Beer Can Grilled Chicken
Chris: My sweetie is getting the rub together. We’ll get this bird ready. So we’re cooking chicken in a beer. And you know what? We only need about three quarters of this beer.
Gina: Don’t you drink the beer before I do my rub.
Chris: I promise.
Gina: So we’re going to start with two tablespoons of salt all across because I got a lot of spices going on, two tablespoons of smoked paprika just to give it that little of smoked flavor, two tablespoons of onion powder, okay, one tablespoon guess, cayenne pepper because we like it hot.
Everything in this house is cayenne and one tablespoon of cumin, two teaspoons of thyme and potpourri, two teaspoons of oregano. A tough job, this is a spiced pair of drink, and two teaspoons of black pepper.
Chris: We got a four pound bird here. We’re just going to take some vegetable oil and oil her up. You want to make sure that you get all throughout the bird even in the cavity because the oil will actually help the seasoning stick to this bird.
One of the reasons for using beer is because the beer when you sit this bird down, that beer becomes hot. It creates moistness because birds intend to dry when you're grilling it.
Gina: And lastly but not the least, two teaspoons of garlic powder. You all should write that one down because that’s going to be the spice pair of premier rub.
Alright, so now you just want to twirl it, twirl it and twirl it and twirl it. Okay, that chicken better be all because here comes the rub.
Chris: Come on baby with the seasoning.
Gina: I get to sprinkle.
Chris: Pretty spice there. Oh yes, and we’re just going to rub in here.
Chris: We want to really season it baby because this is a fairly large chicken.
Gina: Open her up. Stand up.
Chris: Open up and let’s get some in the cavity.
Chris: There we go.
Gina: Want a little bit.
Chris: That’s perfect. That’s perfect. I don’t know. We’ll going to come on the backside. I love chicken and this is another nice way of grilling some chicken.
Gina: Well it smells great. Is that good?
Chris: You got to have a spice fairy when you're cooking chicken like this. Alright, so I'm going to take the can of beer and sit it right there. We’re going to grab this baby. It’s time for her to perch up.
We’re just going to take here, move her around, let her slide right down. Hold tight there baby. She’s ready, when that charcoal heats up with this rub.
Gina: She’s going to fall out. Put a seatbelt on that girl.
Chris: Can’t wait to cook this baby.
Gina: That is just so cute.
Chris: Alright, I'm going to the grill. I already got three more out there.
Chris: And get this baby cooked. In one and a half hours, I'll be back and we’re going to do some good eating. The beer and the chicken, I mean this bird had some flavors from that beer coming up in the cavity of that chicken bursting through.
