I got a 12 and a half pound turkey I have been cooking it between 300-325. I started at 630 it's now 8. My thighs are 153 and breast is at 110. We want to eat at 1230. I think my thighs are cooking way too fast what should I do?!?

Turn down the heat. At 225°F the bird will cook slowly and if the skin is too soft, smoke to an IT of 150 and finish in the Oven at 425°F...JJ

Thanks! I dropped the temp, moved thighs so that they are away from the fire and sprayed them with my spritz. That helped things a lot!! Happy thanksgiving!!!
