Turn tradition upside down and try grilling BBQ Turkey Legs this Thanksgiving!
I love traditions… especially around the holidays. At Thanksgiving we always have my late-grandma’s banana cream and chocolate cream pie. These buttery dinner rolls have been gracing our Thanksgiving table for years. With every new marriage, child born and merger of families, new traditions are brought in to the fold. The traditions around our holiday table are both rich with family history and valued by everyone.
With that said, there are times when breaking tradition is totally ok. For example, a smaller Thanksgiving gathering might not require a giant turkey to be roasted. Instead, maybe grilling up some BBQ Turkey Legs might be a better option. These Grilled BBQ Turkey Legs made with KC Masterpiece Hickory Brown Sugar Barbecue Sauce are just the nudge you need for breaking away from tradition, just a little bit. They are so good, you will never miss your traditional roasted turkey!
KC Masterpiece Barbecue sauce may not be a part of your Thanksgiving traditions yet, but it’s a brand that has certainly been a traditional staple in households for quite some time. Founded in my hometown of Kansas City (YAY) 35 years ago KC Masterpiece is a trusted name for true, authentic, barbecue sauce.
So what do you think? Are these Grilled BBQ Turkey Legs smothered in a hickory smoke and rich brown sugar sauce tempting enough for you to buck tradition this year? Who knows, maybe once you try it, you’ll throw all of your old traditions out the window and start a new, delicious tradition of your own. Enjoy!

Lightly dredge each turkey leg through the seasoning mixture. Shake off excess.

Place turkey legs on the grill and sear on each side for approximately 3 minutes.
