Question Turkey injection questions

Hi, my name is David and I have a problem.

I have Cajun injected and smoked many a birds but I messed up.

Normally I put 1/2 a cup of liquid crab boil along with some stock and a few other things.

Well tonight I accidentally shot the turkey up with 1/2 a cup of crab boil "concentrate". I finished one half of the turkey and then realizes what I had done. I tasted some of the sauce and needless to say it had some "heat"

It's a 16lb turkey so all is not lost, the other half will be fine. Just wont have leftovers.

Anyway, my question is: what could I do to dilute the hot injection? I shot it up with water and butter and lemon juice. Do you think that will help? Maybe some sugar water?

I can't think of a single thing to "Fix" this. Perhaps it would be better to spin the story...."I made a half cajun half savory turkey for us"

Food for thought. The only time my brother ever won a chili cook off, the lady that ground his chili peppers for him, made a mistake. Instead of the mild chili he used, she gave him another bag of cayanne.

Re-inject it with beer on that side.

The lemon juice might take away some of the heat. I use lemon to "cool" my mouth when I have eaten something too hot. Butter might help spread it more evenly.

I am curious to hear out it turned out.
