BBQ Turkey Legs



This is a recipe my boyfriend has perfected. He made it for a party that he threw for his skills instructors because he runs an EMS program at the local community college. This is a compilation of many recipes found online so I am giving him credit for it.


2 liter lemon lime soda

1 TBS crushed red pepper

1 TBS black pepper

2 TBS hot sauce

1 onion, sliced

Turkey legs


Light your BBQ for direct heat cooking. Add first 5 ingredients together in a large stock pot and bring to a boil. Add the turkey legs and cook, uncovered for 45 minutes or until the meat reaches a temperature of 180 degrees. Remove onions and place on the BBQ to create a bed for the legs, add turkey legs on the BBQ with direct heat and lid on. Coat with honey. Cook until there is a nice char on the meat.
