Beer can chicken

If you haven't done this one, you've got to try it! Trust me, this is no joke.

Take one whole chicken, wash well. Remove the giblets and the neck from inside the bird.

Season however you like. I like to marinade with a mix of worchestershire, salt, pepper, lemon juice. Then I slice garlic cloves and stuff the slices under the skin of the bird.

Once seasoned, open a can of beer (any type) and place the can in the cavity of the bird! Put the bird standing up on a metal pan to catch drippings. Cook the bird on your pit or in the oven at about 300-325 for an hour to an hour and a half. check the meat temp to determine when it is done.

The beer boils inside the bird. The beer doesn't falvor the meat, but this will be the most moist chicken you have ever eaten!

Just for Stump - you can drink half of the beer before you put it in the bird! But believe me, you don't want to drink it afterwards!

Also for everyone, be careful removing the can. It is very hot!

I have always heard that this was a great way to cook chicken, but I have yet to try it. Thanks for the post

I do beer can chicken all the time, me and the wife love it! I mostly use McCormicks meat rub (chicken flavors of course) to rub on before hand. Throw it on the charcoal grille and slow cook it for about an hour and a half. Dang good stuff!

I have used this method a number of times and the dead bird always turns out fantastic.
