It doesn’t get much hotter than the EGG cookin’ in July! Make sure to keep yourself hydrated with a bit of whatever you’re using for the Beer Can Chicken. Ice Cream Sandwiches are also a great way to stay cool. Looking for some great ideas for a summer cook out? Try out a Pimento Cheeseburger or Dr. BBQ’s Spare Rib Surprise. Just don’t be surprised if your neighbors stop by for a quick bite when they smell what you’re cooking!

When doing a bird with a beer can insert do you put the bird/can on a pan and put the pan directly on the grill... i'm thinking tweetie will get scorched this way???

    <p />PuppyBreath, I place a can of full beer right inside that bird and place on the grill at 300 direct. Never a problem.

    Car Wash Mike,
    just curious what is that glass looking thing at about 5:00 in your picture? I thought first it was a shiny spatula and then thought different.

  • Car Wash Mike,
    Did that can come poppin right out of the one on the left?

  • RRP, and puppy breath, That was my temp. guage in the bird. On the left side was probably one of my many beers to check on the birds. Takes very many to do a beer butt chicken correctly. I'm not real fancy on T-Day. Will cook a turkey breast the same way for the feast along with my own honey baked ham.[p]CWM
