My BIG FAT Grain Free Life: Smoked BBQ Turkey Legs

Smoked BBQ Turkey Legs

Easy...Delicious...Cheap Economical.  

My daughter loved this so much - she asked me to make it again for dinner the following night.   

Don't be intimidated by smoking chips.  I buy mine from Walmart (foodies can still shop there) in the outdoor area where grills are sold.  I like these smoking chips because they are in small pieces and easy to work with.

This dish would be wonderful served up with Paula Deen's The Lady's Coleslaw recipe.  It's our favorite coleslaw  - not dripping in mayo, crisp and fresh.  I would use a mayo that's "safe" for our diets and substitute honey for the sugar.  

I hope you enjoy this as much as we do!

Smoked BBQ Turkey Legs 

turkey legs
extra virgin olive oil
sea salt & pepper

hickory or mesquite smoking chips
Just Peachy Barbecue Sauce 

Prepare grill:  Take a long sheet of tin foil.  Fill the center lengthwise with smoking chips.  Wrap up smoking chips and poke large holes in foil.  Turn all grill burners to high and place packet of smoking chips on back burner.  Allow grill to preheat for 15 minutes.  Chips should be smoking.

Rub turkey legs with olive oil.  Then salt and pepper on both sides.  Place turkey legs on grill.  Keep the burner with the packet of smoking chips on high.  Turn other burners to low.  Close lid on grill and cook for 30 minutes.

Brush with Just Peachy BBQ Sauce.  Turn, brush with more sauce, and cook another 30 minutes.  Serve with extra sauce on the side.
