Turkey help!

Xmas turkey is done and it looks and smell wicked!!!! 

Only concern is that its a 15lb bird and was done in 3 hours at approx 340-350 deg does this seem ok? Sees quick,should she go in oven for a bit??
Thermapen says 160-165 breast and thigh about 170-175 in places.

thanks.

Jamie.

    NO or it will be dry. Now if you are talking an oven at 200 then ok.

    Same here - done a lot quicker than expected.  13 pounder at 350 done in a little over 2 1/2 hours.  Wrapped in foil while everything else cooks.  Looks and smells great.  Temp probes calibrated before the cook.  Guess we'll be eating early.

    Tell me about your pan Jamie?

    Oh, and in regards to your bird...when it's done, its done.  Cook to temp, not time.
    Just a hack that makes some $hitty BBQ....
