4 pounds turkey legs ((4 turkey legs))


4 cups cool water
2 bay leaves
¼ cup dark brown sugar
1 Tablespoon kosher salt
1 Tablespoon whole black peppercorns
1 teaspoon Prague powder #1 (curing salt)


Make the curing liquid by dissolving the salt, brown sugar, and curing salt (Prague powder) in cool water. Stir in the black peppercorns and the bay laves.

Place the turkey legs in a gallon zip top bag, and pour the curing liquid over the legs. Put the bag on a place and cure for 24 hours in the refrigerator.

Remove the turkey legs from the refrigerator and take the legs out of the brine. Give them a quick rinse under cool water and pat them dry.

Preheat your smoker to 225 degrees F. Place your turkey legs directly on the smoker. Close the lid and smoke the turkey legs for 1 1/2 hours or until the internal temperature of the legs reaches 175 degrees F.

Remove the turkey legs from the smoker, and dig in!INGREDIENTS
