Smile Beer can chicken...

Until a few days ago I had never heard of "Beer Can Chicken". Well, I made it last night on the grill and it was really good! I used a 5 lb. chicken, rubbed with olive oil and cajun seasoning in and out. Took the top off the beer can, drank half and put some olive oil and cajun seasoning in with the beer. Set the can on the grill stuck the chickens butt over it and it stood up pretty good. Grill on med-low about an hour and it made my tongue slap my brains out! I'll certainly make this again.

I'll have to try that. I always drank the Beer and ate the grilled chicken. I have never mixed them in cooking.

I use Lowreys season salt on ours, as the wife likes it better that way. 1 can of beer is not enough though. You have to have cold beverages while your "watching" over things. And Budweiser fits the bill for me.

I have a great little holder for Beer Butt Chicken that will also hold 4 potatoes around the chicken and has a grease pan under it to save on the grill cleaning. We have been doing this for several years. It is the best chicken on the grill ..bar none..to make your taster stand up. We use one burner ,on low,and put the bird on the other side of the grill. Cook for 2 hours and rotate it in about an hour and a half to brown the back half. Have made and tried several different racks but find this one the best. We are having company this weekend and they asked if I would make beer butt chicken so you know what they think of this method. Just season the bird to your taste and go for it Chortdraw
