You might think that pre-cooked smoked turkey drumsticks lack the juiciness of a fresh smoked turkey when warmed.
However, we have the tricks to warm up drumsticks so they stay juicy and tender with a perfect smoky flavor.
The stove method is another great way of heating pre-cooked turkey legs and a good alternative when the oven space is at a premium.
Put the turkey legs in a pan.
Pour some stock into the pan, to a level of around 1cm.
Cover the pan with a tight-fitting lid and simmer on medium heat.
Turn several times during the cook, to maintain moisture levels.
Simmer until the meat is heated evenly. Once again, checking the internal temperature with a meat thermometer is the most efficient way to check they are ready.
Let drain, and fry off the skin at high heat if you prefer a crispy coating.
How to Cook Store Bought Smoked Turkey Legs On the oven
If you have store-bought smoked turkey legs, cooking them is easy. All you need is a conventional oven and some foil.
1. Preheat the oven to 325 °F.
2. Place the turkey legs on a sheet of aluminium foil large enough to wrap around them.
3. Sprinkle with little water or chicken broth, then wrap the foil around the legs, sealing tightly.
4. Place on a baking sheet or an oven-safe dish and put in the preheated oven. Bake for about 30 minutes or until heated through.
Cooking time depends on the size of the turkey pieces and how many pieces you put in the oven.
Also, what pieces of turkey you are baking, whether they are turkey thighs, turkey drumsticks, turkey breast, or a single turkey wing.
The most convenient thing is that you check with the food thermometer to make sure when they are ready.
An instant-read thermometer is the best way to tell when they are done.
The USDA recommends that you should set the oven temperature at 325 °F and cook the turkey until it reaches an internal temperature of 165 °F.
