Damn lol. My entire family is only like 10 people so it was just the prime rib. We had a turkey or a ham with it a couple times.
Growing up if everyone came we were easily 30+ people for Thanksgiving and Christmas. Nowadays it's about 20. Lol still a lot. It would be crazier if some family hadn't spread out across the U.S.

And turkey doesn't keep as well as ham even if it is well cooked the first day it dries out a lot faster. You get better mileage out of the ham.

My family always did a ham and a turkey. I hate ham though. Honestly my favorite part about turkey is not eating it hot out of the oven - well aside from maybe the drumsticks. I like turkey sandwiches and then taking the turkey carcass and making turkey soup. God damn is turkey soup good.

Did both a ham and turkey yesterday.

I've been spatchcocking the turkey for the past few years, so the breast meat doesn't overcook and it really moist.

Ham is just a homemade glaze with orange juice, brownsugar, honey, soy sauce, and cloves.

Both were outstanding, thought the true winner every year is the gravy which I estimate has about 103958585calroies per tbsp.
