When it comes to the turkey that you are going to buy for your turkey dinner, there are more choices than ever before. The following are some of the things to consider when thinking about buying turkeys and a primer to help you select the right turkey at the store or the butcher shop. For starters, it's always a bit confusing to know which turkey to buy when it comes to dinner. A good rule of thumb is to buy a turkey for some people that you are serving. So, for example, you will need about one pound of turkey per person, or one and a half pounds per person if you want leftovers. You can even buy two smaller turkeys and serve one at one dinner and roast the second one for leftovers instead. When choosing a turkey for your dinner and leftover food ideas, it is often suggested to buy two turkeys. Another thing to consider is light meat or dark meat. If your family just likes eating dark turkey meat and doesn't care about carving into a whole bird at the table, you can just roast the turkey legs so that everyone is happy. On the other hand, if you only like the white turkey meat, order a bone-in turkey breast instead. As for the size of your oven, if your oven is not a standard size and runs small, make sure that there is enough room in there for your turkey and roasting pan.

When it comes to the turkey that you are going to buy for your turkey dinner, one of the options is that of free range or free roaming turkeys. Free range turkeys must have continuous, free access to the outdoors for over 51 percent of their lives, which some believe makes for a better tasting meat. You can feel better knowing that these birds lived a better life, and that is a good thing. While the idea of a free range where turkeys can roam free is nice, a free-range label may simply mean that the turkey has access to a door outside and there's no guarantee that the turkey went outside for a walk.
