Super good recipe here. Crispy skin and oh-so-tender on the inside. Really easy to throw together too. With summer grilling around the corner, I'll definately be making this one again.

Outstanding! The flavor on this is great but will heavily depend on the rub you decide to use. In any case the bird will be flavorful, moist, and juicy. I had a 5 pound bird and a 12 ounce can of beer and still that worked out ok. So easy to make too. And lots of fun! Thanks for the recipe!

This made for a fun BBQ with my grandson. I had forgotten that I used up my special chicken spice for a previous meal (another senior's moment!) so I rubbed the bird with lemon pepper. It was delicious - skin crispy & meat moist. Thanx Gay!

We raise our own meat chickens, butchered yesterday and poke one in the frig for grilling today. Used your recipe...Oh my...it was sssoooooo yummy wonderful! Think when we finish up with the butchering in a few weeks, I'm going to leave most of them whole so I can use use your recipe. I was quick, simple, got to enjoy the garden while it was grilling. Had left over potato salad and slapped some garlic bread on the grill. How much easier can it get? Thank you so much for sharing!

What an incredibly moist and tasty chicken. We made this last night and it turned out perfect. The only diffrence is we didn't use tall boys. It still turned out wonderful. I have to say the time of cooking is spot on, it was perfectly cooked. Thank you Gay for this "oh so good" chicken, that we will use often.

LOVE this recipe! So easy and the outcome is tasty juicy chicken. Used chicken seasoning rub all over and inside and also put some inside the beer can. Great chicken and super easy!

This is the best chicken I have ever made as a whole roasted chicken. I used the McCormick grillmate for chicken and used Bud Light Lime. This is the most tender chicken and crispest skin. I made it on a gas grill and it was easy and practically no work. I will make again and again.

WOW my chicken turned out awesome!!!!! Fall off the bone chicken that was sooooo moist and flavorful.... I did put the rub in the can and only used a 12oz can. My problem was getting the chicken off the beer can :), it's the little things that kill me! Thanks Gay for a great new dish to my table!
