BBQ Turkey Legs



This is a recipe my boyfriend has perfected. He made it for a party that he threw for his skills instructors (pictured above) because he runs an EMS program at the local community college. This is a compilation of many recipes found online so it is now his.


  • 2 liter lemon lime soda
  • 1 TBS crushed red pepper
  • 1 TBS black pepper
  • 2 TBS hot sauce
  • 1 onion, sliced
  • Turkey legs


Light your BBQ for direct heat cooking. Add first 5 ingredients together in a large stock pot and bring to a boil. Add the turkey legs and cook, uncovered for 45 minutes or until the meat reaches a temperature of 180 degrees. Remove onions and place on the BBQ to create a bed for the legs, add turkey legs on the BBQ with direct heat and lid on. Coat with honey. Cook until there is a nice char on the meat.
