Anyone ever try Beer-Can Chicken in an Egg?

Recently, there was a recepie in a national cooking magazine for cooking a chicken in a grill, but with an odd technique. Bascially, it consists of brining a bird, adding a few spices, then placing the chicken upright over an open, full can of beer in the grill. Apparently, they loved it. Has anyone tried this in an egg?
Send an email to me and I'll send the text of the recipe if anyone is interested.
