We cooked the 22 lb turkey for an additional 30 minutes and the breast is registering at 160 and thigh at 180. We are nervous it's not cooked. Thanks!

A good rule of thumb is 15-20 minutes per pound at 350F, so I would think you'd need an additional 60 to 80 minutes (of course, it could be less depending on a bunch of circumstances like oven temp, how cold the turkey was when you put it in, etc.). And it would be very unusual for the dark meat to cook faster than the breast. Have you tried slicing into the leg with a sharp knife to see if the juices are running clear?
Thank you so much! We just cut into the dark meat and it's definitely cooked. Happy Thanksgiving!
