke them and sell them at Flea Markets and fairs in the area. It was funny going to the flea market and seeing all the people walking around munching on turkey legs. They were good.

Yes it really is. I use to go to the flea Market here and I would buy 3 to go and take them in my lunch. Loved them. I think mine is a little better. Plus never dried to much.

Looks good. Not sure about ham brine but should work. As far as weight. I set a plate on mine.

Being that I couldn't find the salt...this was my only option.  I have about 15 more legs that I can test at a later date.

Thank you.  I will compare it with what they use for their Ham Cure.

Foiled again  >:(

I made these before and loved them and I planned on making them to go along with some pulled pork for Labor Day. I remembered the 48hrs in Brine and when I went to review this recipe this morning to make the Brine I realized that the Legs I had bought fell into the 3 day category.  ??? Yeah I could freeze these things raw and hunt Grizzly Bear with them. They are HUGE!  :o

Oh well looks like 2 x Buts for Monday instead of 1 and I am gonna brine the Legs to be smoked on Wednesday, so they can be Mine ALL Mine  ;)

Well a 24 hour soak may work just always did them longer. But their always a winner here.

I only soaked them for 3 hours and they were still good.

For turkey legs; 3 - 6 hours should be fine, unless you have a very low salt brine.

I bought a case of large "Tom" turkey legs and brined some of them for the time recommended in Viper's recipe for the large legs. Very good although too salty. I will back off on the brine time with the next batch. After smoking I vacuum packed some of them for a quick and easy meal when time's short. Always good to have a supply of these. Thanks Viper, this one's a keeper.
