I've got a couple recipes for "Beer-Can" chicken, or "Beer Butt" chicken, maybe even for "Tampon Chicken", as I've seen it referred to on this site. I haven't tried it yet. Just today, PeppA asked me if I would ever do that. I haven't gotten around to it yet.

I used to have a vertical chicken roaster, about 10 years ago. Think the wire stand, but it doesn't hold a can, just has a cyndrylical post that goes up through the body cavity to hold the bird upright. I got rid of it years ago, when I thought I wouldn't roast chicken again (boy, was I wrong on that!).

One thing to think about, if you are going to try roasting a Beer Can chicken at home, in your oven, try doing it in a 10" or 12" cast iron skillet. That pan will collect all the juices, and you can transfer the bird to a platter when it's done, and make a gravy from the drippings.

BTW, I smoked two chickens tonight. I had them flat out on their backs for 4 hours, and cooked them at a range of temps from 200 - 250F, depend on how much fuel was burning. These were the moistest birds I've ever had, and I've even brined a few chickens, then roasted them. I didn't brine the two I did today.

Ooooh Dove I think that Paul would be enjoying that chicken so much he would forget about the beer. I don't care for beer, but the chicken made that way is pure ambrosia. Never had chicken so juicy and delicious. Never.

When I fixed the chicken, I fixed it in the oven. All I did was rub the chicken with salt and pepper, added a few stalks of celery inside the cavity, inserted beer (ouch), added some garlic, onion and a few spices inside the can (watch out it will fizz out some) and put a medium onion in the neck. The flavor was awesome. Don't know if any of the spices, onion or celery added anything to the chicken or not but was delish!!!! Oh noooo I am starting to sound like Rachael Rae.........no, no, help.
