Lemon Barbecued Turkey

Ingredients
  Lemon juice 1⁄2 Cup (8 tbs)
  Worcestershire sauce 2 Tablespoon
  Brown sugar 2 Tablespoon
  Salt 1⁄4 Teaspoon
  Garlic powder 1⁄4 Teaspoon
  Dry mustard 1⁄4 Teaspoon
  Paprika 1⁄4 Teaspoon
  Half turkey 8 Pound (Thawed)
  Margarine 1⁄4 Cup (4 tbs)
Directions

GETTING READY
1) At least 2 hours before barbeque time, blend together all the ingredients, except for the margarine and turkey.
2) In a large, heavy-duty plastic bag, place the turkey.
3) Over the turkey, pour the marinade and seal the bag so as to retain the marinade.
4) In a shallow pan, place the bag and refrigerate for about 2 to 8 hours, turning occasionally. The longer the marinade time, the more intense the flavor will be.

MAKING
5) Remove the turkey from the marinade and drain it.
6) Melt the margarine and add it to the remaining marinade.
7) In a covered barbeque, grill the turkey or roast it in a 325 degrees oven, brushing with the marinade frequently till the meat thermometer hits a temperature of 180 to 85 degrees (roast for about 22 minutes per pound).

SERVING
8) Place the cooked turkey on a decorative serving platter and serve while it is still piping hot. Makes a delectable and healthy main course dish.
