    Sounds delicious! Is it easy to find smoked turkey legs at the store? Since I never looked for them, I have no idea! Thanks! Olga

      Olga, most of the stores have them. I get mine from Raleys Sprouts or Winco stores

    Hey do you have any tips/ recommendations if I dont have a slow cooker. Thanks.

      You can cook on regular pot on top of the stove … It should take about 2-2 1/2 hours.

    Do the beans need to soak overnight first?
