I shot my first turkey this year and had a great chili made with white beans and the breast meat on Mother's Day.

However, based on what a lot of people had told me, I was questioning my decision to keep the legs wings and thighs off my bird.

I happened upon hank shaw's recipe for wild turkey carnitas using the legs and thighs and it turned out to be amazing.

The meat was tender and juicy and didn't need anything more than a little white onion, cilantro, avocado, and crumbled cotija cheese to make it perfect. One of the better meals I've had in a while. Not just wild game. ...

That is really cool.

I always favored thighs over breasts.
