I've made this, or a variation of it, quite a few times. It's my favorite way to roast a chicken. A few tips: 1) There are steel wire gizmos that you put the beer can into and sit the chicken on top - that helps keep it from falling over. Otherwise, it's a little top-heavy. 2.) Only use half a can of beer 3) I put the whole contraption into a roasting pan and put potatoes, carrots, what-have-you in the bottom. Delish. The beer cooks the chicken from the inside and keeps it from drying out. Give this a try.

  1. Wash chicken and remove excess fat. Season the chicken inside and out with the crab boil seasoning. Insert the half can of beer inside the cavity of the chicken. Prop the chicken up on the grill. Grill for 1 to 1 1/2 hours withthe grill lid closed.
