Traeger Tailgating: Injected Drunken Smoked Turkey Legs

Posted by Mary M. on November 9, 2013

Traeger Tailgating: Drunken Smoked Turkey Legs

The #1 requirement for tailgating (or any football game, for that matter) is MEAT. The spicier, the smokier, the bourbony-er, the better. You want a hunk of meat with a convenient handle that you can tear into like a shark on Shark Week. Your wish is our command. We give you Drunken Smoked Turkey Legs. After a leisurely soak in a bourbon/brown sugar/hot sauce bath, we give the turkey legs a good smoke to seal in all of that deeply developed flavor. The end result is a tailgating eat that will be the envy of every face painted fan in the stadium.


PREP TIME: 15 minutes, plus marinate for 24 hours
COOK TIME: 1 1/2 to 3 hours


1 bottle of Franks Red Hot Sauce
1 stick butter
1 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup whiskey or bourbon
3 minced garlic cloves
1 teaspoon Traeger Cajun Shake (optional)
6 large turkey legs
Traeger Meat Injector


Mix together all of the ingredients except the turkey legs in a pot and bring to a boil.

Let cool and pour the marinade into a plastic bag and add in the turkey legs. Allow them to marinate for 24 hours in the fridge.

The next day, take the turkey legs out of the bag but save the marinade. Bring half of it to a boil (to kill off bacteria) and reserve it for basting. Dilute the other half with 1/2 cup of chicken stock and use along with the Meat Injector to really infuse flavor.

Fill the meat injector with the marinade/chicken stock mixture and insert it into the meaty parts of the turkey leg in several places and inject with the marinade until it plumps up.

Start the Traeger on Smoke with the lid open until the fire is established (4 to 5 minutes). Set the temperature to 250 degrees F and preheat, lid closed, for 10 to 15 minutes. Place the turkey legs on the grill grate and cook for 1 1/2 to 3 hours, depending on the thickness of the legs, or until the internal temp registers 165 degrees F on an instant-read thermometer.

Baste the legs with the reserved, boiled marinade every 45 minutes.

Now this may seem tough and so you can opt for the second possibility whereby you re-string a guitar. A very high percentage of the guitar playing community has NOT invested much time into developing their guitar phrasing abilities. It's very important that your wrists as well as hands are relaxed.

They get the kind of adrenaline rush from cheating on their mates that they'd get from participating in skydiving or other high risk sports. Therefore, people completely rely on the broadcasting media or print media to get latest news about the political news or international news.

In a two- to three-bedroom house, this small heat pump is good enough to provide hot water any time of the day. Of course not allowing the submersible pumps to run dry will be a big bonus in keeping the longevity of the pump. Then the piston or diaphragm moves forward decreasing the volume of the chamber and pressure inside the chamber increase, this opens the outlet valve and the liquid from inside the chamber is pushed outside in the discharge line until the differential pressure is zero.

A big problem is in the design of the trainers is cheap rollers that roll on tracks along the ground and collect dirt over time, resulting in a bumpy and uneven ride. If you have fine lines around your eyes, mouth, and forehead, you should look for cosmetics with light-reflecting particles. Such machines are perfect for people like this because they offer them a total body workout which takes full advantage of the time available for exercising.

The teams have moved on from the paper and process driven approach to the technology ridden system that is not only used by them, but across the entire organization. The leader of the line must run around as fast as possible while others try and hold on. This is also PART of the reason why English is a compulsory subject (because the HSC scaling process relies on having a common subject taken by all HSC students as a sort of 'parametric variable' to enable comparison).
