That's a really personal question! I'm a garlic fan, so I probably put in ~2 large cloves/pound of turkey. Processing method is important here, too: if you grate the garlic on a microplane or ginger grater it will be much more potent than if you chop it up. The fresher the rosemary, the stronger the flavors will be. I generally use one sprig per pound of turkey; your mileage may vary. Choping the rosemary in a coffee grinder makes things pretty easy, too. I grind pepper until my hands get tired, and just add a sprinkle of mustard over the top. The mustard is supposed to do more emulsification than flavoring.
