I will be cooking a turkey with all the fixin's for 10 people on Thanksgiving. A couple are not huge eaters, but my sons are real big eaters........how large a turkey should I get? The butcher recommends 1 1/2 lbs person, more if you want leftovers, which would be nice. I was thinking about 2 lbs a person....and getting a little over that and get 24 lbs. Any suggestions?
That sounds good but it's great to buy a turkey breast in addition to the whole turkey. There's alot of meat and you definetly have leftovers.

I'd go with a 24 lb turkey, nothing like leftovers you know, or that cold turkey sandwich and a glass of milk for a snack. And if you have the big eaters, better to have to much than not enough. Connie
Thanks to everyone for thier reply. I am always afraid of not having enough! I'd rather have a ton of leftovers and know that there was plenty....besides, after all that cooking I can take a day or two off!
24lbs it is!
