Beer in the rear chicken




combat load:

12oz beer (anything but whimpy will work)
fresh rosemary
extra virgin olive oil
paprika
cummin
salt(kosher) & pepper <-----the greatest spices of all time
butter spray
grill----oak hardwood lump coals
4-5lb bird, i cooked it for 2 hours ranging from 350 to 400 degrees on the far side of grill, when the internal temp reached 180 i rang the dinner bell!

you can buy a beer can chicken holder or you can stand it up without it, just make sure its upright and dont forget to take a swig off the beer first(chefs secret!)

i like this concept, the beer-steam logic makes sense, rosemary and chicken are always amazing, paprika and cummin compliment, salt n pepper are the greatest spices of all time, ill give it a mist of butter for than golden crisp exterior, before anything i dry the chicken and then brush a tiny amount of olive oil, put some rosemary in the beer and on the chicken (you can also add butter, onions, garlic, etc to the beer), its just something to really play around with and shape it around your specific taste, this was no specific recipe, im still a white belt at cooking and just used what was in my kitchen, im always open to ideas or suggestions...

my main point of this is to bring up the idea, maybe youve forgotten about it, maybe youve never heard of it, maybe you have ideas for it, i love food and love what food does for the mind and body..if you try this, i hope ive served you well! thank you

I've never seen a rack like that. I use a Steven Raichlen bird holder.
Nice looking birds.

That's a nice rack. With so many on the market which one is the best? Have you tried any of the others?

In all the truth it doesnt matter. Back in my russian days, we did not have any kind of racks. You just put the chicken on the top of a can and it just seats there and cooks. it is a toy, nice toy, but still a toy.

That one at the top of that page is the one I have. I like it because I don't always have an empty can available and never use beer anymore, so I'll add whatever to the container that came with it. It's only fault is if I am doing a roasting size bird the pan will get pretty full. Too full to carry. Nothing a turkey baster won't take care of.

I like toys.. Wouldn't mind having one for my grill. I need new grilling baskets to..

Something about the beer can method grosses me out. And people drink it after wards?

Was just looking at hot dog roasting utensils. Thumbing through a tail gating " Grilled " magazine.. I was shocked by some that I saw.

Does all of the beer ever steam out of the can?

No, Chef Munky, you don't drink the beer afterwards--you do drink (or pour off) some of the beer so it doesn't boil over. The liquid does not need to be beer--plain water, fruit juice, wine--any kind of liquid will do. I never find that the chicken has a beer flavor but the method does seem to make for a nice juicy bird.

And those look wonderful!!

You could use any leftover beer in the gravy.
