The OP is in London. I don't know if it's the same there.

Yes, true enough.

Google suggests that there are places to buy pre-cooked turkey in London, including Whole Foods

I did a wonderful Thanksgiving turkey dinner with turkey parts in cooking bags. I used my full size oven, but there's no reason it shouldn't work in a smaller convection oven. Actually, I'm now convinced I'll never do a whole turkey again, as I had full control of the cooking temps of the white and dark meat.
I assume they have cooking bags in the UK?

All I have is Walmart - or if I want to drive an hour one way, a Safeway. Neither has ever had cooked whole turkeys. Other stores I've used in the 40 or so years since I've been cooking daily have never made any sort of a point of advertising any such service either (it's at least 2 hours to the nearest Whole Foods, and I don't know if my bank account is big enough for anything they sell). I admit that I've never looked for one, since I prefer to do it myself.

It takes a certain population base to make such a service profitable. Between the cities in Colorado probably doesn't qualify

I've seen them advertised in the grocery store sale papers, including Walmart. There are even some restaurants here that do pick-up holiday dinners.

Well..... if having to cook my own turkey is the highest price I have to pay to live in Colorado, then I'll pay that all day.

Of course. I was just saying that's probably why you've never seen pre-cooked turkey.
