I have done beer can chicken in the oven, but it can also be done on a wet plank in the barbecue. Outcome is nice and moist with a smoky flavor!! Yum Yum Always prepare plank in advance, by soaking minimum 1hour,up to 24 hours. If well soaked and closely monitored during cooking times, planks can be used more than once. If you have a metal bucket, or a lake like we do, resoak the plank, and it can be used again next barbecue. Also, planks can be soaked in liquids other than water.. Example... apple juice, beer, wine .. Use your imagination.
