Turkey Legs & Ribs

Ribs and turkey legs from yesterday.  No leftovers...as usual.  Cooked everything at 250 for about 5 hours using hickory chunks and RO lump.  Wrapped the legs for the last hour.

    Have found the turkey legs are very good in a pot of beans as well.

    were the turkey legs done prior to them being wrapped? They're on my to do list, but I would have guessed 2 hrs at 250* would have been adequate.

    I have found it's hard to over-cook turkey legs.  The longer I cook them, those long tendons render out more.  I wrapped them for the last hour because the ribs were not ready yet.  I never did check the temp of the legs.

    I like turkey legs. 400 direct and raised about an hour and a quarter. Rubbed with Butt Rub or Coffee Rub and pecan/cherry chips ( not a lot).

    I had a smoke turkey drumstick at the fair. I enjoyed it, but...... I know I can do it better. :)
    Waiting to see turkey parts on sale.

    ^^^ finding the legs can be hit or miss and finding them on
    sale is even tougher.  I first had them at a renaissance festival
    and enjoy doing them on the BBQ.
