Never worry about dry turkey again!

OK, so as I mature into a culinary Mother Teresa I am willing to concede that those of you who love turkey—gulp—deserve to be heard and to have your delicious recipe too. BUT my kindness only goes so far and I am still depriving you of a whole roasted bird. SO. This braised version keeps the meat so moist and falling off the bone and best of all it can be done a day ahead of time and just reheated in the amazing gravy.
