What do I need to do in advance to prepare for roasting a turkey in convection?

Answer:

  1. If your oven needs to be self-cleaned, do so at least 2 weeks in advance. If your oven is relatively clean, just remove the filter in the back of the oven cell and place it in the dishwasher to clean it.
  2. Purchase a frozen turkey at least 5 days in advance before roasting and allow it to thaw in the refrigerator.
  3. If you are brining the turkey, begin brining 4 hours before roasting (unless otherwise instructed by your original recipe).
