I always roast my turkeys using the convection option on my oven. I use the regular temperature. However, I also use a digital probe, that tells me exactly when my bird has reached the desired internal temperature. I am always amazed at how quickly the turkeys get roasted - especially since I am prone to choose extremely large (25-27 lbs) turkeys.
