BBQ Turkey Drumsticks

Summer is officially here and if you haven't already, it's time to turn on that grill. I'd love to share with you a favourite around here - BBQ Turkey Drumsticks! Visit Turkey Farmers of Canada for all the nutritional and preparation info you need for every cut of turkey, and some amazing recipes too!

Recipe

Step 1:
In a pot combine..
  • 4C water
  • 1/4C sugar
  • 1/4C brown sugar
  • 1/4C kosher salt
  • 1-1/2t seasoning (we like Canada's own CattleBoyz Smokin' and Grillin' Rub or their Smokey Southwest Seasoning & Rub)
 
 


Bring to a boil then let cool.

Step 2:
Put 2-4 turkey legs in the brine and store in the fridge for 6+ hours.




Step 3:
Pat drumsticks dry, put a seasoning rub on them (we used CattleBoyz here again)



Step 4:
BBQ on med-low heat for approx. 45 minutes - 1 hour 15 minutes. Or BBQ med-high with the drums wrapped in foil. As drum sizes can vary, it’s always best to check doneness by ensuring the internal temperature has reached 165F (74C) using a digital thermometer.



Looking to feed a crowd? Just double or triple the brine and you are good to go!


Family Thoughts:


Everyone loves these huge drumsticks. They taste great, are fun to eat and hold, fun party food and summer BBQ's.
