    • 1/2 cup celery, finely chopped
    • 1 cup water
    • 1 8 ounce can tomato sauce
    • 1/2 cup ketchup
    • 2 tablespoons brown sugar
    • 2 tablespoons mustard
    • 1 tablespoon butter
    • 1 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce

Sauté onion and celery in butter until soft. Add everything else except the turkey legs. Mix well and remove from heat. Place turkey legs on a preheated grill over a medium hot fire. Grill, covered for about 30 to 45 minutes or until nearly done. Turn occasionally. When drumsticks are close to being done, begin basting with sauce. Watch out for burning. If you boil the remaining sauce after you’re finished basting you can serve it on the side.
