We all know the legendary KCBS style BBQ recipe called Pulled Pork! Some of you might have tried pulled chicken. But who among you tried Pulled Turkey? Buy yourself a Turkey Leg and handle it with patience! The result: a juicy poultry version of an american classic!
Mix all rub ingredients by hand and break up the clumps.
Rub the turkey everywhere. You can remove a part of the skin to rub underneath. This way the flavor will get deeper in the meat.
Before you put the Turkey Leg on the BBQ you toss in 2 chunks of apple wood on a low heat zone between the coals. This way the chunks won't burn too fast. Wait until you see a thin blue smoke coming out of your grill before you put the Turkey Leg on the grid.
Close the lid and let it smoke for a couple of hours (4-5). You'll notice when it's done when the meat falls of the bone when you lift it. If you did well you'll have a nice crispy skin and a delicious smokey flavor.
Pull apart and serve! This Pulled Turkey batch served as a base for the Tinga Taco I'm about to share next week. But you can also add some pulled turkey on top of your Nacho's. Delicious!
