DIRECTIONS

  • Rinse and pat dry hen.
  • Drink 1/2 the beer and set aside the rest in the can.
  • Then pour a shot of tequila and drink with a slice of lime.
  • Spray can with 1/2 beer with cooking spray.
  • Have another shot of tequila with lime.
  • Put some of the oregano, a couple of the peppers, a couple of the garlic cloves, a pinch of cumin and a pinch of chili powder in the neck cavity of the hen.
  • Stuff opening with a wad of aluminum foil to seal cavity.
  • Have another shot of tequila and lime and while you're at it add a shot to the beer can with a piece of lime, the rest of the oregano, peppers, and garlic cloves.
  • Push the can into to rear end of the chicken so that the hen can sit up.
  • Place the chicken in a foil pie pan or square cake pan.
  • Have another tequila shot, then rub the rest of the cumin, chili powder, and the salt onto the outside of the chicken.
  • Have a couple more shots while your coals get ready on the pit.
  • Place the pan with the chicken on the pit and close the grill.
  • Let chicken cook for 1 hour on medium hot pit.
  • (Of course, this means more tequila shots.) Baste hen with juices in pan.
  • Take off grill when done and let rest 10 minutes before serving with a squeeze of lime and some drippings.
  • If there is any Tequila left be sure to serve with the chicken also.
  • This can be done in the oven as well on 350 degrees for 1 hour.
