We've put together 2 simple-to-use calculators. One allows you to easily determine what size turkey you need to buy in order to feed whatever number of dinner guests you plan to serve. The second calculates how long to roast your turkey in the oven (at 350°), using the size of the turkey as a guide.
Don't forget to start thawing a frozen turkey - in the refrigerator - well in advance; 3-5 days in advance!
Enjoy Your Thanksgiving Turkey!
