Smoked turkey stock

This is a testament to my foolish frugality - I had a smoked turkey leg that I was afraid was going to go bad, so I threw it in a pot with some veggie scraps to make stock. While the whole thing cost $2 or less (Grandma would be proud), I am now in possession of a couple quarts of stock that may impart a strangely smoky flavor. Where to go from here? I haven't tasted the stock yet and I am wondering what to make with it. What would you do with smoked turkey stock, assuming that it will be edible and not horribly salty/smoky? My first thought was to cook beans in it. Any other ideas welcome, the more inventive the better.
