Beer Can Chicken

This chicken really rocks. It was the rub ingredients that prompted me to try the recipe, but it’s the way it tastes that’s going to have me making this again and again.

Beer Can Chicken With A Twist
  • 1 large chicken
  • 1/2 can beer 6 ounces of a 12 ounce can, any brand, any variety
  • 1/3 cup paprika
  • 1/3 cup salt
  • 1/3 cup black pepper
  • 2/3 cup packed brown sugar
  1. Rinse the chicken in cold water and pat very dry, inside and out with paper toweling.
  2. Mix the 4 dry ingredients together. Use this rub inside and out of the cleaned, dry chicken. Be generous.
  3. Place 1/2 can of beer in the center of a roasting pan. Position"bottom" of chicken over beer and slide chicken over the can of beer until the chicken is"sitting" upright in the pan. The fit will be snug and chicken will be secure.
  4. Roast uncovered at 350 degrees for 1 hour. Do not baste and do not turn the pan. The beer will steam the chicken deliciously.
  5. When done, carefully remove the can of beer from the chicken and serve.

I have cooked 2 or 3 chickens in the same roaster and did not have to adjust cooking time.

This melt-in-your-mouth chicken will get you some rave reviews. Guaranteed!!!
