Beer Can Chicken Meal for Sarah
After a long and hot summer, our daughter Sarah delivered her third child, our third grandchild, just a couple of weeks ago. While recovering in the hospital, I asked what would taste good to her when she came home. She said she had a craving for all things chicken: roasted, grilled, nuggets, wings! (she does live in Buffalo after all) So a technique that she had never tasted, and I have made a couple of times, was the perfect solution. I decided to make beer can chicken.
Beer can chicken was actually introduced to us a few years ago while visiting Barbara's sister in Denver. Her husband made it for us, and it was delicious. The technique is very simple and adds incredible moistness to a roasted chicken.
~4 lb whole chicken - giblets removed and discarded
Any dry rub that you have in your spice rack. I used a turkey seasoning dry rub mixture.
