Whether you make a whole beer-can roasted chicken or a sizzling chicken fajita, these grilled chicken recipes are flavor-packed—guaranteed.
While American ingenuity has produced a variety of beer-can roasters that hold the can in place and stabilize the tipsy chicken, a special roaster isn’t needed for this recipe. Instead, use the beer can as the third leg of a tripod; spread the drumsticks out to support the chicken. The flavors of the hickory wood chips and spice rub permeate the chicken from the outside. The beer infuses the chicken with flavor from the inside. The results will convince you that this unique cooking method is worth the effort.
