My Cajun Style Turkey Marinade

In time for Thanksgiving my cajun style turkey marinade:

3 tablespoons paprika
4 tablespoon cayenne pepper
1 tablespoon black pepper
1 tablespoon white pepper
1 tablespoon granulated garlic
1 tablespoon onion powder
2 tablespoons season salt
1 teaspoon cumin
1/2 teaspoon parsley (dried flakes are okay too)
1/2 teaspoon oregano
1 1/2 tablespoons kosher salt
3 tablespoons Mrs. Dash
3 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce
1/4 cup honey
12 ounces chicken stock
12 – 16 ounces beer
¼ cup butter
1) You can grind them up until they are a powder if you want.

2) Place the liquid ingredients in a small saucepan and add the ground dry ingredients.  Bring to a boil.  When it comes to a boil, remove from heat and let cool completely.

3) Using a syringe with a large needle, inject the turkey every inch or so.  Do this 24 hours before cooking. 
After 24 hours you can cook the turkey how you like, deep fried, smoked, roasted, etc.
