Default Vending Turkey legs??

I was thinking about vending bbq turkey legs for an upcoming concert in the park. What do you guys think? are they a money maker? at the fair out here in orange county they did well. Not sure if restaurant depot carries them. Any thoughts

thanks in advance

RD doesn't carry them. It would have to be a special order.

I tried vending some El Grande 2# turkey legs a few years ago and lost my A$$. Could have been time of year - a couple of weeks before Thanksgiving. Cooked 'em on site...they were pretty fine -- finally started giving them away just to keep from throwing them away.

They are a good product and Disney sells a ton of them...just depends on the day and crowd.
