I assume you provide the turkey, do the brining and all?
How many days in advance do you have them pick it up?

The turkeys are given to the customer in a half pan wrapped in foil. It aint pretty but it works. 300 oven for 1 hr, pull foil, crank up to 375 for another 30 minutes. Thats on memory, ill check tomorrow and edit if needed.

I charge $40 for a 10-12lb turkey. You can pick up the day before or the morning of Thanksgiving. (By 9am) I normally do 10-12 birds. But if I had the equipment I could do 50 - 75.
