Beer Can Chicken

The chicken comes out perfectly seasoned and juicy every time. This is perfect for any season, you can grill it in the summer or serve it up with some baked acorn squash in the fall!

Beer Can Chicken (Serves 3-4)
Time: 15min Prep and 70-90min Cook

- 3.5lb Whole Chicken
- 1can of Beer
- Olive Oil, to rub on chicken
- 1tbsp Sea Salt and Pepper
- 1tsp of : Ground Ginger, Garlic Powder, Onion Powder, Paprika, Brown Sugar, Oregano

  1. Preheat oven to 450 degrees.
  2. Rub the entire chicken with olive oil. Make sure to get under the skin as well.
  3. Apply desired amount of rub onto the chicken, under the skin, and into the cavity.
  4. Drink half of the beer and add brown sugar and herbs of your choice into the can. ( I like to use thyme or rosemary)
  5. Finally, place the bird on top of the can and carefully place it in the oven.
  6. Roast the bird for about 10mins and reduce the heat to 350 degrees. The chicken should roast for another 70-90minutes. Check with a meat thermometer that it is cooked throughout.
