I always was a thigh man! One of my best!

I saw a show where the chef deboned a turkey, leg-thigh combo and knew that I had to give that a try and it turned out fantastic!

I went to a farmers market and picked up a fresh leg-thigh and took my time to debone it.

Then I decided to stuff it with a ground lamb mix. I started with ground lamb seasoned like sausage and added an egg and some sun-dried tomatoes.

Then I sauteed some shiitake mushrooms and shallots with garlic and used that to stuff the leg-thigh combo.

I shaped the leftover lamb into a loaf like a fattie and cooked them both on my small with some pecan for flavor.

    Thanks for the comments folks! This really turned out good and there is nothing hard about it if you have a reasonably sharp knife and take your time.

    The lamb fattie was something I am going to do again too.

    Did some turkey legs,indirect heat at 250% for 4 hrs. Got internal to 140 than wrapped in foil for 2 more hrs. to finish. Moist, juicy and wife loved them.

    Thanks, Bob. I was curious because I cooked a stuffed boned out chicken to 170, and thought it was a bit overdone. Will try 160 next time.

    I tried fixing turkey legs in college as I was poor, but I had neither a sharp knife, nor any patience, and ate more oatmeal until I graduated. Beautiful, clean job you did!
