    I have been making beer can chickens for years and was looking for variations, this is a great recipe and thank you for sharing. I have previously marinated the chicken overnight in a freezer bag with a 40/60 mix of beer and buttermilk with my spices added to the marinade. Then I roasted it on the beer can WOW This was probably the best chicken I have had.

    Cans insides are lined with a bpa film, outsides are either labelled with plastic, shrink sleeved, or ink and varnish coating. Heated and eaten it must be a great way to foster cancer.

    Question about the (Weber charcoal) grill. Should the vents on top and bottom be open?
    All the way, half way?

    It’s my favorite way to cook a whole chicken! I have “BBQ” heat proof gloves that I use to slide the can out and then place the cooked chicken in a bowl so all the juices are captured. After it has cooled for a little while, I break it down or pull it like pork bbq. My wife and I claim the wings as our appetizer .. :D Also, tinker with different beer flavors, it really does make a little difference in the flavor…right now my favorite is Shotgun Betty but that’s just me.

    I brine the chicken with an apple cider recipe before grilling. More flavor and moist.
