In this video, I cook wild turkey legs for the first time. I personally do not know anyone who uses the legs from their wild turkey harvests. This video was an experiment but it is also educational! This was one of my favorite wild game recipes I have created so far.

  1. Awesome video buddy. Looked delicious. And thats a great BBQ sauce. Just curious as to why the legs aren’t usually used?, are they different tasting on wild turkeys?

  2. you sir are speaking my language! looks legit- im in. subscribed look forward to more videos on your channel- cheers

  3. That’s how you do it my friend good video!. My son in laws mom gets upset if you dont save the thighs and my grandmother always slow cooked wild Turkey thighs down. Good memories for sure. Thxs for reminding me of old times.

  4. Man that looked delicious nothing like a BBQ sandwich especially on some homemade bread! I’ve tried cooking up some wild turkey legs, they was good but tuff. The way you done it definitely looks like the way to go, thanks for sharing and congratulations on your channel success that’s awesome brother!

  5. Very good👍. I’ve always been a pull the breast out fella too. I think you’ve convinced me to change my ways. Looks really good!
