Maybe you have seen beer can chicken made before and decided to try it yourself. However, when you tried it, maybe it didn’t turn out quite right or you struggled with how to get it to rest on the beer can. If you have had these problems, you aren’t the only one.
The Steps You Need To Follow To Grill Beer Can Chicken Perfectly Are:
Step 1: Ready the bird
It’s important to make sure that the bird can stand up inside your grill with the lid completely shut, 3-4-pounder works best.
Step 2: Dress
Remove giblets , pat dry with paper towel, rub all over with olive oil. Sprinkle on BBQ spice rub — either something store-bought or DIY-style. For the latter, whisk together Old Bay, chili powder, garlic powder, mustard powder, salt, pepper, cayenne, brown sugar.
Step 3: Prepare
I recommend using a tall boy if your bird’s big enough, since it’s guaranteed to keep chicken upright, a regular old 12-ouncer is fine, too.
Go with something malt-forward, low in alcohol. Almost any lager, pale or mild, will work.
Poke a few extra holes in the top, toss in garlic cloves, lemon slices, a bay leaf.
