    BBQ Beer-Can Chicken on a Gas Grill

    A classic of the barbecue circuit, barbecued beer-can chicken involves resting a whole chicken upright on a can of beer and grill-roasting it. The odd technique accomplishes two things at once: As the beer turns to steam, it flavors the interior of the chicken and keeps it moist. The smoke bathes the exterior and turns the skin crisp. Or at least that’s the idea; we have tasted too many bland, greasy beer-can chickens with not a whole lot of beer flavor. We wanted crisp-skinned, moist, beer- and smoke-flavored chicken. Here’s what we discovered:

    Test Kitchen Discoveries

    Bank the coals in the grill on either side of a disposable aluminum pan. The coals will cook the chicken evenly and the pan will catch dripping fat from the chicken.

    Open the top of the can wide open with a church key to allow the greatest amount of steam to escape. The normal hole is far too small.

    Lance the chicken’s skin with a skewer to make holes from which rendering fat can escape.

    Rub the chicken liberally with a spice rub on top of and underneath the skin.

    Coat the chicken with a sweet-tart glaze towards the end of cooking to improve the chicken’s flavor and color. If applied too early, the glaze will burn.

    STEP BY STEP

    Flavor That's More Than Skin Deep

    From its crisp, spiced skin to moist meat, beer-can chicken is flavored through and through. Here's how to get the ultimate beer-can chicken experience from your grill.

    1. Use a church key can opener to punch holes in the top of the can; this will allow the maximum amount of steam to escape.

    2. Loosen the skin on the breasts and thighs of the chicken by sliding your fingers between the skin and the meat.

    3. Massage the spice mixture on the skin, under the skin, and inside the cavity.

    4. Using a skewer, poke the skin all over to render as much fat as possible.

    BBQ Beer-Can Chicken on a Gas Grill
    Makes 2 Chickens serving 4 to 6

    Look for chickens that weigh between 3 and 3 1/2 pounds; if they are significantly larger, you may have trouble fitting the lid on the grill. To hold the wood chips, you will need a small disposable aluminum tray.

    Spice Rub
    2 tablespoons packed light brown sugar
    2 tablespoons paprika
    1 tablespoon table salt
    1 tablespoon ground black pepper
    1 teaspoon cayenne pepper

    Glaze
    2 tablespoons packed light brown sugar
    2 tablespoons ketchup
    2 tablespoons white vinegar
    2 tablespoons beer
    1 teaspoon hot sauce

    Beer and Chicken
    2 (12-ounce) cans beer
    4 crumbled bay leaves
    2 whole chickens (3 to 3 1/2 pounds each), patted dry
    4 cups wood chips

    1. For the spice rub: Mix brown sugar, paprika, salt, black pepper, and cayenne in bowl.

    2. For the glaze: Stir brown sugar, ketchup, vinegar, beer, and hot sauce together in medium bowl. Add 1 tablespoon spice rub.

    3. For the rest: Measure out 1 cup beer from each can; take 2 tablespoons from measured beer and add to ketchup glaze. Prepare beer cans as shown in photo 1, and add 2 crumbled bay leaves to each can.

    4. Prepare chickens as shown in photos 2 through 4.

    5. Soak wood chips in bowl of water to cover for 15 minutes, then place chips in small aluminum tray and play tray directly on primary burner. Turn all burners to high and close lid, keeping grill covered until wood chips begin to smoke, about 15 minutes. Leave primary burner on high, and turn off all other burners. Place chickens (on cans) on cool part of grill.

    6. Cover and grill until skin is well browned and very crisp, 40 to 60 minutes. Brush with ketchup glaze and grill, covered, until thigh meat registers 170 degrees on instant-read thermometer, about 20 minutes longer. Wearing oven mitts or using wad of paper towels, transfer chickens (still on cans) from grill to cutting board and let rest for 10 minutes. Hold base of can with oven mitt or wad of paper towels, insert tongs into neck cavity of chicken, and pull chicken off can. Carve and serve.

    If the "beer can" type grilling is something you enjoy, this is the better way...

    Vertical Roaster with Infuser by Norpro

    Recommendation Status - Recommended

    Testers’ Comments

    With the longest shaft of the lineup, this roaster makes the chicken sit tall without any chance of getting soggy from slumping into the fat. Its open design helps the bird brown evenly and makes it easy to remove when all done. While the metal basin is slightly shallow compared to some of the other models, it catches enough drippings to make a good pan sauce. For our Glazed Roast Chicken recipe, we were able to place the roaster within a roasting pan. Cleanup was a little messy, but chicken grease scrubbed off relatively easily. Two curved metal bars that form the shaft detach from the tray for cleaning, and lie flat for storage.

    I just made the macaroni salad, and clearly will have to make more for tomorrow. WOW... but I used red pepper to give it more kick.

    Northerners will never understand good cooking or the opportunity to drink beer for purpose. Some of the worst food I ever ate in my life was while I lived in Michigan. Culinary prowess is not up there.

    I mean they take perfectly good crawfish and use them as bait.

    I resent the lack of good cooking remark!

    Then again my dad's a black guy who was born in Missisippi so that might affect his culinary choices a little (Fucking **** he hasn't made fried chicken in like forever).

    Edit: BTW I've had Mark's cooking. I would pay him just to eat, man.
