I brown the legs or thighs or both in my dutch oven. I add several smashed garlic cloves near the end. (so I don't burn the garlic) Once nice and brown, I add beer or chicken stock and put it into a 300f oven covered for 1 hour.

I remove the pan and check for liquid and pour bottled BBQ sauce over them. Not to much. Just a little bit more than a 1/2 cup.
I return them to the oven for 1 more hour uncovered. Adding more liquid as required.
Let them sit for an hour or so covered and serve.

Very, very good and so tender.

Addie. Do you have Publix in your area? They always have turkey parts.

Just picked up two drumsticks with thighs and back portions. These will be my extra lunches and bones for stock for gravy. I was looking at the Swanson's Turkey stock and it has way too much sodium.

Thighs are nice to bone out, stuff and tie up as a small roast or turkey braciole. It sound like a big job but it only takes a few minutes and makes a nice presentation.

Good to know. I'd been looking for turkey stock in the stores, and realized I had 2 quarts of homemade in the freezer, leftover from T'giving in July.

If I do it plain, I can set it up for lunches in a few different ways. Thanks for the idea, though!

I plan on turkey and noodles for the drumsticks.

I don't know Mom's recipe, but she cooks them in the crockpot. When I call her tonight, I'll ask about it.

I am sure the workers at the Swanson plant get to bring some of the stock home. I can't help wondering if their wives read the labels and if they do, do they still use it? I know I wouldn't. So I went wandering and look what I found. And they have organic .

Yes, I bought that and a jar of their clam base, too! I like Better Than Bouillon products.

No go for me. It has soy oil and autolyzed yeast extract. Since MSG is a natural component of the autolized yeast extract, it doesn't have to be listed separately.

Rob doesn't eat any soups or gravy in restaraunts to avoid msg, he is leery of a lot of seasonings too. Msg just makes him feel terrible. He's lucky that he found someone that not only can cook from scratch, but enjoys doing it!

Turkey Drumsticks - Crockpot vs. Oven I bought some turkey drumsticks for dinner and I was wondering what method of cooking you woulld recommend. I'm considering doing them in the crockpot but I don't want them to disintegrate. I also would like to know what temperature is best for oven roasting in this case. I have the following ingredients list: 3.5 pounds turkey drumsticks 1/8 cup coconut oil 1/8 cup olive oil 1/2 cup Chardonnay 1 cup diced tomatoes 2 tablespoons dried thyme 2 tablespoons dried sage 2 tablespoons dried rosemary 2 tablespoons chopped garlic 1/4 cup chopped carrots 1/4 cup chopped celery 1 chopped onion I've adopted this from a recipe on epicurious.com. Ideally the drumsticks would come as moist and as possible tender without falling apart. Thanks for the advice, Jonathan. 3 stars 1 reviews
