For the Smoked Turkey Leg
Preheat the smoker to 250 degrees F using fruit wood.
Coat the turkey leg with olive oil and poultry rub.
Place on smoker until internal temperature reaches 160 degrees Fahrenheit (approximately 2 hours).
Start by preheating a large stock pot over medium high heat.
Add olive oil and the diced red onions and soften for about 6 minutes, stirring occasionally.
Add apple cider vinegar, chicken stock, salt, cayenne pepper, garlic powder and Worcestershire sauce and bring to a simmer.
Add turkey leg and adjust salt to taste. (You can let this simmer without the greens for up to an hour for more smoky stock flavor if you have time)
Finally add the chopped greens into the pot over a simmer and stir to mix. Cover and let simmer for one hour or until the greens are soft to taste. Take care to not let the stock come to a boil, keep the simmer as low heat as possible.
Serve in your favorite bowl and add some of the turkey from the leg in your dish.
Short Cut Tip: You can buy frozen pre-cooked smoked turkey legs or turkey thighs and substitute smoking them yourself.
