“Never thought beer can chicken would taste so good! First time I've tried it. My whole family was really impressed. We couldn't stop eating it untill it was completly gone! lol. I didn't have any actual beer cans so I just emptied out a soup tin and used that instead.”

Directions

  1. Mix rub ingredients in a small bowl. lightly rub the chicken all over with the oil. Season the chicken inside and out with the rub.
  2. Open your beer can and drink about half of it. Put the rosemary, thyme, garlic, and lemon juice into the beer. Make a few more holes in the top of the beer can with a can opener. Shove the chicken cavity over the beer can. You can actually get special beer can chicken holders for this that make it a bit easier.
  3. Grill over indirect medium heat(350-450 degrees F) until juices run clear and internal temperature reaches 180 degrees F in the breast, about 1 1/4 -1 1/2 hours. Let the chicken rest for about 10 minutes before removing from beer can and cutting up. Enjoy!
