State Fair Turkey Legs

State Fair Turkey Legs

2 liters lemon-lime soda
2 tablespoons sugar
2 tablespoons hot sauce
2 tablespoons crushed red pepper flakes
1 tablespoon black pepper
1 Vidalia onion, chopped
1 tablespoon House Seasoning, recipe follows
3 tablespoons honey
4 turkey legs

Preheat grill. Combine all ingredients, except the
House Seasoning and honey, in a large stock pot and
bring to a low boil. Add turkey legs and boil for 30
minutes or until the turkey legs register 165 degrees
F. Put turkey legs on the grill, season with House
Seasoning and brush with honey. Grill over medium heat
for about 15 minutes, rotating occasionally as needed.
The turkey legs should be crispy and golden brown when

House Seasoning:
1 cup table salt
1/4 cup pepper
1/4 cup garlic powder

Mix the ingredients together and store in an air-tight
container for up to 6 months. Use as a seasoning on
meat and when cooking vegetables.

When I don't have access to a grill I put the legs on the oven rack(with the oven preheated on 350) with a drip pan underneath.
