Beer-Can Chicken BBQ
 
I have just finished doing this for the first time - and a great success it was.

This method is big in USA, but new to me. There are many recipes, but the essential is to take a can of beer and half empty it (do what you like with the spare!). Make some holes in the upper (empty) part of the can to allow steam out.

Take a chicken and place the bird on top of the can forcing the can into the cavity (this is easier if the bird is dead first! otherwise it might struggle) so the bird is upright on the can and itīs legs support it. Put on a pan (so the heat is not direct on the bird and it saves fat on your coals) and put that on a low BBQ with the dome closed. The beer will steam the bird from the inside. Baste every half-hour. Two hours will do it, possibly less, and you will have a moist succulent bird with crispy skin.

There are many options (google it) for flavouring, but the basic method is the same.

Does not work on open BBQ.

Are you sure the can won't explode when the liquid boils? Maisie

No, it will just produce steam.

But remember when you take the bird off the BBQ, you still have boiling beer left in the can, so be careful.

He has the same BBQ as mine! The only thing I would do is put the bird onto a baking tray to collect some of the fat and keep the BBQ cleaner.
