Not only do they seem messy and greasy, I just can't imagine eating that on a hot day. My stomach is queasy at the thought of it. Now, if they would pull the meat off the bone and offer it on a plate with a couple of sides, I'm sure I'd enjoy it after the sun goes down...

I agree. To me the worst part is seeing folks pass them around to 3 or 4 other people to "share". Makes me gag thinking about it, all those germs!

We actually got it on a plate (HS) and mostly used a knife and fork. Now, fried chicken is a different story!

I have never had the "pleasure" of witnessing the share, but we have always giggled at people walking around and eating them. Seems so silly, but that is probably why we chose to partake with the plastic-ware!

We will now be sampling food outside the parks...

I'm not a turkey leg fan at all, but I think I would like them more if they were oven roasted and not smoked.

We thought we were the only ones! We saw everyone enjoying these things, both my mom and I took one small bite and into the trash it went. Had no taste, just grease!

it has turned my stomach just reading about them, I love turkey,but don't like ham, I tried one bite a few years ago, it was nasty and greasy to me, but for some odd reason DD loves them and gets one everytime we go,in fact her,DH and Ds(11) get one to share to hold them over til we go out for dinner...to each their own I guess...me I'll stick to burgers and snacks...

Didn't taste like turkey because it's emu.

I'm a big time meat lover. But i the site of people eating the turkey legs just look like cavemen chomping on some raw meat. I know...i know...it probably tastes better than it looks. But i can't get over the vision.

WDW TURKEY LEGS:

1) Disney sells about 1.5 MILLION turkey legs every year!
2) That is about 7 turkey legs for every man-woman-child in Orlando.
3) Each of these monstrous bird legs weighs in at 1.5 pounds and costs $9.75.
4) They supposedly come from 40-50 pound turkeys!
5) Nutrition facts per leg
. . . about 1,092 calories per leg.
. . . about a days worth of fat
. . . about two days worth of sodium
6) Recipe
. . . take one leg
. . . inject salt brine
. . . smoke at 225º for 4 hrs.
7) Available
. . . MK - near Liberty Square
. . . EP - near America
. . . AK - near Flame Tree BBQ
. . . HS - near Tower of Terror

NOTE: We really do like the taste of the turkey legs. However,
we seldom finish one, so we save the calories for later. We still
get the taste when we have a hankerin'.

The smell of those things do me in. It literally makes me gag. Sorry to those of you who like them. One time there was someone in line behind me eating them and I almost had to get out of line. I did my best to stay as far away as possible.

I'm not sure why? I like turkey and ham. I even like smoked turkey (like the smoked turkey breast from Honey Baked). Maybe its because I'm not a fan of eating things on the bone? I don't know why that would make the smell bother me, though.

Ewwwww turkey legs are gross! I can't help but think of Fred Flintstone when I see someone eating one. I think what gets me is the smell and all the yucky veins in them.

We despise them! We made the mistake 10+ years ago of trying them after reading raves about them here on the DIS. Gross!
