    Re: Turkey Legs

    DW pulled out the old Disney Unwrapped episode, and they talked about the turkey legs. They didn't say how long they were brined, only that they were injected, and then smoked for 6 hours.

    Re: Turkey Legs

    ham/turkey/whatever they are they look mank so don't think I'll be trying one soon lol!

    Also on a random semi related note:
    American food confuses me sometimes though but we're learning eg if we say over here (Ireland) can I have a hamburger and chips we actually get a beef burger and french fries whereas when I go to America if I say hamburger and chips in some places I get literally a "ham" burger and a plate of crisps (potato chips?!)

    A "hamburger" is made from ground beef. It has nothing to do with ham. They are the same.

    Crisps here are called "potato chips", and if you just say "chips", that is what you get.

    Chips here are called french fries, not after the French, but because they are "frenched" as in the style of slicing into strips).

    You would only get what you call chips if you order "fish and chips".

    Re: Turkey Legs

    **Mouth watering**

    Although I'd never go it alone with a turkey leg, I have been known to tussle with one or two legs. Man, they are delicious. We tend to eat larger lunches at a table service restaurant, so by the time evening rolls around there's nothing better. And to top it off, wash it down with a nice cold brewskie and my night is golden. Literally. Set me down on small world all night and I could care less after that leg.

    I don't think there is ANYWHERE on WDW where if you order a hamburger you are going to get ham.

    Now, an uncooked burger would be pink, and is another issue...

    Re: Turkey Legs

    I've been many a time and not had a Turkey leg, just because sometimes they don't look as appetising as at other times, also I always forget they're there.

    But in just over a week i'll make sure i have one

    Re: Turkey Legs

    Turkey legs are definitely not a snack credit. Wasn't aware you could use a CS on them. Might be better if they made them two snack credits, if they had the ability.
