Okay, I'll think about it. How much does a 40 ounce Fosters sell for, anyway?

C'mon, Caine. You know you don't care. Go nuts and buy the whole six-pack.

Caine: Try using a 46oz juice can for a turkey or a #303 can. Just remove the contents, rinse and fill with what you want. The 46oz can would make a better stand for balancing the turkey.

For a small bird, use a can of Red Bull + !

one more question about temperature

I was just looking at some chicken cooking sites and was wondering...

Is that a good place to take the chickens temperature? What if it was a small bird?

See about 3rd picture down on the right hand side. It shows a temperature guage

Yes. It is recommended that you test the temperature in the thickest part of the thigh. You should be careful not to hit bone as that can give you a false reading.

results of BEER CAN chicken

The beer can chicken came out VERY juicy. A few problems i ran into

1. The can was hard to get in there "lol". Maybe a skinnier can next time. But i did get it jammed up there. The can bent a little in the process.

2. The thigh was small. This is concidered one of the smallest chickens you can buy I think. I tried the thermometer in the thigh but it registered at 166 an hour later and I just knew it wasn't done. I put it in a thick part of the breast and it was about 145 or so. Left it in there until 166 and than took out and covered with tinfoil while I made gravy and cooked the rolls. Total time in oven did end up being an hour and half on 375 degrees.

That's about it pretty much. WOW JUICY!!!!!! The mashed and carrots came out good too. I threw the carrots in with the chicken after the chicken had been cooking for about 1/2 hour to 45 minutes.
OH YUM
I couldn't stop eating it.
