Daring Disney legs – Spicy Mango Kalkoen drumsticks
So you’ve heard from that little park called Disneyland? As it seems their Turkey Legs are legend… Or is it a fairy tail after all? Those who had the chance to taste them will tell me right away. I hadn’t but I was curious for these badass looking drumsticks. Not the traditional ones since I didn’t taste them yet but a personal BBQ Bastard version: “The Daring Disney Legs”. No pink girly stuff here. Pour yourself some whisky and use the rest to make the Mango/ginger flavored Daring Disney Sauce used as glaze for these killer Turkey drums. Killer in taste yet somewhat hard to eat if you ask me. Cause how awesome they look to eat with your hands… The sinews make it rather hard to rip the flesh of with your teeth. I prefer cutting the meat to remove the tendons. Don’t know about you?

- 2 Turkey Drumsticks
- 5 Tbsp Daring Disney Sauce recipe in instructions below
- 150 gr salt
- 2 l water
- 1 el oregano
- 1 el thyme
- 1 el paprika powder
- 1 thumb grated ginger
Mix all brine ingredients until the salt is absorbed by the water.
Put the drumsticks in the brine for at least 4 hours (preferably overnight).
Remove the brine and pat dry the Turkey Legs. Let rest for another hour uncovered to dry the skin.
Meanwhile prepare your BBQ for an indirect session at low heat (+-75°C-100°C). When using another type of BBQ than the Pellet smoker you need to add a couple of chunks cherry wood.
Smoke the Daring Disney Legs for about 2 hrs. until they get a nice red colour.
Baste the disney legs with the Daring Disney sauce after about an hour. And let them smoke further. This way the sauce will nicely stick to the drumsticks.
Raise the temperature of your grill to 150°C and smokeroast the Daring Disney Legs until you reach the desired internal temperature from 85°C bekomt. Glaze every once a while with sauce to prevent the sugars from burning.
