Great idea, Frank. I can't grill, but I do have a roaster with a flat rack. I could spatchcock a chicken and cook it over the beer or even use chicken pieces.

The first BCC rack that I had said to add a little liquid to the drip pan. I found that the skin did not crisp as well as leaving the drip pan dry.

I never noticed any flavor difference between beers either, but I notice a difference between using beer and using pop. I prefer white pop like Sprite or 7 Up. I'll bet that would enhance the chilies.

That's the only redeeming quality of the contraption...the positioning of the chicken.
The rest of it is a complete waste of time and resources...Drink all of the beer and fill the can with tap water for weight.

Fun!

I use Carling Black Label and I inject some into the chicken.

Carling Black Label... there's a beer I haven't heard of in years.

Didn't realise that you get South African beer by you? I know they export Amarula. What else do you get there from SA?

Once upon a time, when I was a youth, Carling Black Label was an American beer brewed in Massachusetts and possibly other US locations.

Lol! Justed checked the origin, seems it's a Canadian beer brewed in Australia. Looks like someone stole someone idea somewhere :) Wonder if all the Black Lables taste the same?
