Beer Can Chicken Recipe: Delicious! This is one of our favorite summer time grilling recipes.
Ingredients: whole chicken, beer of your choice, butter and your favorite seasoning mix. We always make two because one is never enough.
Preheat grill to medium heat or 350 degrees F. Mix your favorite seasonings in a small bowl. Place a 3/4 full can of beer in the center of a plate.
Rinse chicken under cold running water. Discard giblets and neck from chicken; drain and pat dry. Rub the chicken down with softened butter. Cover the chicken with your seasoning mix, rub over the entire outside of bird. Place the chicken over the can of beer with the legs on the bottom; keep upright.
Place tin foil under the chickens on the grill to prevent flare up and burning. Close the lid and BBQ the chicken until the thermometer reads 170 degrees F. around 1.5 hours. Let rest for 10-15 minutes before slicing.
If you have any left over chicken you should try our Chicken Enchilada Pasta recipe.
