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!

Very nice and informative. I am smoking a 14 lb Turkey and an 11 lb ham . How long and at what temp do you recomend?

The oven is large enough to put both on the same rack. So I put both of them in together. Thank you and bless you.
