Beer Can Chicken aka Beer Butt Chicken



Beer Can Chicken:
4 lb Whole Chicken (this one was about 4 1/2 lbs)
12 oz can of beer
Canola Oil (a light coating to help make the seasonings stick to the skin)
2 tablespoons each - salt/pepper
Herbs and seasonings of your choice


Be sure to empty out 1/2 the contents of beer first. Shove the can up the butt of the chicken. The can will help stabilize the chicken as it cooks upright. More importantly, the beer will steam the chicken from the inside.


Be sure to remove the gizzards and other stuff in the cavities.


Cook at 325, about 25 minutes per pound. BE SURE TO USE A MEAT THERMOMETER!!


Finished product. I also made some mushroom stuffing to go with the chicken.

I've found that a sixteen ounce beer can works even better. It's fun to put more than one bird on the grill, but the fat dripping in the fire does flare up. They look like headless birds dancing in Hell. Tasty, though.

One crucial instruction is missing IMHO. Due to the likelihood of flare ups, and for more even cooking throughout, I recommend using indirect heat. How does one do this? If using an ordinary gas grill light only one side, cook the chicken on the other side of the grill keep the lid down until nearly done (to crisp the skin). If using a charcoal grill bank the coals to one side.

I neglected to write that I did this on a roasting rack in an oven, and not the grill. I think you get a more even heat in the oven with less chance of a flare up.

Not sure where to post this but I wanted to ask if anyone has heard of National Clicks?

Can someone help me find it?

Overheard some co-workers talking about it all week but didn't have time to ask so I thought I would post it here to see if someone could help me out.

Seems to be getting alot of buzz right now.

Thanks

A friend told me: He cried for a girl ~

"You must love love her?"

"is a love that does not know how to do! "

"Really?"

"the boy cried in front of you shows that he had suffocated, if you to grasp his hand, he can accompany you through life! If

you give him, he would be very difficult to return to their previous "

for the first time, the girl decided to leave him. He said to her, as long as you happy. Girls saw him fighting back tears: "I know" and turned

, he cried.

the second time,nfl jerseys wholesaler, the girl told him that he had deceived him. He told the girl will forgive her because he loved the girl. He held girl

crying, she knew that he must be very disappointed.

third time, Valentine's Day. He held me tight girl said to her, do not leave him. He would not let girls see his face, but she knew he

cry.

the end, he chose to leave. She knew he had his own despair. Maybe too much their own fault, everything can not pull

back. Girls, also chose to leave. Leave this city, to escape everything here. Phone, he was crying begging her to stay, but

she has resolutely decided to leave. He cried, the last time for her to cry ...

Today, two people have changed. He changed,online shoes store, and became familiar with in the past, to him, maybe just silly. She also changed, becoming Ma

wood, the past, for her,Ed Hardy Women's Shoes, maybe just regret.

past her headstrong,north face jackets, he has been hurt countless times. Now, he has no serious feelings as in the past. She knew that everything

has changed. If, all over again, she will not leave. Not worth a lifetime love of people to leave.

boys do not cry easily, only to face a favorite person, will become fragile.

boy,polo shirts, do not cry easily, only too fond of you, will put down self-esteem.

girls, if you have a boy cried for you, please grab his hand, he can accompany you through life.

girls, if you have a boy cried for you, please do not abandon him, and perhaps a choice will destroy a person
