  • In order for a nice size chicken to fit on a can of beer, you really need a 16 oz. can of beer. No need to cut off top, just open it! Bon Appetite!

  • I tried this.. lots of work for a dish that tastes like an average chicken dish.

  • I placed the chicken in a cake pan with 2 in. sides and I'm glad I did. The chicken fell over towards the end and all the beer spilled out. No biggie since I had the pan under it.

  • I have been doing this for about 4 years and have always had great results. My question is do you know if there is a health hazard with the heating of the paint or metal of the can. Try this technique with a Fosters BIG beer can and a turkey, it is great.

  • Best Chicken ever, cooked in 100 min. on a gas grill, spray w/ olive oil, apple cider, left over beer and balsamic vinegar every 30 min., and drink a beer each time you spray!

  • this recipe is also really great if you stuff onions, garlic cloves and bell peppers in between the meat and skin of the whole bird legs and all makes the best tasting bird you'll ever have. i also make up a batch of all my favorite seasonings and rub it all over the outside of the bird.

  • I fixed these chickens twice and they are moist and delicious. I will definitely fix any chicken on the grill like this. Thanks for sharing this wonderful recipe!

  • AWESOME chicken that's moist and so tender it'll fall off the bone! I've made it with 2 Tbls. paprika and 2 Tbls. garlic salt . . . 1/2 the seasoned butter mixture gets poured into a 1/2 empty can of beer with the other 1/2 of beer being added to the remaining seasoned butter, for basting. I baste OFTEN and lay it on THICK for stronger, better flavor. Works great with Turkey breast, too!

  • Charcoal make best tasting
