Smoked Turkey Drumsticks #SundaySupper

smoked turkey leg
When I see a picture of a turkey leg, I immediately think of Henry VIII. Talk about Man Food!

Look at these beauties! They even come with “handles”! ;)

I chose to roast these turkey legs but I could have just as easily cooked them on the stovetop. Cooking in liquid reduces some of the saltiness that comes along with the smoking process. Smoked cuts of meat like leg portions from turkey or pig shanks and “hocks” can be covered with water or broth and simmered until done. I cook mine until the meat starts to fall off the bone and the internal temperature is at least 145. This temperature is for roasting too.
You really don’t need to do anything to the meat itself. Serve smoked turkey drumsticks with a dipping sauce like BBQ or a spicy mustard. Yes a cold beer wouldn’t hurt either!

  40. Lmao, whenever I see a turkey leg, my mind automatically goes back to medieval times where they’d have crazy debaucherous banquets and all the men would be gnawing on giant animal legs. You crack me up, Cindy. This is the epitome of man food. It looks absolutely fantastic!
