Turkey - Breast &Thigh Temps Almost Same

So I put on a 23lb turkey around 11AM. Right now the breast is at 154 while the thigh is at 152. If I wait till the thigh is at 180, the breast will be too high...no? Any suggestions or should I just ride it out?

    I think you're gonna have to ride it out unless you want to put an ice pack over the breast!

     

    Never eat anything passed through a window unless you're a seagull ... BGE Lg.

    Heh...no more ice. Breast is at 163 & thigh is at 161. I'm going to double check it with a Thermapen when the breast hits 165.
