I love turkey legs.  This was a fun recipe to use for those of us who like things spicy.  Use your favorite hot sauce that is about to expire and needs to be used up.



-Cider vinegar

-2 cloves garlic

-Spicy peppers (I used long hots)

-Lots of hot sauce

-Turkey legs


Slice the hot peppers and garlic.  Make a brine using water, salt, and a large dash of vinegar.  Add the peppers and garlic.  Marinate the legs in the brine overnight.  Discard the brine.  Add enough hot sauce to coat the legs.  Marinate overnight again.  Smoke at 250 for 3 hours.  Flip.  Keep cooking another 2-3 hours or until the legs hit 180.  Enjoy.


-Enjoy your week.
