One method is to capture the sql statements , and optimise the queries.
Check to see if high levels of recompilations are occuring

Agree with jackv answer. The query is not optimized and so is the CPU consumption high. Use execution plan and optimize the query to resolve this problem.

In addition to the above said answer, the causes for High CPU usage are
insufficient memory,
poorly written queries,
inadequate indexing,
inappropriate configuration option settings
