Let me share a quick Wild Turkey recipe using the drumsticks and thighs of an Eastern Wild Turkey taken last season. I am cooking this recipe in camp and want to prepare the entire meal in less than an hour. This recipe allows just that. This was made possible by slow cooking my bird in a crock pot and putting the meat up in freezer bags. This allows preparation time for this meal to be less than half an hour. If you have the time and your meat is uncooked, just follow the recipe cooking all ingredients in a crock pot.
- Legs and thighs of one turkey
- Campbell’s Slow Cooker Sweet Korean BBQ Sauce
- One bag of raw carrots
- Three Bagel Rolls or any Bread
- 4 Cups Uncooked Minute Rice
- 1/2 Tbsp Chives Per Serving
- Seasoning and hot sauce to taste
The Wild Turkey is one of the most challenging game birds to harvest, so don’t dispose of the legs and thighs. Learn to cook these flavorable cuts of meat and wow your guest with the taste of wild game.
Over the past year the GO Outdoor University team has been busy creating videos and articles about cleaning wild turkey and preparing this rare treat. We will also be sharing different methods of cleaning your bird, and ways to preserve the fan and entire turkey cape to produce decorative wall hangings.
