I remember that someone hear says that they buy Pre-smoked Turkey Legs at Restaurant Depot. I called the one in St. Louis and the meat market guy couldn't tell me much, other than they are $1.51 a pound.

For anyone who uses or have used them: How many pounds average, per leg? How do YOU heat them up - smoker or grill?

Any other thoughts that might be helpful would be appreciated. I am doing a vending gig at a local event in May and no one else will be selling these...

Thanks, Roger. How much time/attention do you have to pay to the raw ones? This is a one day, 8 hour event.

None I brined them and put rub on and threw them on. Cooked them with turkeys for thanksgiving and every one loved them
It all depends on how many you are serving. They go through alot at Renn fest and the guy said he tried both ways and that reheating them is the best for him and they tasted good.

I like to do mine hot at about 400 or more till they reach an internal of 175 to 180 used to brine but now am trying the dry brine I found here and they are just as moist and much easier to do

I've done whole turkeys with a dry brine and it rocks! Essentially it is salt (1 tablespoon for every 4-5lbs) and your choice of herbs and spices (ground spices and herbs) placed under the skin of the bird. Let set in the fridge for 2 days wrapped in plastic, rinse the salt off and cook till done. IMHO it is far better than doing a wet brine.
