does turkey size matter to you?

i was wondering, how big of a turkey everyone was preparing this thanksgiving? i picked up a 21 pounder last night. shady brook farms brand i think. my fav is wampler, but they didn't have them. because of an in store promotion, i got it at 20 cents per pound, or roughly $4.25 for a huge boid.
so how big is your boid this year? do you prefer bigger or smaller turkeys, and why?

Nah, size dosen't matter to me as long as...NEVERMIND! The mind went straight to the gutter on that! But anyway, the size of the turkey dosen't matter to me as long as it's not over cooked & there is enough to feed everyone.

It's not the size of the ship, but the motion of the ocean.

We normally cook one around 12-15 lbs. Just not that many of us to feed. Then when you add all the other dishes...way too much to eat.

I'm going with a 14 pounder for several reasons. I'm brining, and much larger causes problems with room in the refrigerator. I flip the bird for even roasting, and it's not easy to flip a large, hot bird. Also, a larger bird results in way too many leftovers for us.

umm, mudbug. if you are eating a turkey from the ocean, it's more than likely a cormorant or pelican...
