I first tried beer can chicken when I was in college. A classmate of mine used to make it on his grill about once a week. It’s a fantastic (and easy) way to prepare a whole bird, and it’s pretty tough to screw up, especially if you use one of those special beer can chicken brackets that we were talking about on the show this morning.
There are variations to the recipe all over, but the gist of it is – shove a ½ full can of beer up a whole chicken’s rear…set on grill over indirect heat (or in oven)…fetch in about 90 minutes. The beer steams and flavors the bird from the inside. Crazy juicy. Crazy easy.
