Authentic recipe used by turkey leg vendors at fairs and festivals. 4 turkey legs, 1 (2 liter) bottle lemon-lime flavored carbonated soda, 2 tablespoons sugar, 2 tablespoons hot sauce, 1 tablespoon crushed red pepper flakes, 1 tablespoon black pepper, 1 large sweet onion, sliced, 2 tablespoons honey, 1 tablespoon steak seasoning
Combine soda, sugar, hot sauce, red pepper flakes, black pepper and onion slices in a large pot. Bring to a low boil and add turkey legs. Boil over a medium heat for about 30 minutes or until the turkey legs register an internal temperature of 165 degrees F. (74 degrees C.). Meanwhile, preheat grill. Place onion slices on the heated grill and put the turkey legs on top of the onion slices. Brush with honey and sprinkle with steak seasoning. Grill over a medium heat for about 15 minutes watching carefully to avoid burning. Turn as needed. The skin should be crispy brown when the turkey legs are done.
