Ingredients Needed

  1. 3 turkey legs
  2. cup (120 ml) olive oil
  3. cup (80 ml) red wine vinegar
  4. 3 cloves garlic
  5. 1 tablespoon (15 ml) lemon juice

Cooking Instructions

Put the turkey legs in a big resealable plastic bag.

Mix everything else together.

Reserve some marinade for basting and pour the rest into the bag, press the air out of the bag, and turn the bag a few times to coat.

Stash in the fridge and let the turkey legs marinate for several hours.

Okay, it's cooking time! Get a charcoal or gas grill going; you'll want a medium fire.

Pour the marinade off.

Add the wood chips or chunks to the grill.

Smoke the legs over indirect heat in a closed grill.

Baste every 15 minutes or so with the reserved marinade, using a clean utensil each time you baste.

Turn and then close the grill again.

They'll take about an hour.

Serving Yield

3 servings, 1 leg per person

Nutrition Information

Even if you used all the marinade you'd get only 3 grams of carbohydrate per serving, with a trace of fiber. As it is, I'd count no more than 2 grams, and maybe 1. About 47 grams of protein - it depends on the size of you legs!
