For your holiday dinner, how many pounds is it? I bought a turkey today for dinner tonight. I LOVE leftovers, so we do our own turkey dinner for holidays (we'll have ham, turkey and prime rib at my BIL's on Christmas Day). So our turkey is 17 lbs. On Thanksgiving it was 22 lbs and we barely finished off the leftovers, lol.

One is 15 lbs, I'm not sure about the other, probably around 10. (We provide a ham for two family dinners.)

Our ham is about 13 lbs. I love the spiral hams. Next year we plan on trying a honey baked ham and one of the cajun fried turkeys from Bojangles. If I can remember to order them. lol
