Beer can chicken


Recommended Posts

Used new set up from cast iron grates that lets you put chicken lower down under grate so fits easier. Cherry smoked. Just some oregano pepper a little salt. No brine. Delicious. Using all the left overs and carcass to make stock tomorrow for soup.

All the carcass and wings and bones go in the Indra pot to make a stock. Smells so good then all the recovered meat from the legs are made into a soup with the left over gravy from the chicken juices yesterday the mashed swede and carrot. Wonderfully good.

Those gates look very cool 😎 and nice looking birds!

Have to say, I've done a few "beer can" chickens and can't say I notice any real difference/improvement. Do you find you do?

More juicy bit and  biteability and Smokey. If I do it in a bag in oven then that is also juicy but less biteability as it falls apart but more. Fine lines but different. Also depends on what beer and smoke used. Choices.   I did use a fresh chicken too not frozen. From nice butchers
