If it is bone in prime rib, 1/2 pound raw is the minimum, a bit less if it is boneless. Add 1/2 pound whole raw turkey per person.

Turkey fryers are quite dangerous around kids. be careful.

That means for this menu for 300 people, you start with 150 pounds bone in standing rib, or about 125 pounds boneless, PLUS 150 pounds whole raw turkey. Turkeys that weigh under 18 pounds have better meat and are easier to handle in the fryers than larger turkeys.
