Is it ok to cook a turkey in a convection oven with an oven bag?

Yes, if it is a full-size convection oven. Countertop size convection ovens (like the size of a microwave oven) are too small and the bag may touch the sides or the heating element and melt. When using a convection oven, reduce the recommended oven temperature by 25 degrees and roast for the same amount of time. Always preheat the oven before using an oven bag and never exceed 400 degrees.
