Some oversized turkeys appear in Cold Storage around Thanks Giving. Could be the same before Christmas but I can not confirm.

What X9200 said... and if you have an Am Club friend, you can get one ready to eat.

Or... if you like 'em deep fried I have all the equipment.

specifically, I get mine from Jelita cold storage - just be aware they are frozen so you need to buy a couple of days before, depending on how you defrost - my guess is that most cold storage locations will have. Now the oven to roast it in is the problem, the Singapore ovens tend to be on the small side from what I am used to so cooking the whole xmas dinner and getting it to arrive hot on the table for some 20 people is a logistical challenge :o

Major hotels like Hyatt and Ritz Carlton have cooked turkey if you prefer it to be done professional/need it for a party. A friend got their from Hyatt last year, and its packed nicely with a bag to ensure it stay warm.

For some hotels, you would need to order in advance though.

Why? I've cooked an 18lbs bird in the microwave in 1hr 45min and it came out fine. (Course I did put it in a pre-heated regular oven for 15 minutes to brown the skin afterwards only) This was before the combo microwave/convection ovens came out. Now I'm sure you could do the whole thing in the microwave.
