My turkey cooked in half the time... Guesses why?

Hello!
I put my turkey in at 12:30, and now a little over two hours later, it's reading 160 F. It's 14 pounds, and we cooked with without stuffing on a rack in a 350 degree oven. It was brined and has herb butter under the skin. Everything we read said that it would take 3 to 4 hours! Does anyone know why this happened.
As a side note, it looks and smells absolutely gorgeous, the skin is brown etc. The only problem is that the side dishes are all still cold... Oh well!
