Beer can chicken

My girlfriend and I found this recipe online and made it yesterday for Easter Sunday.

This basic variation of the "beer in the butt" chicken recipe combines the flavors of a great spice rub with the flavors steamed out of the beer can.
INGREDIENTS:
  • 1 whole chicken (4-5 pounds)
  • 1 12 ounce can beer (room temperature)
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 2 sprigs fresh rosemary
  • 2 teaspoons olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon dried thyme
  • 1/2 teaspoon red pepper flakes, crushed
  • Juice of 1 lemon
  • For Rub:
  • 1 teaspoon paprika
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon fresh rosemary, chopped
  • 1 teaspoon dried thyme
  • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper, ground
  • 1/2 teaspoon lemon zest
PREPARATION:

Comnine all rub ingredients in a small mixing bowl. Set aside. Remove giblets and the neck from chicken. Sprinkle all over with rub, including cavity. Open can of beer and discard half of it. Place, minced garlic, rosemary, thyme, lemon juice, and pepper flakes in it.





Here are a few shots we took to show a before and after pic. We had the chicken along with garlic mashed potatoes, corn and green beans. It was all very yummy and I recommend it to anyone. We did use the stove instead of a grill though because it was drizzling outside.
