To me, a fair just isn't a fair if I don't eat a turkey leg, so that was the first fair food I decided to review. The thing about turkey legs is they can be hit or miss sometimes.
I purchased my turkey leg from Mickey's Grill across from the U.S. Cellular Grandstands for $9. It is a higher priced food item, but you always get a lot of bang for your buck when it comes to turkey legs.
The turkey legs at Mickey's Grill are definitely a hit. Sometimes turkey legs can either be dried out or overly juicy, but the ones you'll find at Mickey's are just right. The meat was tender enough to tear the meat off the bone with your teeth.
Smoked turkey legs tend to have a salty flavor, but the flavor in this turkey leg wasn't over the top.
I have eaten turkey legs at other fairs, and I have had the experience of get a turkey leg that was warm on the outside and cold in the middle as you get closer to the bone. I was pleased to find my turkey leg warm all the way through, but not too hot that it was uncomfortable to eat during the warmer part of the day.
There wasn't a wait either to get a turkey leg at Mickey's Grill. It is so frustrating when you're craving a turkey leg and the vendor who makes them tells you there is a 20 minute wait.
If you're just dying to get your smoked turkey leg fix at the Clay County Fair, I recommend Mickey's Grill as the place to buy one. And remember not to eat it too fast, turkey legs have those fun little ligaments you have to eat around. Enjoy!
