How large should a turkey be to feed 15 people?
You will need approx. 1/2 lb. per person, so you can get a BIG 25lb, or 2 smaller ones, don't forget the bigger the turkey, the longer in the oven! at least 11 hours approx (1/2 hour per pound) at a moderate heat. you may find that a very large turkey may be a bit dryer, (it is an older bird after all) so keep basting!! Happy Thanksgiving~!!

According to the website mentioned in the Related Links, the rule of thumb is to pick a bird that weighs 2 pounds more than the number of people you are feeding, e.g., a 10-lb… turkey would feed 8 people; and a 15-lb turkey would feed 13.
13 people. 2 people less the total pounds.
Well, this depends on how much they eat. My family usually makes a 20lb turkey, and this year we had about 10 people... We made no ham =( but we had plenty left.... But 25 LB …is good if you know they eat a LOT and if you want left overs. Ofc I know this is after the fact... But would want someone to answer all questions... Out dated or not =)
a pound a person is generous or 1/2 lb if you're on a budget.
a 15 lb turkey will feed 6 people.
About weighing 20 pounds.
Downsize to an eight pound turkey this year!
A turkey should be around 12-18 lbs.
I would say an 18 to 25 pounder for crowd that large.
3 @7 lbs each

In Dog Care
You will not meet your dog's dietary nutrition needs by feeding it nothing but ground turkey. Supplementing a properly balanced diet with turkey will not be a problem if the d…og likes it. Canines, like most carnivores, need a certain amount of vegetable material in their diet to provide them with vitamins. This requirement is met in the wild by the animal eating the stomach contents of the prey.
In Food & Cooking
At 1/2 pound of turkey each; 15 x 1/2= 7.5 pounds of meat, x roughly 1.5 for bones, a 10 pounder should theoretically do fine, but 15 pounds would be better, in case you have …a bunch of white-meat lovers, or something.
