Those look great! Is there a trick to keeping the skin from shrinking up the leg? I have only done them twice, and both times the skin shrunk up, leaving some bone showing on the end. They were really good, but I really like the looks of those! Do you brine yours?

Turkey legs are great. They work great at family get togethers with kids. I can never pass them up when I see them. They are also great left over straight out of the frige.

Always gotta brine them...

brine I use is half cup Kosher salt, 1-1/2 cups brown sugar, tablespoon garlic (grainular), and 2 cups of BBQ sauce to every gallon of apple juice. Dissolve the stuff first in warm water, then add it to cold AJ. Brine 12-24 hours.

most use some kind of rub, but i just season with garlic granules and some cayenne.... then I cookem at 275 for about 3 hours, remove at 175, foil them and rest for about 30 minutes(temps climb).. They fall off the bone.
