A question about a recipe: Russ Parsons' Dry-Brined Turkey (a.k.a. The Judy Bird)

I have a question about the recipe "Russ Parsons' Dry-Brined Turkey (a.k.a. The Judy Bird)" from Genius Recipes. Am doing Judy Bird for first time, I have a thermador electric oven with convection roast setting. I have used it for chicken. How should I adjust temperature and cooking time for the Judy Bird.

I cook it at 325 and use the cooking times in the recipe minus approximately 20%. The Judy bird cooks much faster than a wet-brined turkey.

Reduce the oven temperature by 25*F, and reduce the cooking time by about one quarter.
