      There are many different variations of this chicken recipe; spices added, the kind of beer used, and even the cooking process itself varies from cook to cook. I’ve heard of a more time-consuming version where you marinade your chicken in beer for 8 hours first. Well, I’m not such a hero. The recipe I prefer is much more simple.

      You will need:

      /> 1 whole chicken 1/2 can beer (dark beer seems to work better) Salt, pepper Garlic or garlic salt Vegetable oil (preferably olive) Honey

      On to the cooking method. First, open your can of beer and drink a half (or pour out into another empty can if you are making two chickens). Put into the can some garlic powder or 2 cloves of crushed garlic, add a teaspoon of honey, and a little salt & pepper. Pierce the can on the side, above the beer level. Now your beer can is ready.

      Step two: prepare the chicken by washing it, pat drying, and rubbing into it some salt & pepper. Then with the help of a cooking brush cover it with some olive oil.

      Step three ...

      • Chicken on a Beer Can
      can be a little hard, especially when you are first trying this recipe. Place the chicken onto the beer can, inserting the can in the cavity. You need to have the chicken “sitting” on the can, with the legs serving as supports. Do your best to make sure the structure will not tip over. Now place this “chicken on the throne”
      on a preheated grill and cook for 1.5 hours. After that, remove the cooked chicken from the grill and let it sit for another 10 minutes.

      When properly done, this chicken turns out soft and moist, with a slight touch of beer in the taste. I also love the yummy, crispy crust. After your first try, you will probably adjust the recipe to your liking, adding / removing ingredients.
