how many will a turkey feed
ok i need some help i am bbq'ing several turkeys on my for thanksgiving for my church, we are feeding the needy , how many can i feed off of a turkey 18-20 lb range ,may have as many as 500 people , not sure of the meat to carcass ratio

I figure 2 lbs raw weight per head that takes into account the bones and water weight loss.

Yep, 2 lbs per person raw weight here also.

Yep.. So if 500 people then 1000 pounds of Turkey ought to do her.. if Turkey is the only meat you are serving..
