Reminds me of the wife and I's first Thanksgiving together. Poor thing stuffed the turkey with the giblets still inside, cooked it on 450 and it was crisp, dry, and a dark shade of brown, and her first ever attempt at making gravy I could have used to stucco a ceiling.

I'm laughing, but I know we are depending on the little plastic thingy too.
Oldskeetshooter gave you good advice. Happy Thanksgiving.

There's a reason I do all the cooking for holidays in my house. My lovely wife would consider that turkey just about perfect. Her mom burned everything when she was growing up and she adopted the same cooking method. When I started cooking for her she couldn't believe that things actually tasted good. Poor girl was 19 before she ever had a steak that wasn't well done. She saw me order one rare and thought it was raw when it came out. When I convinced her to try a bite she was shocked. She never understood why people liked steak before then. The way she ate them was just as a platform for the A1 sauce.

I think it's safe to say it's fully cooked. Two words: turkey tetrazini.

I'm all for those little pop-up gauges, but when things start looking more like charcoal than turkey, I also rely on a hand-held meat thermometer. As we all know, two is one and one is none. Good example of how that's all too true, sometimes, with cooking.
Of course, if the fire had to be put out with the fire extinguisher, perhaps even the tetrazini is out. Depends on how many canisters were used.

I can pretty much guarantee its "done". I believe the accepted safe temp for meat is 160 degree internal temp. As ccw alluded to, location of the test is important.
Happy Thanksgiving ya'all
