I made this thanksgiving 2011 because of all the rave reviews and I regret that more people were not honest about the outcome. This marinade is very hot to start, and yes, it is spicy when you eat the turkey. Not a 10 on 1-10 scale hot, but more like a 7. Additionally, the marinade turns VERY SALTY for some reason. I had 2 hypertensives who couldn't eat their dinner. We threw all the skin away so we didn't have to taste the hot spices with our leftovers. On a positive note, it was moist, as all fried turkeys usually are when done correctly. However, the flavor of this turkey DOES NOT GO WITH TRADITIONAL THANKSGIVING SIDE DISHES. I will make it again, but not as my go to thanksgiving recipe. I would use this more for a tailgate or superbowl event with potato salad etc. I wish others who used it for thanksgiving had been more honest. Sorry, just not good for thanksgiving, but it was OK....
