Using a beer can when barbecuing a bird results in a subtle and delicious flavour in the succulent meat. All you need is a can of beer, a chicken, a barbecue and some seasonings!
Something else. Surely you should not discard that half beer. This should say drink it while the chicken cooks. - 28 Oct 2008
I make this on a regular basis - with a couple of differences. 1. I use a dry spice rub on the chicken and not in the beer. 2. I have a rack that holds the can and the chicken (see photo) 3. Sometimes I just use fruit juice in the can. Pineapple works well. Why waste a perfectly good beer ? This can also be done in the oven. - 21 Jul 2012
Something else. Didn't discard the beer-drank it! And it only took us two hours to cook but maybe our chicken was smaller - 08 Oct 2008
