Probably/maybe a dumb question - I've heard folks talk about beer can chicken. Sounds like an easy and good way to cook, so here is the Q: do you use a real beer can? What about the paint on the can - is it an issue when cooking? Since I always seem to have plenty of available cans, thought this might be a way to put them to good use.

Too many cans? You need to go to the chicken auction

May be a business opportunity for me. Beer can chicken cans for $4.95 a pop.

Yep, a real beer can that is about half full of beer. Serious, or are you jpoking?

Don't take a beer and pour half into empty can to make a double batch. You MUST drink half the beer to make sure it is of a quality worthy of your chicken!

Serious Q. Wondered if the heat would cause the paint to taint the meat, therefore calling for a non-painted can.

Cotton, I agree with your recommendation 100%!

I use a beer can. Cut the top off with a knige or can opener. Coat the chicken heavily with Tony Chachere's. I line up three on a gas grill. Make sure you cover the grilling surface with a layer of tin foil so the chickens get indirect heat. Create a lip on the foil so the chicken fat will not burn on the grill. If you don't use the tin foil you will have black chickens from the flare ups. It takes me about 1.5 hours to cook three. Cook until internal temp is 165 degrees. Let the chickens rest in a pan that catches all the juices. We use the drippings and the beer as a dipping sauce. This will be the best chicken you have ever had. Using Tony Chachere's is the key

Thanks for the tip Pontoon. I use Tony's on everything from meat to oatmeal, so got that one covered.

Forget the beer can, use a mason jar. Fill the mason jar about half way with a vinegar base marinade or sauce, place fresh herbs under the skin. Generously coat each chicken with olive oil and then with what ever dry seasoning (Tony's, Cavendars, Lawrys, etc) that you want. Cook with indirect heat @ 275 - 300 for about three hours. Pull skin and bones out and serve. It will be so moist you will think it is not done but it is. Before you ask, NO the mason jar will not break.

A Quart Mason jar? Gotta' be an XXL size chicken for it to fit, right?

In simple terms, chug half the beer and insert. Seriously, if you use a full beer, it won't work.

Do you get to fill the jar with beer and drink it before you put the other liquid mixture in?

You must have a LOT of practice putting a big thing into a small thing.

Tall Cotton, never considered beer, they are left over from the evening before. Contained a little sippin whiskey then. Thats how they come from the supplier in Tallapoosa County.

No such thing as a small one. They all fit to size the can, jar, whatever you use.

several properly positioned Beer Can Chickens (aka,Butt Chickens), sitting perched on a grill, looks like,,,, well,,,,
Strange. Really strange? Maybe just me.
Maybe something connected to military training? (Parade Rest!)   (Latrine Hours end in 5 Minutes!)
Cannot knock the results though. Consistent juicy, tender chicken, and easy.

 Never had a problem with cans....I usually use the 16oz Coors Light cans (after a couple of good swigs). I have can racks (from academy sports) that hold 2 cans/chickens. You can do 4 chickens at once on the XL. Coat the chicken inside and out with spices (Canadian steak seasoning works great) and cook for about 3 hours at 220. Pull off the Egg  when internal temp is still about  5-10 degrees under the poultry temp (I use about 160) and wrap in foil. Let stand at least 30 minutes before eating. After cooling, you can also refrigerate and it will be great for a later meal.

Its called DRUNK CHICKEN as if done properly you are drunk by the time the chicken is done and you think it is great.

Maybe you could put a carrot in one hand and get him to salute with the other. Imagine the expressions when you raised the lid.
