Hey guys,

I know how everyone likes Freddy's Saturday coffee. :idea: So, I thought to myself how about Sunday beer can chicken. Just thought I'd send a couple of pics. :D Started at 9 am should be ready at about 11:30. 2 and 1/2 hours on indirect heat! Yum Yum!! :drool: I would have cooked it for supper, but I've got to go to work at 4 pm. :(

The Best way to cook a chicken in the Summer!
Make sure the chicken does not touch the top of the grill...
the steam must be able to exit the top of the chicken!

You said it Cape! It sure is the best way. The grill is big enough. When I close the lid there is a few inches of clearance over the top of the chicken. My recipe calls for putting a small potato in the hole on top. Maybe next time I'll try it without. It was ready at 11:15. WOW! Talk about juicy! :D

It sounds like a good idea. Never tried it, but want to give it a go. Anyone have a 'recipe' or plan?

Top must be poped on beverage!
WEST BARNSTABLE - Firefighters are able to prevent major damage after a fire breaks out in the kitchen of a West Barnstable home. Crews responded to Lothrop Lane shortly before 6 PM. Fire was contained to the kitchen but there was some smoke damage in other rooms. Fire officials say a 17-year old was using a soup can to mold tortilla shells and dipping them in hot oil. Pressure apparently built up in the can causing the soup to explode. The teen suffered burns to the face but is expected to be okay. The Times reports the family had cooked this was many times in the past. Fire investigators warn that liquid in a sealed container will explode with boiled.

Chris, I don't get to fancy with it. I have the wife pick up a preseasoned chicken at the grocery store. I have a rack that the beer can sits in. I cut off the top of the beer can, drink half :D , put it in the rack, set the chicken over it, cover the hole on top with a small potato. preheat the grill to 325*, place it all on a drip pan and cook it for about 16 minutes a pound on indirect heat. That's it!

You can also get pretty creative with it. There are many recipes on the internet for beer can chicken.

Yep, just found a few recipes on the internet. I would have used the whole can and just popped-the-top. The cook gets a second can.
Gonna have to try it. THANKS!

Or the 27th 11th can .... :drunk: :crazy: :stretcher: toothy

Wifey just cooked this up a couple days ago since the power was out. Tossed the getup on the grill. She has this metal rack with the 2 holes that fit the beer can perfectly. Probably would have been better if I shotgunned the Budweiser ... then filled the can with Sam Adams. 8-)

As I envision a beer can that went through a shotgun experience, it wouldn't hold any liquid unless it was on it's side. :P

I put a onion where the neck was. Also the half emptied beer can "The Cook Takes One For The Team", has a celery stalk added as well as some Italian dressing.
