    i then wrapped with foil tight to trap in moisture for a few hours

    [​IMG]

    I then place in a pan and coat with a thick layer of butter to help crisp the skin

    [​IMG]

    then the last hour i coated a couple layers of the apricot glaze for a nice sweet glaze

    this turkey was very tasty,  the skin was crispy and sweet with the apricot,   but after a couple seconds the hot injection in the meat hit you and really added a nice kick

    we had three turkeys and mine was gone wth the other two pleanty leftovers!!

    made me smile

    thanks for the votes everyone

    Sounds like a great, straight-forward technique, and that color is BEAUTIFUL!!!  Never would have thought to spike up turkey with hot sauce and paprika.  Love using apricot jam and dried apricots in things - they have a nice tart/sweet thing goin' on.   The kid's right, that's one bitchin' bird!!!
