Beer Can Roast Chicken on the Grill

I love barbecuing but never thought I’d be cooking a whole roasting chicken on the grill! This recipe is super duper easy and the flavors from the BBQ really make this a tasty delight. Enjoy!


1 16 oz can of beer

1 whole chicken

salt & pepper

Preheat your gas grill to medium high heat.

Clean and remove any pin feathers from the chicken. Salt and pepper the inside and outside of the chicken. Pour out half the contents of the beer can and with the chicken upright (so the beer doesn’t spill out) insert the can into the cavity of the chicken. Prop the chicken upright on the grill so that the beer can is upright. The chicken should balance so you can leave it there with the bbq grill hood closed. (Measure your grill beforehand to be sure it fits!) Cook until thermometer reads 160 for at least 15 seconds or until juices run clear. Enjoy!
