TheAdams- Beer Can Chicken
What do you need for ingredients???
Just grab a beer out of the fridge (I use a 24oz can because we typically try and get a larger chicken), some seasonings, and a whole uncooked chicken.
The nice part about this recipe is that you don't have to be really precise or make up your own sauce or anything that takes time before you are ready to cook. I usually use a pre-mixed rub that we have around the house or you can experiment with your favorite seasonings for your own unique rub.
Be careful on this part because it will likely fizz over if you pour it all at once. While all this is going on, have your grill on high so its ready for cooking whenever you are done with the chicken.
Balance the can with chicken on top on the grill, over the side that has been turned off.
The chicken will start to look puffy and crunchy on the outside when it is getting close to being done, but I always check internal temp with a meat thermometer to make sure it hits 170 degrees.
