This...was...AWESOME! 2nd time I made this recipe and haven't been disappointed yet! The 1st time I used the wood chips ect and was great. The 2nd time I didn't have time, so used my gas grill, preheated with one burner turned off after preheating. Then I used Bud Light &Clamato for the beer and did not alter the rest of the recipe. Amazing!! Moist!! Flavorful!! Thanx!
MOIST is the word here. Mine was done in 1.5 hours at 375 degrees on a gas grill. I thought the rub would have been more prominent than it was, but it was awesome none the less! Made for Football Pool Fall 2008.
Turned out great, my first drunken chicken!! Spicy and juicy...my 5 lb bird was finished in 1.25 hours not the 2 reccommended....I was afraid it might get too brown. Thanks for a good recipe!!
This was great, I did do the beer can chicken but just used the rub on some thinly butterflied boneless skinless chicken breast which I ran under the broiler. The chicken was very tastey and my children ate it up which is worth 15 stars for me. Thank you for the great recipe.
This was outstanding!! My husband grilled 2 chickens last night, one using this recipe and one using #246569 Beer Can Chicken with Rosemary and Thyme. They were both delicious - tender, moist and flavorful. They looked beautiful coming off the grill - made just as directed and they were fabulous!!
Very moist and flavorful chicken. We thought that the seasonings would make this taste sweet and spicy but the rub blended well together and balanced it all out. It was neither sweet or spicy at all. Just flavorful and yummy! We will be using it again and maybe adding more 'heat' and/or 'sweet' to it depending on what we are grilling. This is a great rub that I think would allow chefs to adjust it very easily if they want depending on their personal taste. This chicken came out so moist and juicy without a dry bite to be seen. Great instructions on the grilling as well. They were so very well written and easy to follow that I know even a newbie to grilling would have great success! Thanks for such a wonderful recipe Lazyme!
I first was introduced to Beer Cut Chicken by a recipe here on zaar called Beer Butt Chicken. I have continued to make my chicken this way several times a month during the summer on the grill. You also can do it in your oven. I also tried a Memphis Rub recipe also from zaar. The combination of these two recipes was FANTASTIC! I would highly recommend trying Beer Can Chicken. Our Wal-Mart actually has a metal container designed to hold the beer can and the chicken so it remains straight up while on the grill. Thanks for posting!
