I was feeling adventurous and want to spice up Thanksgiving this year. My sister graciously gifted me a giant Calphalon enamel cast iron dutch oven yesterday and I want to get "hella-creative".

What i was wondering is if the below concept could be executed properly or am I going to have a massive failure of dry turkey pillow stuffing or slippery under cooked filth?

The concept I want to employ:
-Buy 10 lb turkey
-Cut it inot pieces
-Brine pieces
-Brown the turkey pieces like you would a beef roast in the dutch oven
-Add red onion, porcinis, and red wine and sautee` in the browny goodness left over.
-Re-add the turkey pieces with some chicken stock and roast on 325 till the turkey is done via meat thermometer

What do you all think? Any suggestions?
