Beer Can Chicken

Have you ever heard of Beer Can Chicken?

I have. It is very good. You take a can of beer and a chicken- make them be friends and then grill. We have had it at family gatherings at the cabin. num.

Last time I was here, I requested Beer Can Chicken, but we ran out of time to make it. Oh well. When we came back, my father had this waiting for me.

It is a stand for the beer and chicken. And I can even make it at home in my oven now! I am super excited. You will be hearing about this again. Just you wait.

Can't say that I'm too interested to try that, I hate beer with a passion lol.

But you enjoy just the same!

The Shutterfly books are pretty awesome! They are expensive, but if you are organized with your digital pictures they are easy and quick to put together. I feel like every time I scrapbook "for real" I always waste so much money on supplies I never use!

Also, beer can chicken is awesome!!

We have beer can chicken at least half a dozen times a year. It's an old family favorite. Taryn, as soon as I saw Dr Horrible the first time, I went to Amazon and bought it, watched it twice more with two different people while I waited for it to arrive and now it's here and all mine. Thank you so very much for introducing me to such insanity!

In my opinion, this is what beer was made for!

So wait, you put the can in the chicken and then put it on the grill? I've never heard of this, but it sounds fascinating and delicious. So cool.

My hubby and I don't like beer either but we love beer can chicken. It just makes the chicken very moist. You don't need a grill. We have a propane grill and using it for 2 hours straight at 350 degrees would suck the life out of the tank. Sooo... we cook it in the oven. Turns out fantastic, the meat falls right off. Just make sure to put the stand w/chicken in a pan so it doesn't drip all over your oven. I also tried keeping the juices that fell in the pan and the can - makes a fantastic homemade gravy!

My mother just got one of these! I would love to see how it works! I should get one, but alas, I can't grill within, like, 100 ft of a city building. :(
