Default Turkey Cooking Unevenly (Help!!!)

I am smoking a 17 lb turkey on a Primo (similar to Green Egg). I spatchcocked it and chilled the breast with ice before putting it on my smoker. I have three temperature probes in now and they are reading as follows 1) Thigh leftis 140 degrees 2) Thigh Right is 156 2) Breast is 110 degrees. I am concerned that at the rate the bird is cooking that the thighs will be done at 165-170 but the breast will not be in the safe range. I just rotated it on the smoker 180 degrees. Any ideas? Would covering the top of the turkey with tin foil increase the heat at the breast to a higher temp? What is a safe temp if the thighs are done?
