Got a couple responses to my request for suggestions on beer-can chicken.
This from reader Susan:
“They sell a ceramic container that has the top part shaped like a can. You poor the beer into the ceramic dish, then set the chicken on top of that. You get to use whatever type of beer (or other beverage) you would like. I bought mine at Atwoods. Happy grillin’.”
And this from reader Daniel:
“Very good if not the best chicken I’ve ever eaten. I used Guinness. Due to the caramelization factor and the roasted barley flair of the beer, it worked well. I have been told any type of beverage would work including Cherry Coke. I must warn you though make sure the beer is at least 3/4 of the way full rather that 1/2 full. The chicken will “soak” it up rather quickly. Also use indirect heat, cook opposite side of the lit burner. Makes me wanna cook one now, mmm!”
Thanks for the comments, guys. I’m definitely pumped for beer-can chicken this football season!
