Choosing a Turkey

1. Size matters: How big a turkey?For birds under 16 pounds, figure at least 1 pound of turkey per person. For larger birds 16 pounds and heavier, figure a bit less since there’s more meat in proportion to bone. If you want substantial seconds and leftovers, allow another 1/2 pound per person.

2. Got a big crowd? Roast two smaller turkeys(12 pounds or less) instead of one large one. Smaller turkeys fit better in the fridge and roasting pan, plus they cook more quickly and evenly. Plus, it lets you experiment with two different types of preparations.

3. Choose the right turkey With so many turkeys on the market, trying to choose your holiday bird can be mind-boggling: free-range? organic? natural? We recommend choosing afresh turkey without any added ingredients, and organic,kosher, heritage or premium-brand turkeys are all great options.
