1st attempt at this one... not sure why it has taken me so long.

Organic Chickens from Costco.

Rubbed inside and outside of skin.

Blue Moon

Smoked with a little apple wood.

Indirect at 375 for about an hour and fifteen minutes.

Very tasty.  WIll cook a little longer next time.  Chicken was cooked at 165, but I like mine a little more done

  • Now this one I have success with.  I could to almost 180 and it is so good with the apple chips.  I know most people say 160 but we do one all the time and it is moist.  Kosher salt and water for hours before the rub. For Christmas I had prime rib in the oven and whole beer chixs on the egg.  They all came out at the same time.  I did pat myself on the back!

    I don't think either the beer of the position of the bird makes all that much difference in the end product, but I lover the way a beer can chicken looks on the grill!
