Doing a beer can chicken is the only way to really enjoy a whole roaster whether you can do it on the barbecue or in the oven. I don't use a traditional beer can, I prefer to use the new style aluminum long neck cans, either 16 or 22 oz size, it gives the bird more stability, and it also comes out of the neck cavity of the bird which makes it easier to remove. I don't leave beer in the can, instead I put some tap water in the can and add seasoning to it. Also,I have found out that if you tuck the wingtips up behind the neck like you do with a turkey they will drop down to a normal posture when the bird is done. I also cut the skin between the body and the thighs when the bird is done to drain the juices out and use for this for a gravy base..Enjoy
