These bird legs have been a favorite of family barbeques for years. Not only are they incredibly flavorful, but they’re fun to eat!When preparing this dish, I like to imagine myself as a knight at the Round Table in King Arthur’s days of glory, spinning yarns of battle, rejoicing in the fellowship of my brothers, singing songs of the land, dancing, consuming goblets of brew and recklessly devouring one handful after another of these gargantuan grilled turkey legs.Okay, I think you get the idea.Before my imagination runs upon another wild tangent, this grilled bird is a perfect alternative to the classic stuffed, dry roasted, flavorless, cardboard-tasting, over-baked bird in the oven. This fool-proof turkey recipe is both incredibly delicious and a huge time-saver when compared to a traditional roasted bird. Following a swim in brine, these legs will be from grill grates to guests’ plates in less than two hours. That will leave plenty of time for partaking in song, dance and beverage consumption amongst fellow kinsman!This recipe starts with a traditional brine, soaking the turkey legs overnight in a solution of salt, water and sugar. After brining, the dry rub is liberally applied and the turkey is brought to fire where it is seared over intense direct heat. Then, the bird legs are set to rest upon alder planks, over indirect heat, where in the final minutes of grilling a honey glaze is applied, caramelizing over the crisp exterior skin of the bird legs. This sweet honey glaze brings full circle the natural juicy, salty and smoky flavor of the turkey, with the bold, spicy seasonings of the dry rub.
