Do we lower the heat? How low?

What temp are you cooking the bird at? You should definitely turn down the heat to slow down cooking. Our temp + time + weight guide is here: https://food52.com/blog...
You could also finish the turkey ahead of time and then refer to Ina's advice: https://food52.com/blog...
Abbie is a trusted source on General Cooking.
What is it on right now and how far ahead of schedule are you? The turkey can take a long rest, up to an hour, and be totally fine. But normally you'll want to roast at 325, yours is likely a 4-5 hour turkey. If it's going way to fast try 300 degrees, and then maybe a heeat blast at the end to crisp the skin.
I agree with Abbie!
