"Can" Chicken Recipe

Hello all!

 Well, this past weekend I got one of those little tri-pod things they make to sit your can and chicken on to make "Beer Can Chicken" on the grill, so I thought I would give it a try tonight.  It was FANTASTIC!  The chicken skin was so brown and crispy and yummy, and the chicken literally fell off the bones it was so juicy and delicous!  I had to share it with you all!

I will link to the Food network website, where I used the recipe of Steve Raichlen, who literally wrote the "Barbeque Bible".  The rub is really easy to make and makes quite a bit, so you can store it in your frig for the next time you make this... because I guarantee you will make it again!  I did not make the Cola sauce though, just the chicken.  And I didn't use the wood chips either.  I have a gas grill, so I got it fired up to about 350, then turned the center burner off and turned the front/back burners on low.  If you do it this way, center the chicken over the center burner, that way it is cooked indirectly and doesn't burn.  It took about 2hours until done.

 *Note:  Do NOT try to make this in your oven.  I tried once and it was a smokey MESS.  Also, if you don't want to use beer, it says you can use soda instead.  Or, I would say you could just fill an empty soda can half full of chicken broth and the seasonings.  I did use the beer, and it didn't make the chicken taste like beer at all.,,FOOD_9936_29741,00.html
