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!

    I don't. I cook direct. Plenty moist and tasty.

    Car Wash Mike,
    Thanks a bunch. I have always spatched our chickens but after reading the posts about this, decided to give it a try. The bad news is that I didn't have any canned beer so had to use a Coke can, open a bottle of beer, and pour half into the Coke can. I put some fresh garlic, green onions, and rosemary into the can also. Have the bird rubbed with olive oil, lemon pepper and salt and am gonna throw some branches of rosemary into the fire. I had decided after looking at the pic that I was not going to use the drip pan, so I am happy to know that's what you do. Oh.......had to drink the other half of the beer....drat.
