    Jan in Lanark's Note:

    This is from Weber's "Real Grilling" cookbook and it has great flavour. I bought a beer can chicken stand (they're quite cheap)which makes the can and the chicken more secure. Make sure your chicken isn't too big or you may not get the lid closed on your BBQ.

    Ingredients:

    Servings:

    Units: US | Metric

    Rub

    Directions:

    1. 1
      In a small bowl mix the rub ingredients( first six ingredients) together.
    2. 2
      Remove and discard the neck and giblets and excess fat from the chicken. Lightly rub the chicken all over with the oil. Season chicken inside and out with the rub and tuck the wing tips behind the back.
    3. 3
      Open the beer and drink or pour out about half the beer. Put the rosemary, garlic, lemon juice, thyme and red pepper flakes into the beer can to flavour the steam.
    4. 4
      Using a can opener, make two more holes in the top of the can. Place the beer can on a solid surface and plunk the chicken over the can.
    5. 5
      Transfer to the grill, balancing the bird on its two legs and the can like a tripod.
    6. 6
      Grill over Indirect Medium Heat until juices run clear and internal temp in the thickest part of the thigh is 180 degrees F, 1 1/4 to 1 1/2 hours.
    7. 7
      Carefully remove the chicken and can from the grill and let chicken rest for about 10 minutes before you try to lift it fro the can and cutting into serving pieces.

      This was great. I cooked in the oven at 350 because our grill isn' big enough for 2 chickens (I have 7 kids) This will be a favorite in our family.
