  • Re: State Fair Giant Turkey Legs...

    I've never had a bad one.... I'd say he blew it in a major way. I've brined them, not brined them and they always turn out pretty good. The seasoning is important. I love salt and pepper so I'm not sure what your tastes are... but most of the time, the turkey legs come out of the smoker tasting similar to ham with a heavy smokey flavor. I usually use hickory, but found some Peach wood and it was quite delicious. A little dab of Cayenne pepper dusted on the outside is a treat! You want a dark mahogany colored skin that is very dry and crispy.... Good luck!
