I would not buy a turkey less than 15 pounds because the small ones just have a larger bone structure and less meat. They say 1.25 pounds per person and that is usually close to correct unless you have a boneless turkey breast. But a lot of the size has to do with whether or not you want leftovers.

Well, I think the best things come in small packages - so my littlest turkey at 7 1/2 lbs wins the prize for smallest! Actually, the bone structure doesn't feel large in proportion to the body (I remember hearing that somewhere else) - I checked before I went ahead and bought it; feels more like a roasting chicken's bones would.

If there was more than two of us eating turky, I would have gotten one a little larger, but I can't see getting a big one for me and my son. Hubbie and #2 son will, of course, have their 'Tofurkey' :roll: - lol, I even bought some of the Tofurkey gravy for them this year!

Well my fingers were primed and ready to really let you know but I saw those blazing eyes of Elfee and I decided to contain myself. So.........I have no clue what size to by considering this is my first Thanksgiving meal to prepare. Guess if I don't fix enough theres always Wendy's and Arbys down the road.............I'm sure they have something Turkeywise on their menu :)
