I would use anything smoked in split pea soup. Mmmmmm!

I have smoked turkey neck pieces that I bought just for that purpose.

I reccomend brasing or smoking. Something that will help tenderize them and render lots of fat from the skin. I think next time I am going to braise in a bbq type sauce for a few hours, then finish off on grill. Hopefully dry up the skin a bit.

Sometimes I have thrown in a piece of raw bacon and taken it out after the soup has been completed. A couple of cloves also helps give the flavor you may get from baked ham.

I've used the smoked turkey wings in beans and they added a very "hamlike" flavor, if you didn't tell anyone they would assume it was ham.

This may give me a good reason to smoke some turkey wings.
And leave the liquid smoke in the cupboard

I used store bought ones and they were quite salty like ham.

hmmm, I wonder if they used a brine solution... smoking in itself wouldn't add a salty taste.
