The beer can method is simply a means to keep the chicken vertical. It could be used with about any roasting method. In an oven I think you could set a dish under it and collect the juices, then use that in a sauce a la minute.

Check out the vertical roaster. The Bundt pan is cool, 'cause you could make the whole dinner in it (i.e. cut up potatoes, carrots, onions).

I have cooked it many times in the oven, it works great although I dont use the bundt pan, I just use the regular method.

A beer can is nice and cheap for keeping it vertical. I prefer to use a chicken roasting stand myself. A test site did a comparison using the beer can method and without. They found no real benefit, and were just short of calling it an urban legend. They found that the beer in the can did nothing to flavor the chicken.

If using the beer can method and a full sized chicken, I'd suggest buying a tall boy 16 oz can.

I'm wondering if you could do that upside down. That way the dark meat would be the most exposed to heat and cook faster. It would also mean that the juices inside the chicken would drain towards the white meat.

That's what I was thinking. I imagine the breast would be more moist and tender that way. GMTA
