Easy B.B.Q Italian Dressing Turkey Drumsticks


  • 2 Galli Family Farm Turkey Drumsticks

  • Salt

  • Pepper

  • Smoked Paprika

  • Italian Dressing

This is a super easy dish, that can easily feed four adults or one teenage boy. Simply put Our Broad Breasted White Turkeys produce some of the most tender and flavorful parts. Especially the legs. Unlike store bought commercial grade Broad Breasted White turkeys, our Broad Breasted Whites, are pasture raised and are allowed to run around and forage just like wild birds. The activity plumps up the muscle quality of the legs, producing a tender, juicy, and very flavorful eating experience.

This dish can be done on an outside grill or also in the oven set at a temperature of 350 degrees. The cook time varies depending on the cooking method, and the size of the drumsticks. The most effective timer is the temperature of the meat. Once the internal temperature reaches 160 degrees, the Drums are done.
