You most certainly can and depending on how many racks you are using and size of your oven you can also bake sweet potatoes, green bean casserole, etc at the same time and you just need to be aware of the cooking times and oven positions of all the items :-)

I just did this Thanksgiving. First note, please use a conventional meat thermometer vs a pop up. The pop ups are designed to pop between 180-185 degrees F. A turkey is done at 160 with resting which continues to cook to 165 which is the safe temp to eat. By the time the pop up "pop" your turkey can be way overcooked.

I cooked a 9 1/2 lb turkey and 9 1/2 lb ham (smoked) at 325 degrees F for approx 4 hours side by side. This includes removing the ham 3 hours in, letting sit for 15 minutes to somewhat cool, glazing, adding pineapples, cloves and such and returning to oven. I increased the temp to 400 degrees F for the last 30 minutes.

They both came out at the same time and rested while I baked all the sides and biscuits. Everything was done, ready and hot at the same time. It was the first time I ever cooked a ham, much less side by side with a turkey and it worked perfectly!

Normally you cook turkey and ham in an oven at 350 degress. You will need to put the ham in the oven for about 1 hour before you add the turkey to the oven.

The cook time for ham and turkey is 15 minutes per pound. Total cook time for ham is 3 hours and the total for the turkey is 2 hours.

See if this grid helps you:

www.foodsafety.gov/.../meatchart.html

It gives times and temperatures (both cooking and done--internal).

The key is to use a meat thermometer and make sure they are both done.

This is a math thing and I always avoid doing this....usually if I am cooking two meats, I do one one day, and one the next (I like to do the turkey first since if you keep it in a broth bath it stays moist and fresh). That is just me. I have friends who can do this math without issues and I envy them! I had a math injury in high school :)

You can cook them together. Put two separate meat thermometers in because they may not be done at the same time.

Do you need to add the weight of the turkey and the weight of the ham to get how long you should bake them, if you are cooking in oven at the same time?

As long as there is enough air to circulate around the two, they should be cooked in the same time as it would take to cook one item.

No, you don't add the two together, if that is what you are asking.

You have to cook each based on the individual weight of each piece....so check this grid and see how long for each based on weight. If the temperature is not the same for each, meet in the middle.

The key is to use a meat thermometer use that to gauge done-ness based on internal temp.

They may not be both done at the same time...so you may need to keep one warm while the other finishes.
