Okay, donko. Somewhere here on DC is a discussion about beer can chicken but, for the life of me, I can't find it right now.
However, you can do beer can chicken in the oven just as nicely as on the grill. I've done it many times. And, yes, all you need is some liquid/broth/beer and some herbs/seasonings and you will have a delicious chicken.
I'll look further and see if I can find the reference for you. Be patient. Help is on its way.
