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!!!

Now thats why I voted for you there Rick. That is one of the best looking turkeys that I have seen this year. That also included the 4 turkeys that I smoked, fried, and smo-fried this year.
