I've got nothing. Putting a turkey in a microwave isn't something I would even consider. I would pull the battery out of the smoke alarm for a day if it were me :)

I also have a microwave/convection oven and I have made a turkey in there on the convection setting about 3 times and each time it came out perfect! I am coming to your rescue as soon as I find the recipe I used which explained the temp and minutes per lb. Be back shortly with the info!

OK, I am going to give you the link to the site where I got the info when I first cooked my turkey in the convection oven:
Talking convection-oven turkey

I hope the link works. Let me know how it turns out.

I have to say that having done it both ways I prefer the way the turkey comes out in my convection/microwave oven. I use the convection setting of course so no microwaving is involved. The turkey comes out extremely moist and takes less time to cook because of the convection feature.

watched guy on guy's big bite, yesterday. he did the beer and laced turkey with bacon. stuffed slices or rather the ends of the bacon into the neck cavity. he let the rest of slices down the sides of bird. gotta say it looked very good. think i will do that. thanks for your advise mkaylady. much appreciated.

As long as you are not using the microwave function I don't see why not. If you are using the convection oven only then it is just like a regular oven except it cooks faster. How large is your microwave/convection, big enough to fit the turkey? I can fit a 20 lb turkey in mine.

How does the beer can version work exactly? Is the beer can full when you put it in the butt of the turkey? If so, how does the beer get out into the turkey?
