Made this tonight used my traeger smoker put it on smoke for 20 mins then turned it up to 325 for the rest of the cook, it is the best chicken I've ever made what a killer recipe
EXCELLENT!!! I only used 1 chicken with half of the rub ingredients but the full amount for the glaze. This is the same recipe posted by 2Bleu (see Barbecued Beer Can Chicken - Cook's Country, Barbecued Beer Can Chicken (Cook's Country) on this site) but hepcat1's version has better instructions. I used mesquite wood chips to create the smoke in the grill.
This is the best barbecued chicken that I have ever eaten! Just spicy enough to please the masses! There is a little learning curve with the gas grill to get the temperature right... but once you do, this is super easy to make!
Great for summer barbecues, superbowl parties, etc. Thigh meat leftovers made the best chicken soup, too!
Thanks for the fantastic recipe!
Wish I could give more than 5 stars. This was amazing. Followed the recipe pretty much exactly. Such a lovely crispy skin and nice flavour on the inside. I used a dual beer can cooker on the grill and did another kind of can chicken next to it. Love the blend of flavours in the rub and glaze. This is a keeper!
This chicken was amazing. I only fixed one, but used the same amount of spice rub and glaze and just doubled up on the one chicken I fixed. It turned out perfect. DH said it had just the right amount of spice. So yummy. Thanks for sharing.
this is a great recipe...i changed it up just a bit because i was short on a few ingredients...instead of 2 tblsp of ketchup i did 1 and 1 of chili sauce and added more hot sauce to the glaze...it gave it some GREAT heat without being too spicy!! this is DEFINATELY a keeper!!
I will use this one ALL summer to keep my kitchen cool..PERFECT~~
Only after prepping the chicken did I see there was NO way it would fit sitting up in the barbecue. Oh well..still turned out great in the oven at 350 for about 1 1/2 hours. Very easy, very tasty.
This was very good..we actually cooked a couple of these for a 4th of July party. Great recipe and the chicken is so tender and juicy....this is a keeper for us!
Added garlic powder to the dry rub and cooked with charcoal and mesquite chips - Very good.
