Put 12 lb. turkey on overnight at 210. 7 hours later it was burnt to a crisp and weighed about 3 lbs. Put meat probe in Tex and set at 200, 45 minutes later it was reading 375. Should I assume the thermostat needs replacing ? Took back cover off , but can't seem to figure out how to remove thermostat. Any help would be appreciated.

Sure sounds like, at a minimum, a calibration is in order. Give the great folks at SmokinTex a call, they are extremely helpful in situations like this.
