90 minute 10 pound bird?

Cooking a turkey, mainly for left overs, and it's only been on for just over 90 minutes at 350 degrees, yet the breast is already at 172 degrees?  Did not stuff anything inside, would that have caused it to cook faster? Or because it's a smaller bird?  

I don't want to over cook it but worried the 90 minutes surely can't be enough??

    Direct or indirect-spatchcock style or not....regardless of the former, either you believe your inidcations (thermo reading) or you don't and yes, 10# turkeys have gone that fast.  Thigh temp?  Bottom-line find a good thermo that you can check the calibration of (along with your dome thermo) and then go with it.  The recommended high-speed digital thermo is a Thermapen.  A bit pricy but does the job.
