Beer Can Chicken

Serves: 4


1 3-4 pound whole roasting chicken

6 tablespoons Stubb’s Bar-B-Q Spice Rub

1 can of beer

1 beer-can-chicken holder (optional)

Set the grill for indirect heat at 350°F.

Open the beer and pour about 1/3 into a glass. Put half of the rub into the beer can.

Rinse the chicken thoroughly and pat dry. With the remaining spice rub, season the inside and outside of the chicken, making sure to get between the skin and the breast meat for extra flavor.

Place the beer can into the beer-can-chicken holder and then slide the chicken cavity over the beer can so the chicken appears to be sitting on its tail. To cook without a chicken holder, slide the chicken directly over the beer can, but take caution when balancing it all on the grill or in the oven, as it will be more prone to tip over.

Cook the chicken at 350°F for 1 1/2 to 2 hours or until it reaches an internal temperature of 180°F. You can also prepare this in an oven at the same temperature. Let the chicken rest for 5 minutes before removing from the holder and carving.
