15th Night

Beer Can Chicken

This is one of Mike's favorite things to cook I think!

You will need....
1 whole chicken, we used a three pound roaster
McCormick Rotisserie Chicken Seasoning
1 can of beer
Olive Oil

Wash and dry the chicken. Lightly based with olive oil. Sprinkle liberally with the seasoning. We usually do a little extra pepper to our tastes. Now if you have thought ahead you could do this the night before and let it marinate in the Frigidaire over night. Pre heat the grill. Open can of beer and drink up to 1/2. Place chicken on top of beer can. Now this may take a little finesse, or even two people. Place chicken on the grill upright. Cook on medium heat for two to three hours. I asked Mike his timing method and he said "it's chicken, I cook it until it is done." Use your handy dandy meat thermometer to check after two hours.

The opinion: We all love this. Very yummy and moist. The skin seems to be extra good on this. The kiddo loves it.
