I need to go buy a leg of lamb for our Christmas dinner, but I don't know how big one to get. It will be serving 8 people. Recipes I've seen have called for 4, 5, 6 and even 10 pounds for a bone in leg of lamb. The contest winner on Food52 called for a 5 pounder to serve 8 - is that a pretty good estimate?
