One of the recent BCC's I did this past fall. I was trying to transfer to a foil wrap and it fell, but you get the idea! My favorite way to do them is a basic brown sugar rub with fresh rosemary and lemons. I love to throw old apples in the coals while grilling, along with the rosemary stems. Don't think it adds much taste, but it shore smells good!

VERY nice, Laura! I can't imagine it not adding flavor, but I would have to agree on the smell too!

Beer can chicken. Usually a can filled 2/3's full with your fav. beverage. Can use coke, beer, or even water. Just adds moisture while cooking, so the flavor doesn't really matter. I usually also stuff my cans with some rosemary and thyme stalks. That WILL add some flavor. I use a beer can holder that the can sits in and then you place the butt of the chix on the can. Here is another pic..I usally stuff the top of the chix with a half lemon or half onion to help hold in the juices and steam.

You know, now that I think about that first pic, I think that was actually a turkey breast that I did! OOPS!

Poor chcken. Gave it's all for a good cause. ;)

Looks delicious, Laura! I especially like the lemon slices spilling out the side.

We got a live one here! (Kidding, kidding.) I see Laura already answered your question. Instead, I'll add you can also cook other birds the same way. Just need a Foster can for turkey or a small juice can for Cornish game hen.

Great way to use old apples that you don't really want to eat, or save apple cores, old pears, etc...

Well now I feel like a dork! Yea, I've done many. I also keep the little starbucks coffee cans to I can do beer can cornish game hens. Only I use Dr Pepper, oil and garlic.


Thanks for setting me straight.

No problem Josh! Sorry if I put in too many details! If I had used a good first pic to begin with, you probably would have figured out the abbreviation!
My family doesn't even like chix cooked any other way now!

Have you ever tried the BCC with an empty can? That is the way I've been doing them lately and can't really notice any difference... just a thought for ya...

Really? Is it a completely open can then that the juices from the bird accumulates and acts as the liquid?

Don't fault Josh, up in our neck of the woods that is BEER BUTT CHICKEN.

Some liquid does collect in the can, but it's more just propping the chicken up... I was never really able to detect any flavor from the liquid in the can, so I just quit leaving liquid in there... I was surprised at the results.

Do you those remember those old "spaneck" wire roasters? http://spanek.com/CHICKEN.JPG

They do much the same thing and also work great...

Only the pop top is open so that it can steam the bird from th inside. If you want the drippings for gravy you can set the whole affair in a pan.

Great way to do chix, but I'm stlii a split bird or spatch**** man myself.

Then there's my signature boneless whole stuffed birds.:drooling::drooling::eating::eating:

I got the double model from Cabela's

Always do 2 at a time, shred the second one, and freeze in 1 pound cryosuck packs and put in various dishes (like sides of Zatarains Creole Rice or anything that needs tasty chicken added)

Never tried putting apples and such in my fire.

Bet it would smell good.
