What did I do wrong with my turkey?

edited November -1 in EggHead Forum
I cooked a turkey using the recipie in the BGE handbook. It was only a 10.5# bird. I estimated about 3 hours using the verticle roaster at 300 degrees. The breast was at 160 but the thighs were no more than 169-171. Kept cooking until 5 1/2 hours went by but thigh temp never got above 174. Ate the breasts next day, not bad, little dry. The rest was turned to soup. I thought the thighs need to get to 180 but it never happened. Please explain what went wrong. Thanks
