clean out the chicken and wash it. Wash the beer can, pop it open and drink about half, then shove the chicken onto the beer can making sure that the can is completely covered. The put it on the grill making sure that the burners directly under it are off... you are basically cooking it with indirect heat (other burners should be on medium heat). Close the grill and let it sit for about 75-90 minutes depending on your grill.
Remove from grill and let it sit for 10-15 minutes, then eat and enjoy along with the other 5 beers
I've done this before, turns out moist and juicy...and it makes great pictures because the chicken sits up......question, what rub do you use? or do you make your own? also I like to wrap the beer can with foil, never trust the printed cans...
