Convection and turkeys

My new Whirlpool range has true convection and I was thinking about using the convection to bake my 7.5 LB Butter Ball Turkey. Advise anyone?

You can either cook it at your regular temp, and knock about 15 minutes per pound off the cooking time, or lower the heat and cook it the same time.

I just tried an experiment with a roast chicken using my convection for the first time; cooked at regular temp for about 45 minutes, and the bird was beautiful, lots of brown, crispy skin and oh, so moist and tender.

Wow - a 7 1/2 pound turkey - would that be a turkette?

Yea, it's pretty small, but we aren't really big turkey eaters. I'm also fixing a 12 lb. ham.

Thanks for the info!
