Beer Can Chicken Recipe

Two of Dave’s favorite things are beer and chicken, so he loves when he gets to combine the two. He has made Beer Can Chicken (or Beer Butt Chicken as we tend to call it) on the barbecue in the past, but Cave Tools sent us a Beer Can Chicken Roasting Rack to make the process easier and maybe even yummier! In this post, if I say “we,” I totally just mean Dave. I can’t pretend I would attempt this recipe myself!

What You Need:
Chicken
BBQ Rub Spices (or your own version; see this recipe for an example of spices to use)
Can of Beer (Dave says you shouldn’t use a fancy beer – he used Coors Light!)
Oil

Pour your beer into the canister. This stainless steel canister can be used for beer, wine, cider, and any other liquid or herb combination you can think up!

Pour a bit of your BBQ rub on top of the beer.

Pour oil onto your chicken and then cover it with your BBQ rub.

Arrange your chicken so it is sitting on your canister.

Put the rack in the center of the grill. The grill temperature should be around 300 degrees. Leave the side burners on but turn off the middle where the chicken is and close the lid. Barbecue for approximately 1 hour and 15 minutes or until a thermometer at the thickest part of the thigh reads 180 degrees.

Drink the rest of your beer!

The coolest part of this roasting rack is that it comes with 4 spikes for grilling potatoes or corn on the sides! We added our corn in the middle of the cooking time.

Eat and enjoy!

Guess what else? The whole thing is dishwasher safe.

I have reviewed items from Cave Tools in the past and they always make grilling and barbecuing more convenient and simple!
