Smokin' Turkey Legs

I was trying to recreate the Disney World style turkey legs. These are awesome, but I do not have a smoker, so it did lack that intense smokey flavor, but these were full of ton of flavor.

  • 1 (2 liter) bottle of diet ginger ale

  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice

  • 1 tablespoon lime juice

  • 2 packets splenda

  • 2 Tablespoons hot sauce

  • 1 Tablespoon red pepper flakes

  • 1 large vadalia onion, sliced thick

  • 4 large turkey legs

  • 2 Tablespoons SF BBQ sauce

  • poultry seasoning

Add first 8 ingredients to a large pot. Boil turkey for about 30-40 minutes, or until internal temp is 180. Preheat broiler to 400 degrees. Remove turkey and take out onions. Lay onions on a baking sheet, and lay turkey legs on top. Add BBQ sauce and poultry seasoning to both sides of the turkey leg. Broil for 15 minutes, then turn legs, and broil for another 15 minutes.

These ingredients sound weird together, but this is a very different and flavorful dish.
