It depends on the size of the turkey, because the bag can't ouch the top, sides, or bottom of the roaster. But the roaster already cooks moist, so the bag may ber overkill. The Rival manual suggested 375 for pre basted or 350 for fresh 9-14
minutes per pound. In my experience this is too hot. I use 325 for 4 to
4 3/4 hours for an 18 pound turkey. The USDA now uses 165 as the end
point temp (down quite a bit from a few years ago), but if you stuff,
that has to be in the middle of the stuffing, and the turkey will
overcook somewhat while it gets there. All experts agree that turkeys
cook better and safer if unstuffed, so considering that you will have
to make an extra pan of stuffing to have it for everyone, you would be
well advised to cook your turkey unstuffed and use some of the
drippings to flavor the pan of stuffing while the turkey rests.
You could heat it on low power in the microwave at about 50% power for about 10 minutes, let it sit for a few minutes, check the temp around the bone, and do it again for another 2 minutes at a time until it gets to whatever temp you prefer. If you do use the roaster, put a cup of water in the pan, cover the ham, and heat at about 300 for about 30 minutes. If you want a little variety, instead of water you could pour a cup of Coke or pineapple juice over the ham, then cover and heat as noted above.
