Two Turkeys

I got two turkeys about the same weight and wanted t know if the cooking temperature or time would change.

    Weight alone will only give you a rough idea as to the cooking time, at a given temperature. You'll still have to make a judgment on internal temperature before deciding whether the bird is completely cooked. That said, two turkeys of similar weight (with half a pound) cooked at the same temperature in the same oven should cook in about the same time. Still, the actual times will not be precisely the same.

      Agree with Todao, most ovens don't cook at the same temp in different parts. Also, 2 will extend the cooking time by 15-30 mins.
