I have a couple questions.

How many people are you feeding and how many pounds of turkey are you cooking. Or other protein.

We are doing two different meats, and I'm not sire how many pounds I should cook for the people I'm having. Is there a rule I don't know about?

I host every year.

This year I made a 33 pound turkey (it' always 30 pounds+).

We always have anywhere from 12 to 25.

I will have a small Thanksgiving of 7 with 4 kids. The Turkey is 12lbs 

I don't know if there is a rule.
