  1. My wife and I have just got through counting heads for Thanksgiving day, we are up to 22 and a few don't knows, could be 26 or 27, how many pounds per person is the average? Been looking through my books and can't find it. I have 2 10# now, thinking I need another.

    The average is usually 1 lb. per person so I think you will need another bird. This amount is assuming some side dishes and not a lot of leftovers.
  3. Thanks Ron, That's what I was thinking. Everybody is supposed to bring some sides, but you know how it is, someone always fails to bring what your counting on, I like to have more than enough. I will fire up another bird!
