Turkey question: edible meat vs. total weight

Angela Roberta | Dec 3, 2008 12:27 PM

If you don't eat skin or fat, how much edible meat is there on a turkey? I'm curious, because I will soon almost single-handedly (mouthedly?) polished off half--less one leg--of our 22-pound bird.

What would be the percentage of edible meat? Or how many pounds of meat would you expect, say, a 20-pound turkey to yield?

Thanks.
