Wild turkey legs have a good bit of spindle which is why many hunters consider them inedible. However, if you braise them for a few hours, the delicious dark meat can easily be separated from the spindle. This, in my opinion, is the tastiet meat on the bird.

I just made stock from one carcass and will make more from the legs and wings next. I take that leg meat and mix with BBQ sauce with a little liquid hickory smoke. then put it on buns and it makes good sandwiches. More work, but more flavor than the breast.

I'll hopefully be trying this soon. What kind of braising liquid do you use? How about your recipe for the mole sauce.

Because you are cooking them on the bone, you only need water for your liquid and then whatever your desired flavor profile is from there. We were making Mexican food, so we used dried chilis (Chipoltle and Guajillo), garlic, onion, mexican oregano, etc.
I'll have to ask the squaw about the Mole recipe.
