It was awesome. I will make it again. I have deep fried turkeys before so I was confident in the procedures I was doing, but it does turn BLACK about 15 minutes into deep frying. I recommend watching the video so you know you are doing it right because with some of the negative post, those people saying it was spicy probably injected the marinade into the turkey. It is a marinade for the outside. Don't inject, otherwise the oil won't burn the spices away. Mine wasn't spicy at all and I don't like spicy foods. When preparing the marinade, I can see why people were worriedabout it being spicy, but it will come out perfect.
A couple of people weren't paying attention when I said it was going to come out BLACK. They thought I murdered the turkey. We cut into it and it was nice and juicy. Read up on how long to cook per pound and at what temp, but we did it at 350 degrees (was hovering around 325 degrees for some time as it heated up after putting the turkey in. 3.5 minutes per pound. 18lb bird was just over an hour. Also I multiplied the mixture by 1.5 since the original amount is for a 12-14lb bird. Again, look online for proper cooking temperatures, etc. Some Government sites have standards to follow, make sure you read those. But, the temp and time perpound was what they told me.
