    Hi- Whole Foods used to have some wonderful smoked turkey legs, but they quit carrying them. I picked up some decent ones at Treasure Island last year, but that is not an option. I've also gotten decent ones at Paulina market, but I was hoping for some place closer to Evanston. Is there any place within five miles of Evanston that has decent ones. I am leery of the ones at Jewel, Valli and Mariano's. Are they any good? How about Zier meat? Do they have them? Thanks, Nancy

    I don't think Zier's does any smoked turkeys other than whole. You could call and ask them, though.

    Maybe Hecky's? (not necessarily recommending, just thinking out loud).

    How about gene's? Not 100% sure turkey legs are part of their smoked offerings, but easy enough to find out

    I've seen them at Village Market. Haven't had one though.

    Have used their smoked pork hocks and necks for soup and they were fine.

    Tony's has smoked turkey tails, necks, wings and drumsticks at $1.99/pound in their ads covering both the Niles (8900 N. Greenwood) and Lincoln Square (5233 N. Lincoln) stores through Thanksgiving day.
