how many people does a 14lb butterball feed?
- 10 years agoFavorite Answer
A general guideline is to allow ¾ to 1 pound of uncooked turkey (of course you will cook it before you serve it to your guest) per person allowing for moderate leftovers. Thus a 14lb butterball turkey will feed 14 to 18 people.Source(s): http://www.butterball.com/

No way will a 14 lb turkey feed 14 to 18 people.
First off the the 14 lb turkey will be less then 12 lbs after it's cooked( 20% shrinkage).
Then a turkey is half bones. So you will remain with roughly 6 lbs of meat and that's including dark meat.
A 14 lb turkey is for 10 people or less.
This chart is much closer to reality if you want leftovers. Turkeys shrink quite a bit and many people do not like dark meat. So you need a big breast.
YES, now you have it right!
See the conversion?
Type in 10 adults on the Butterball site and you will see it calls for a 20lb Turkey( we cater all year and on Thanksgiving we cook 100+ turkeys in our store).
Now you got it-:)
Thumbs up.( now change the 3/4 to 1lb to
1 1/2 to 2 lbs.
It's Thanksgiving. People want to eat.
People want leftovers...
It seems like a lot but after all is said and done, your happy you did the bigger bird.Source(s): Gourmet market business 40 + years.

About 7. Like otherwise stated take into account appetites and the bones in the bird. Plus you want leftovers and you wont have much even with a 14 lb bird feeding 7

Depends on how well you cooked it :) And how many sides, but figure 1.5 lbs per person uncooked when thinking bone in poultry. I'm Italian turkey is a side dish here on a holiday.
