Decided to make a beer chicken this weekend, here are some pics...

Beer was a mix of Harp and Brooklyn Hopfen-Weisse. The outside was also basted with a basil balsamic glaze.


GF getting everything situated...


Ready to go in!


Ready to carve!! Yummmmm

That chicken looked so good I had to repost it on Twitter. The chicken isn't the only "hot" thing in those pics either. Lucky you.

I love the cow statue in the background that says "I'm a cow!"


I don't really know why...

That's cool, Joe.

I've only done it in the grill, dry rubbed with poultry seasoning, some wood chips, and plain BMC; and no veggies. I have several SS wide-based racks that hold the beer and chicken.

Is that a commercially available oven version?

You would probably laugh at the clock that moos on the hour. It's funny.

It's a charmaglow kit from home depot actually pretty sweet deal, and it works on the grill as well. Because I have a smaller grill I opted to do it inside.

Looks great! I love to do these as well- I use 1/2 bottle of any kind of beer, worchester sauce, garlic and some seasonings in it as well. I would recommend adding a small onion stuck in the top to prevent any of the moisture from escaping, and if you like onions, the resulting one is very tasty after it comes off the grill!

Never done the beer chicken thing. Does the beer itself contribute any noticeable flavor?

I've read before that an experiment done with beer in one and water in another didn't produce a noticeable flavour difference in the chicken, dunno how true it is as I've not done it before.

I believe I could smell the beer, regardless I enjoyed it just the same
