Grilled turkey legs, with their smoky aroma and crispy-on-the-outside, tender-on-the-inside texture, are a true culinary delight. Whether you're barbecuing with family and friends or enjoying an outdoor picnic, they make a fantastic choice.


  • 1 (2 liter) bottle lemon-lime flavored carbonated beverage
  • 2 tablespoons sugar
  • 2 tablespoons hot sauce
  • 1 tablespoon crushed red pepper flakes
  • 1 tablespoon black pepper
  • 1 large sweet onion, sliced
  • 4 turkey legs
  • 2 tablespoons honey
  • 1 tablespoon steak seasoning


Step 1: Preheat Pizzello Gusto for high heat, and lightly oil grate.

Step 2: In a large pot, mix the lemon-lime flavored carbonated beverage, sugar, hot sauce, red pepper, pepper, and onion. Place the turkey legs in the mixture, and bring to a boil. Cook 30 to 45 minutes, until the turkey has reached an internal temperature of 180℉ (80℃).

Step 3: Remove onion slices from the mixture, and arrange on the prepared grill. Place turkey legs over the onions. Drizzle with honey, and season with steak seasoning. Cook, tuning once, 20 minutes, or until a crisp browned crust has formed on the turkey legs.
