"From my hero of the grill, Rob Rainford. This to me is the ultimate beer can chicken recipe and the ultimate treat for me! The leftovers make awesome sandwiches, especially grilled cheese sandwiches with monterey jack and some salsa."
Serving Size: 1 (339 g)
Servings Per Recipe: 6
"This is AMAZING!!! The best chicken I've ever had!!! Substituted cooking sherry for the brandy, chicken bouillon for stock, and used 2 small 4 lb birds. We pulled the skin up and inserted the dry rub both underneath and outside the skin. Next time, I will grind 1 Tbsp. of dry rub to powder for the marinade to make injecting easier. We cooked ours in the electric smoker on a Chick Can Rack. Took me 5.5 hours to cook to 180 degrees. NOTE: USDA says chicken is safe to eat at 165 degrees. Just make sure the juices run clear. ELECTRIC SMOKER: Instructions advise to smoke chicken 1 hr per pound. Smoker is much slower than the grill, but the results were EXCELLENT!!! Will repeat soon and often!!"
"Wow this was great! Only change I made was to use sherry instead of brandy because of what I had on hand. Excellent directions and the result was super moist with the perfect amount of smoke flavour."
"Fantastic! I made this using 2 smaller chickens; there was plenty of spice to do this. I took the advice of other reviewers and ground the spices first. No problem injecting. Instead of beer I used Rock Creek Dry Apple Cider which is made by Big Rock Brewery in Alberta, Canada. MMMMMMMM! I think I will try smoking with apple wood chips next time."
"this the best recipe rub and marinade. how to make it, bake it. no saling of bull."
"I forgot to rate this the last time I made it. This is exceptional. I made it exactly as the recipe called for with the exception I used 2 small 3-4 lb birds. The family raves about this. I did have problems injecting the marinade as the seasonings kept getting stuck in the baster needle. I used a beer can chicken holder that I bought from the hardware store to make life easier."
