What size turkey should I get?
Choosing the Right Size Turkey When choosing a turkey to serve on Thanksgiving, figure 1 1/2 pounds per person. If you are serving 10 people on Thanksgiving, choose a bird that is 15 to 20 pounds. Smaller birds that weigh less than 12 pounds have a smaller meat-to-bone ratio, so figure two pounds per person.
What size turkey do I need for 15?
While 1 pound per person could feel like too little, and 1 1/2 pounds for each guest might be over-doing it, 1 1/4 pounds of turkey per mouth is the perfect balance. At that rate, feeding a large party of fifteen or more people will require 20+ pounds of turkey.
Can I brine my turkey in a bucket?

What do you brine a turkey in?
Why Brine a Turkey? Brining is the process of soaking meat in a salt water solution before cooking. As the meat sits in the brine, it soaks up the salt water, which flavors the meat and adds moisture to the piece of meat.
Can you fry a brined turkey?
In a turkey fryer or an 18-quart or larger stockpot, bring the oil to 400°; this can take up to an hour. Remove the turkey from the brine and pat it dry inside and out with paper towels. ... Lower the turkey into the hot oil and fry for 3 minutes per pound, 36 minutes.
Can I prep turkey night before?
Can I stuff the turkey the night before roasting? ... You can, however, make the stuffing the night before and refrigerate it until you're ready to roast the turkey. Be sure to let the turkey and the stuffing rest at room temperature one hour before stuffing.
Should I let my turkey sit out before cooking?
First, Bring Your Bird to Room Temp Your turkey will cook more evenly and faster if you start it out at room temperature so remove the turkey from the refrigerator 1 hour before roasting. If you plan to stuff your turkey, wait until you're ready to put it in the oven before putting the stuffing in the turkey.
Do I Cover the turkey with aluminum foil?
Just make sure you uncover the lid about 30 minutes before the turkey's done roasting so the skin has a chance to get crispy. ... Covering the bird with foil mimics what a roaster lid would do — it traps steam and moistness so the turkey doesn't dry out — all the while allowing the skin to crisp up.
Do you cook turkey breast side up or down?
Cook the turkey breast-side down. While the turkey roasts, the juices fall down towards the breast, resulting in the most succulent meat. The breast is also more protected from the heat, which helps keep it from getting too dried out.
