Beer Can Chicken
So yes I got suckered into buying one of those beer can chicken contraptions. And now that summer is winding down I finally decided to use it. Verdict - it was great, easy, and no indoor mess and I may start using it to make rotisserie-style chickens at home rather than buy the store bought ones loaded with sodium.
There is no recipe really. Just rub your favorite dry rub under the skin and pour your desired beer into the bottom. Place the chicken on top and grill at 350 for a little over an hour. (I made the mistake of having the grill a little too hot at first and burned the skin since the fat dripping down created flames.) With chicken it is best to use temperature as guide to check for donenesss. Chicken should be cooked to 165.
