We're walking a fine line here!

Ours is about 19 lbs. There are 7 of us, so that should provide good leftovers. If it were up to me, we'd go a bit smaller, but it's actually a huge accomplishment that I've gotten my mom to buy anything smaller than 20 lbs. Growing up, it was just my mom, dad, and me and she usually got around a 23-pounder!

If the temp is cold enough outside, you can place it in a cooler and leave outside.

I know, but if I did that we'd have a record heat wave and I'd be changing ice packs all night. Also, after the brining process I air-dry it in the refer for crisp skin.

MJ is going to yell at you jokers pretty soon. LOL.

buckytom, what I want to know is how you managed to pay only 20 cents a pound? I have never paid less than 99 cents a pound, and that is for a utility bird.

alix, there was an in store promotion that if you spent more than $300 in the last 2 weeks in this store, you had your choice of a free store brand turkey, ham, or lasagna; or you could get 99 cents off per pound of your choice of turkeys... they do this every year, so dw and i usually end up with 2 cheap turkeys for thanksgiving, and they do it again for christmas, when we get 2 hams...

Lucky bum! I would soooooo stock my freezer if they were cheap here. We don't get many cool promos like that darn it. Thanks for the quick reply.

Same thing here, otter. I'll be picking up a fresh 14-16 pound turkey next Tuesday, and it won't have any pre-injected brine.

Yep a 14-16 pounder. That is enough for T-day, leftovers, sandwiches, turkey pot pie, and the obligatory turkey soup.

Well, maybe a 16-18 lb. one.

Then it is almost time for Christmas.

And we definitely do not repeat the turkey thing.
