      I used apricot wheat beer to brine the chicken in because that's what I had on hand and I cooked it out on the charcoal grill. This was AMAZING. My husband told me that I needed to open a restaurant after making this chicken LOL I will be making this again. and again. and again.

      The only thing I added was some coriander the the spice rub. ;)
