  • ANOTHER QUESTION ON BEER CAN CHICKEN
    Has anyone every basted it with barbcue sauce or put barbecue sauce in the can if so let me know how you did it, i have made them several times but my ds wants one with b.sauce on it
    False
  • RE: ANOTHER QUESTION ON BEER CAN CHICKEN
    Bar BQ sauce in the can would burn I'm afraid. We always use beer in ours but others use cola. We have put a few drops of liquid smoke in the beer. That was pretty good.
    You can always baste the bird after it is just about done with the BBQ sauce.
    Do you have the new little rack that holds the can and the bird yet? Sure is nice. They sell them at WalMart for less then $3.00. No more bird falling over off his can when he cooks. Can happen!!*LOL*
    Enjoy your chicken. We love it cooked that way. So moist.

    Grandmacookn,

    no i don't have that . What is the name so i can look for it.
    False
  • RE: ANOTHER QUESTION ON BEER CAN CHICKEN
    I think it is just called beer can chicken holder. Its metal, has two round rings that hold the can and 3 little feet like things sticking out to balance the can and bird. Its kinda chrome color. Brought in it to see if anything is written on it but there isn't. Just put a soda in it and shucks this thing would be great to put your can in anytime.
    But they are great with the chicken since it will keep it from falling over, which has happened to us before. Then some birds will sit right up there for you. Best to get it fit up into the bird good on a solid surface and balanced and then put on the barbie.

    Topazblue, does yours look like the one I described? Maybe its larger, has a tray or something? Mine was $2.79. Either that or WalMart has really on up on it because of summer.

    Let us know how you like the chicken after you have made it.

    Here is a recipe I found:
    Chicken On the Throne

    1 large 4-5 lb. rooster, washed, fat lumps removed, blotted dry
    8 tbs. sweet & hot rub (recipe follows)
    1`12 oz. can beer (not light beer)
    2 cups hickory or mesquite chips, soaked 1 hour in water& drained

    Sprinkle 2 tbs. rub in rooster’s cavity. Sprinkle 4 tbs. rub on outside of chicken. Open beer can & make 3 or 4 Additional holes in top.

    Drink 1/2 the beer & add remaining spice rub into can. Holding rooster upright, insert the ber can into the cavity. Spread legs to form a tripod so that chicken stands upright on grill .

    Set grill for indirect grilling. Place chicken in the center, away from heat & cook until golden brown 2-2 1/2 hours.

    Sweet ‘n Hot Rub

    3 tbs. kosher salt
    3 tbs. black pepper
    3 tbs. paprika
    3 tbs. brown sugar

    stir together in small bowl until well mixed.

    This chicken is the juiciest, most mouthwatering bird you'll ever try. I also like the aspect of theater when you cook it, because it looks so damned weird on the grill, people will wonder what brand of crack you switched to.

    1 whole chicken
    1 tall can o' beer (16 oz. tallboy)
    olive oil
    4 cloves garlic crushed
    salt and black pepper

    your favorite beer (for marinating the chef!)

    seasoning for chicken (or use a seasoning blend or your own favorites):

    4 cloves garlic, crushed
    fresh basil
    a pinch of cayenne
    salt and pepper

    Start with a hot grill (coals all white and ready to cook). Drink about 1/4 of that can of beer. Set it aside 3/4 full and have a couple of full ones, real beer this time—no sissy canned stuff.

    Get the chicken ready for cookin'. Trim some of the fat, get rid of the giblets (here kitty kitty!). Rub liberally with your favorite meat rub. I prefer olive oil, basil, lots of fresh pressed garlic, salt, and a pinch of cayenne. Some folks like Zartarain's or some such store bought concoction, but whatever.

    Get a can opener or some such tool and open up the top of the can and drop in the crushed garlic.

    Oil up the can and lower that chicken over top of it. The beer can goes into the chicken's body cavity and allows the bird to stand upright.

    Cover your grill and cook the chicken until its wings are loose and the skin turns clear. This is terrific with our garlic and potatoes or roasted corn.
