Very good. Loved the spice mixture. I let it marinate in the rub for a few days. Using the beer can method does produce a much more tender, juicy chicken. The only downside for me is that the skin doesn't get quite as crispy as if the chicken was in a normal roasting pan. I usually take the chicken off the beer can, and roast it breast side up for a few minutes. My kids complain if the skin isn't super crispy. Thanks for sharing this, we enjoyed it.
