I was browsing the meat aisle of the grocery store and saw that Turkey Legs were on sale. My first instinct was to BBQ them, since everything tastes so much better on the grill. If I owned a deep fryer, that would be even better, but I don’t. It’s been 100 degrees outside and not so pleasant to stand outside and barbecue, so I went to my back up plan.
When in doubt, use the crock pot.
I added a whole bottle (yes a whole bottle!) of barbecue sauce, and then to give it a little kick, about 3/4 cup of Frank’s Red Hot Sauce. I added about 1/4 cup of water and stirred it up. I wished I would have put some onions or fresh garlic in to spice it up some more. Place the turkey legs in. Give it about five hours on low heat.
I was worried it was going to be dry, but the barbecue really holds in a lot of the juices. When I put the leg on a plate, I took some more of the sauce and put it over the top.
Love how flaky it came out. Crock pots rule. For a girl who didn’t own one until about five years ago, I was missing out!
Question: I’m in desperate need of recipes with turkey. Do you have any suggestions?
