Turkey 101: How big of a bird do I need to get?

If you're not sure how big of a turkey you need to purchase for your Thanksgiving celebration, read on!

  • 10-18 pounds will feed 10 or less
  • 18-22 pounds will feed between 10 and 15
  • 16-20 pounds will feed between 16 and 20
  • 20 pounds will feed 24-29 people

Please remember, the above numbers are a general guideline. We all know someone who seems to eat their own weight in turkey while others will be happy with a single slice. I recommend erring on the side of caution and going larger if in doubt. Besides, who doesn't love Thanksgiving leftovers? In my opinion, they are the best part of the holiday weekend.
