Large or Xtra large?

I 'm trying to decide whether to purchase the large or extra large BGE. I would like to be able to cook a turkey on it (10 to 14 lb.) What do you all recommend?

    Lbge is more than enough we cooked a 22lbs turkey for Thanksgiving. What ever your wallet will allow. The X large seems a big unless you cook for a army on a regularly. Just my opinion

    shoot, you can do a 10-14# in a medium BGE. I've done a 24.5# in my large. The XL is a B I G cooker - do you cook for whole lot of people every meal? If not its like firing up a 747 to go to the corner drug store when you could have just walked easier!
