Beer Can Chicken

This could quite possibly be the easiest recipe besides cereal or peanut butter and jelly sammich’s. It’s so darn tasty because the chicken is nice and moist from beer evaporating up into the bird while it’s cooking.

make sure to empty out half the beer out of the can so it doesn’t bubble over during cooking

I like to use a darker style beer so more of the carmel and molassas flavors come out but you can really use any beer you want.

    I love BCC! Cook every year for “fakesgiving” and it’s an awesome dish in the summertime. Highly recommend.

    I prsume you open the can of beer before the heat blast it. Otherwise, I think it might explode!
