Our toms grew to about 60-65 lb range. After skinning, drawing, etc, they weighed somewhere in the 44-50 range. I don't know, as I didn't have a scale that could handle the whole bird, and we weighed the parts and pieces. I can't lift more than 50 lbs, and the things of course would never fit in a regular oven, so used a hacksaw to cut them into manageable portions. One half a breast roasted into an absolutely delightful meal with leftovers and leftover leftovers for 5 people. That was last year. We still have turkey in the freezer, gave away one turkey and parts of another. Plan on lots of turkey soup this winter.

Saw the ad for the drunken chicken. There was a a metal stand that held the bird upright, and the can of beer was placed on the floor of the pan and up into the cavity.
