These turned out very tasty as suggested! However, I had two pretty major issues with the recipe. First, I am not sure what size pot is recommended, but I used a large dutch oven pot and the turkey leg was sticking out of the pot the entire time it was cooking. So, I could not fit the lid tight. Once I added the collards I cooked it at about 6.5 on my stove and then on the last step set the stove to about 3-3.5. I also couldn't close the lid properly, so the water may have evaporated off a little quicker. On the last step, it only needed about 30 minutes more cook time. The second was that the recipe suggested that it made 10 servings. However, by the time it cooked down, I was lucky to get 5 servings. I ended up using homemade turkey stock and it worked great. I didn't add the optional red pepper flakes, pepper, or addtional salt. The stock and smoked turkey leg definitely had plenty of salt and flavor. I admit, I was really surprised how well this did turn out taste wise. My plan next time, is to make two pots or find a larger pot. I may also just try a smoked turkey wing. I will miss the meat, but it will at least fit in the pot. Either way, I think I will make this again on a holiday occasion. TY
