Turkey Barbecue


  • 1 turkey (about 12 pounds)
  • 1/2 cup butter, melted
  • 2 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce
  • 2 tablespoons steak sauce
  • 1 tablespoon garlic powder
  • 1 tablespoon onion powder
  • 1 tablespoon lemon-pepper seasoning
  • 1 tablespoon pepper
  • 2 to 3 teaspoons cayenne pepper
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup chicken broth
  • 12 sandwich rolls, split
  • Lettuce leaves and tomato slices, optional


  • 1. Place turkey, breast side up, on a rack in a roasting pan. Combine the butter, Worcestershire sauce, steak sauce and seasonings; rub 3 tablespoons over turkey. Cover and refrigerate remaining butter mixture. Bake turkey, uncovered, at 325° for 3 to 3-1/2 hours or until a thermometer reads 180°, basting occasionally with pan drippings.
  • 2. Remove turkey; pour drippings into a saucepan. When turkey is cool enough to handle, remove meat from the bones. Shred turkey and return to the roasting pan. Add broth and remaining butter mixture to the drippings; bring to a rolling boil. Pour over shredded turkey.
  • 3. Cover and bake at 325° for 25-30 minutes or until heated through. Serve on rolls with lettuce and tomato if desired.
