beer can chicken
Making smoked beer can chicken is easier than you think if you use bottled marinade or salad dressing and a store bought barbeque rub. Cook the beer can chicken in an electric or gas smoker. Or you can smoke beer can chicken in a grill type smoker like a Green Egg or Kamodo Joe. Best of all? Smoked beer can chicken tastes great and is worth the little bit of effort!
Beer Can Chicken is easily the most notorious "cooking with beer" recipe in America, and with good reason. Just look at that mahogany bird, with the perfectly even browning, the juice dripping down the side, and the beautifully crisp skin. Cooking the chicken upright over indirect heat allows the entire thing to cook evenly without turning it once. The beer steams the chicken from within, helping to cook the bird while keeping it incredibly moist and tender.
