Brined Turkey Legs

It has been a while since I checked in, but I'm still eggin'.

My last cook, last week, was a pair of thick ribeyes that were fantastic!  My wife was very impressed, and so I am a happy guy.  Tomorrow I will cook some turkey legs and thighs that I have just put in a mild salt & sugar brine.  Never done brined turkey before, but the brined chicken I did earlier this year was 'the best ever'.  I have attached photos of the ribeye and the turkey legs in brine, looks like a high school science exhibit (cow's eye), or a mad scientist lab...
no, not -that- one!


  • Not sure I could do the glass jar, it is science classish.

    good luck

  • Turkey Drumsticks and Thighs on the Big Green Egg today was a success from the perspective of a delicious, moist, tender version of turkey.  But I like the oven turkey better!  This was a brined turkey experiment, over lump charcoal, and my wife thought the thigh was very good.  I was less impressed by my drumstick.  It was tender and moist, sure, but I missed some flavour that I was expecting...not quite like oven turkey.  I read an article about brining that mentioned that...  Maybe that was it.  Or maybe after I get past the smoke in my nose while cooking I will be more able to taste what I am after.
    no, not -that- one!
