    Turkey is always a craving for both children and parents, let alone smoked turkey drumsticks. While most people find them at amusement parks or county fairs, you can now cook these delicious smoked turkey legs at home, thanks to this amazing recipe.

    To add a more succulent flavour to this dish, we are going to soak the turkey legs in a brine solution for 12 hours
