I have been to Disney World Florida more times than I can count when I was a kid and once with my eldest daughter Lexi and my parents. One of my fondest memories besides spending time with family was the Giant Turkey legs. If you ever go make sure to stop and get one. It will be enough to feed at least 2 people. You will feel like a carnivorous Neanderthal while chowing down on one. You won’t care. They are that good. Every time I think of juicy delicious turkey legs my memories take me back to Disney World.
I did my best to recreate those turkey legs on the BGE. I used Clubhouse brand Montreal Chicken seasoning with a dash of poultry seasoning as well. I generously seasoned the legs and placed them on the BGE with some pecan wood chips and a drip pan underneath. I kept them low at about 225F and I went back a couple of times and basted them with the juices. They were not exactly as I remembered but they were juicy and delicious. It was really fun to tell my kids I was serving them dinosaur birds. Much more fun than telling them they were eating turkey.
The BGE performed nicely. As it was the first cook I got to experience how little charcoal it takes. Overall the BGE did terrific and I was really pleased with the ease of cooking on it.
