The Best BBQ Roast Chicken ever!

An excellent idea from America.

Beer can chicken is a very popular barbecue idea, which is now practiced all over the United States.

There are various stories which try to explain why someone should suddenly have an idea, to place a can of beer  up the backside of a chicken prior to barbecuing. But they did! and what followed was a national craze.

Drink half the can of Guinness or beer. Flavour the Guinness in the tin with a bay leaf and add fresh garlic. Wash the chicken and remove the string.

Place the can in to the stand, trim any excess skin from the chicken  and open enough to accept the can.

Slip the chicken over the can and plug the top with an onion, (see picture right)

Season the chicken with a light garlic, pepper and tarragon rub.

Place the chicken on the barbecue using the indirect cooking method for approximately 2 hours or until the juices run clear when pierced with a long fork

Top of chicken

Try curry powder to flavour the beer. Try cola or your favourite soft drink in a can.

3lb chicken

Tin of Guinness or Beer

If you wish you may be able to purchase the beer can chicken stand above. This will improve the stability of the chicken during cooking. You can manage without one, use scrunched up silver foil for stability if required.

Juice pan / Drip Tray

Add a small pie or oven pan to catch the juices from the chicken during cooking, this will leave your barbecue clean and  stop the fat from getting on to the coals.

Place the Guinness can (avoid cans that contain widgets) into the stand. You could also add a little water to the pan for easy cleaning later.

Warning

Be very careful when cooking is complete, remove the tin very carefully from the chicken which still contains very hot beer!

Its best to leave for while and allow it to cool.
