It's "green"! I got tired of having to look for, and then throw away, a can and a foil casserole dish every time I wanted to make it, which is at least once a week during the spring, summer and fall!

Another thing I do is use my kitchen shears to make the opening of the can larger.
I heat the beer and seasonings on the stove top to boiling first. Then carefully put the chicken over it. The holder works good for this step to.

I always just used the can and used the legs to support the chicken.
My wife bought me two of these some years ago. And yes, we use beer and seasonings.

No reason not to use real beer. What advantage would you gain with phony beer?

Alcoholics and some religious groups avoid all alcohol. Even non-alcoholic beer contains trace amounts of alcohol as I recall.

Even after cooking, alcoholic beverages (beer, wine, spirits) still contain alcohol. It never cooks off completely.

It cooks off completely enough as to have no affect on the brain.

"Completely enough..."

The issue is not 'getting drunk' or 'not getting drunk'.

If your reason for avoiding alcohol is religious, zero is the only acceptable amount. Same if you are an alcoholic. It's not a physiological issue.

I view it that way. Can't help with religious beliefs. Those are personal.
