Do I need to let the oven preheat before placing the turkey inside?

Answer:

Yes, the oven needs to come to a full preheat before placing the turkey inside. During preheat, more than just the rear element comes on to preheat the oven quickly. Your turkey may burn if it is placed in during preheat.
