I love trying new recipes (and photographing them, of course!)… and THIS one did not disappoint! It’s pretty, it’s fun, and really makes me giggle!
- one whole chicken
- one can of beer (or pop… I’ve used Diet Pepsi and gingerale and it still works!)
- one cup melted butter or margarine
- one Tablespoon garlic salt
- one teaspoon pepper
- one teaspoon paprika
Heat one side of your grill to medium (leave the other side off). Open the can and take a few swigs… until there’s about half still in the can. Place the chicken on the can (like it’s standing up) and set it on a foil tray or pan. Stir the seasonings into the butter and brush it over the chicken. Place the chicken upright on the “off” side of the grill and put the lid down. Cook over indirect heat for 1.5-2hrs, turning and brushing with the butter mixture every 15min or so.
*Be careful when removing the can from the chicken– it’s HOT! I held the chicken with a fork stuck into each side and called in reinforcements to grab the can with tongs.
