|Chicken rub, BBQ sauce, beer can holders and beer|
2 whole chickens, roasters
2 small onions, golf ball size, peeled
2 tbsp. vegetable oil
2 tbsp. chicken rub, your choice
2-12 oz. cans beer, pop-top, plus 1 extra hole
Serves: 4 (1/2 chicken each person)
NOTE: You’re going to have to dispose of 1/2 of the beer in each can so that they are half full. It's a dirty job but somebody has to drink it. You can also use a soda can. Root beer or Dr. Pepper works. Pop the top and add a second hole with a good old fashioned beer can opener. You remember those?
|Prep them chickens|
|Set up grill for indirect cooking|
Remove the giblet packets from the chickens. Rinse out the chickens and pat dry with a paper towel on the outside. Sprinkle 1 teaspoon of the chicken rub into the cavity of each chicken.
|Mount that chicken|
|Add the onions to the neck cavity and press in|
|OMG! Can you smell that?|
|The BBQ sauce takes this chicken over the top|
So there you have it, beer can up the butt chicken, or Chicken on the throne. If you have ever made this before please leave a comment on rubs that you use, or barbecue sauces you slather on yours. What do you do with the beer and chicken juices left in the can?
Finally if you have any recipes for retro comfort foods, or ideas for future posts pass them along.
