Do you like to grill in the summer? We sure do (although we do grill year-round). Well, here is a super easy fun way to cook a chicken, you may have heard it before and tried it, or haven’t tried it yet but you should soon! It’s called Beer Can Chicken. It’s as easy as buying a chicken, cleaning, drying, oiling seasoning and setting it on a half can of beer and throwing it on the grill till it is cooked through around 160-170ish I believe. That’s the only hard part…when is it done? It looks nice and toasted brown on the outside but is it cooked all the way through to the bone? That’s when a thermometer is usually good to have handy. We seasoned ours with garlic salt, Italian seasoning and lawry’s, but try your fav seasonings, I’m sure there are many varieties that will turn out as tasty as ours!
And a side note, I did buy a beer can chicken tray a few years back, so we can throw veggies on to the grill tray underneath during the last part of the chicken cooking. It’s also nice b/c the chicken seems a bit sturdier than if you just put it on the can. I think the investment was worth it!
