The local supermarkets here in CT have low inventory of Turkey Drumsticks.

So I asked our butcher if he could order some.
Said that he could, but, it was 30lbs per box.
Figured what the heck I can keep them frozen and use as needed.

Never thought that the 30lb box would contain only 15 drumsticks  Shocked



Letting some defrost for a weekend cook.

Will post pictures of them in an edible state.

You can start a renaissance fair, I have great memories of my 4 kids as young as 5 years old every year walking the fair in Charlotte gnawing on smoked turkey legs  - Love smoked turkey legs

Those will be good!  Can't believe they made you buy a case!

They are closed minded idiots (did I just say that?? YEP!) and they can't see the usefulness of other types of cookers.

I've been tempted to buy turkey legs for grilling/smoking but never did. After being deboned that should make for a delicious turkey gumbo. Just need some good andouille.
I hate the pin bones in turkey legs.

Are you sure he didn't just wrap a bone in ham with some chicken skin? That's huge.

Since I had 6 of these monsters to cook I thought I would do a comparison with 3 of my smokers/cookers.  Keg 4000, MES40 and a Cook Chef Pellet.
All cooked at 250° with hickory smoke.  Cook times were between 2.5 hrs and 3.25 hrs. The Pellet took the least time, then the MES40 and then the KEG.



And here are the start and finish of each.

The Keg

   

The MES40

 

The Camp Chef Pellet

   

All tasted great and were moist.

The Pellet had the best color, the MES40 most smoke taste and moister and the Keg came in third.

My official reviewers gave a thumbs up to all six. (the little guy ate the whole 2lb drumstick)

Did you find the skin tough? I've done them before and the skin was very tough.

Skin from the pellet was crispy...the other two had moist skin but was not tough.

The drumsticks were marinated in Wishbone Italian for 2 days, (used the large brinner bucket that Jason recommended).  Took 1 gal. of fluid to cover the six.

Then drained the drumsticks and seasoned with a little celery salt, rubbed with Texas Brothers Bar-B-Que Dry Rub and a few shakes of Paprika.

Let sit an hour then into cook.

I've found the same. My wife asked that I not make them again because of it.

Looking at yours Laryy I know I didn't do them right
