Spatchcocking a 30 lb turkey

Thank you Karl and Greygarious for your prompt replies, but I still have my original question... with the understanding that I will be using 2 thermometers to ensure that everything is nicely done, how long should I plan as an approximate time for the turkey. Considering I was looking at 8.5 hours without removing the backbone and thighs, I am still planning on getting up early but I don't want to guess that dinner will be at 3 and have the turkey actually done at 1, or 6. If you know of a rough way to estimate it would be greatly appreciated!

Spatchcocking a 30 lb turkey

So I have a turkey that a friend raised that got out of control. It is at least 30 lbs!!! I have decided to spatchcock with the stuffing underneath the breast. I am hoping that I can get an idea of how many minutes per pound to plan the rest of the meal around. I will be using two meat thermometers also.
Thank you!
PS
I will be cutting the legs off and taking the backbone out without breaking the breastbone.
