Very thorough directions, mine didn't have the greatest taste, but I imagine it was because the spice mix I used wasn't flavorful enough. Excellent recipe!

SO,SO GOOD! We used Cavender's greek seasoning for our rub and applied it under the skin, brushing the outside with melted butter. I also used a quarter of an onion to plug the neck. Delicious!!!

We really enjoyed this; very tasty and easy to make. We used a Lager beer in a 12 oz can and made 2 chickens. I think it was even better the next day, cold, picked off the bone. Very moist chicken, indeed. I'm serving this as leftovers for lunch tomorrow, over greens. We will be making this again in the future....even during cold winters. The grill is on the patio, right off the kitchen...it's so easy to just prepare and throw on the grill for almost 2 hours without bothering with it and we'll wait inside the warm house until it's cooked, preparing the sides. Used McCormick brand chicken rub for the dry rub seasonings. Served with a side of cheesy potatoes and brussels sprouts.

This is a great chicken recipe. I rubbed it down with some salt, lemon pepper, and rose marry leaves and a bit of paprika. I also added a dash of the spices in the bear can. I will be making this again. This is the first that we ever cook chicken with beer and it’s a keeper. This almost tasted like our Thanks giving turkey which we marinate and inject with our favorite wine or champing and 2 cups of melted butter, and another cup of orange juice. Thanks for sharing!

we made our first beer can chicken tonight, with a tallboy of Guiness, lots of poultry rub straight from our favorite grocery store deli, and no vegetable oil. It was a bit of a mess, and we had to finish cooking it in the oven when after we carved it we realized parts were a bit raw. But once it was done it was delish!

I've made beer can chicken many times but never thought about putting rosemary in the can. It made a big difference. I also put some of my dry rub seasoning in there, as someone had suggested. There is a beer can chicken stand available at most hardware stores. It has a place to insert the can and provides you with a stand that is easier to set up. I also put the stand in a large sauce pan to catch the drippings.

YUMMY! Used a gas grill with outside burners on low-med and cooked for about 1 1/4 hours. Followed directions exactly and the chicken was outstanding. Excellent recipe!
