Festival Turkey Legs

Festival Turkey Legs

Introduction

This is supposed to be the authentic recipe used by turkey leg vendors at fairs and festivals. Boiling the turkey legs first may seem like cheating but, if you have to make thousands of them you won't want them sitting on your grill for 20 to 30 minutes before you can sell them selling.

  • I didn't boil it-- I marinated it and seasoned it, then grilled it until it was browned then wrapped it up in foil and let it cook on the grill low for an hour. Yummy! FYI 1 Turkey drumstick is not 56.7 calories. One medium drumstick is 424.3 calories. Here is the full nutritional information h - 6/7/12
