It should not be a problem to cook two turkeys at one time if your oven is big enough. I would suggest you add time to the roasting because it will be slower than with just one turkey. You probably should rotate the pans a couple times during the roasting for more even browning. Be sure you use a thermometer and make sure you reach an internal temperature of at least 165 degrees F in the thickest part of the bird. I also would not stuff the turkeys.
