Evan’s solution to perfectly moist turkey is to cook the legs and breasts separately. For the past few years she confits the legs and thighs in duck fat and roasts the breasts on the bone in the oven. The result is turkey meat that falls off the bone. In this clip she describes her method for cooking the legs in duck fat.
