What a wonderful, EASY way to cook a whole chicken! We prepared this for my mother-in-law for Mother's Day, and there wasn't a scrap of chicken leftover! We prepared it to the exact specifications of the chef, and it couldn't have turned out any better. Thank you for a simple, but rediculously delicious chicken recipe!

Very Delicious! I used a 12 oz can of Miller Lite. For the rub, I used the wine and garlic seasoning from the Melting Pot. I also added a teaspoon or two of the seasoning to the beer can. I used olive oil instead of vegetable oil. Our grill is small with only 2 burners. I put the left burner on med. high and cooked the chicken on the right burner. I turned the chicken a quarter of a turn every 20-25 minutes. I used a meat thermometer to check for doneness. It was moist and flavorful. My husband loved it. This will be a new summer favorite!

Great! I rubbed the chicken with some of my favorite spices. Stuffed in the beer (Bud Lite) and waited. Best chicken I've had off the grill with so little work. Easiest BBQ I've ever done!

These were great directions to produce a wonderful and moist beer can chicken! I used the "dry rub" from Roasted Turkey Breast With Zesty Dry Rub, substituting dry mustard for the allspice. It turned out absolutely fabulous! Will be making this over and over again!

Quote from DH as we were fighting over the last of the meat from this chicken: "This is by far one of the best roast chicken recipes we've ever tasted." I didn't have a 16 ounce can of beer, so I just used a regular can and it worked just fine. Becase we like garlic, I did stuff some chopped garlic under the skin and rubbed the whole bird with Stubbs BBQ seasoning for an outstanding taste. Amazingly moist with a BBQ flavor that enhanced the chicken, without overpowering it. A complete keeper.

This turned out really pretty and it was an instant hit with the kids who got to see a chicken staring back at them in the oven standing on a beer can. I used the Grillmates Chicken seasoning mix and I also sprinkled some into the beer as well. We cooked it in the oven at 350 for 2 hours and 15 minutes and it came out perfect (We were out of of propane). Thank you for posting such a fun simple recipe for great chicken.
