22 lbs for 10 people...your making me nervous, I purchased an 18 lb bird from teeter for 27 people...but I plan to also get a turkey breast to cook in the crock pot to supplement the breast meat...will it be enough??? I was always told 1/2 lb per person, plus some for leftovers...thoughts on this?

Also, I know Trader Joes did have turkeys you could order for deliver next week, but I am almost sure that they have closed all of the ordering for this year.

I wound up ordering a fresh bird from Earthfare. All Natural not frozen from a farm in Pennsylvania.

It was $2.29/lb or something so not a bad deal IMO

Jake,
We get ours from Dean and Deluca. They're way expensive, but they're always amazing (maybe because I'm not the one cooking them, though).

We usually eat in the early afternoon like most, so by kickoff of the Jets game at 8pm, I'll need some leftovers on a roll!.....

I much prefer fresh turkeys, but, this year, the free Butterball gets the nod, as I'm paying off medical bills. I'm not concerned about the sodium, it just means that I'll adjust seasonings.

$2.29/lb for an all natural. It was $3.00 and some change for an organic. I think they come from Plainview, up in PA
