I have a party to do in may(got insured and licence last year) and they asked for sliced turkey. Will be serving pulled pork, kilbasie(think thats how you spell it:icon_blush:) with mac&cheese,aue graton potatoes,garden and fruit salads for $18 a head.I'm guessing the same as pork 1/4 lb per person so maybe 15lb pre cooked would do for the turkey. Do's that sound right.

Thanks for any help. John(head butthead)

Are you doing whole turkeys or the double bone-in breasts? The double bone-in breasts are easier to handle, take a brine quickly and are a snap to carve plus there is less waste and shrinkage.

Stay away from Swanson or sara Lee, breast they are chopped up, Rightfords or Jenny O alway good. I get the boneless....bump up your serving per person, people love this..big seller up here...

dont waste your time with a whole bird..to much time to carve..

thanks, was looking at doing bone in whole breast so i could stuff the cavity with orange and lemons, did this with whole turkeys before and taste great. so maybe 3 servings per pound ?

General rule of thumb I have always uses for thanksgiving was 1lb of fresh whole turkey per person.

That leaves a lot of leftovers and a lot of waste.

With all the other meat you are doing I'd think you 1/3 lb per person would be enough.
