Help Us Find The Best Possible Thanksgiving Dinner

Last year, we tried to figure out what every region of America consumes over Thanksgiving. This year, to advance FiveThirtyEight’s ruthless agenda of turning all good things into numbers, we’re trying to figure out the best, most crowd-pleasing Thanksgiving dinner menu possible. I’ve set up a head-to-head matchup system so we can figure out whether peas or corn is better, if deep-fried turkeys are truly superior to their roasted compatriots, and how much marshmallows improve sweet potatoes. But we need your participation; otherwise, we won’t know which type of turkey to crown.

Let us know your thoughts on the best Thanksgiving dishes here: Enter the Thanksgiving Dinner Thunderdome.
