18.9 lb turkey getting to temp in less than 2 hours

I'm doing the Bobby Flay turkey smoking recipe this morning. Followed his instructions for about 275 temp, soaked pecan chips and clocked in for a breast finish at 155°. Egg got excited with this cold weather and climbed up to about 340° when I wasn't looking. Now the turkeys at 154° and has only been on the egg for an hour and a half. If it finishes early, and all the temps check out (155° breast, 165° thigh) should the bird be OK?

Even with the vents set for a slow Smokin 250°, bottom vent at 10th of an inch and top about 30% open, she won't drop.
