Beercan Chicken

cooking beercan chicken for the first time (have done spatchcock a few times, want to change it up).  what is the cook temp and estimated time for most beercan cooks? 

any other pointers/advice to make it come out just right?  just going to put oil on, beercan in, and dry rub. 


  • 300deg direct or indrect for less flare up from dripings. let the bird sit in fridge uncoverd for a few hr. olive oil & your favorite rub. drink half the beer an stuff beer can with fresh herbs an garlic. Also cut a potato or sausage in-half an shove in the top of chicken. Everyone fights over the sausage.

    I get the 2 pack whole chickens from SAMs club. They are 4-6lbers. Takes 1 1-1/2 hour to cook. Been using apple or cherry wood. Just a few small chunks. I cook both for dinner an the other for chicken salad for lunches the next few days.

    I have cooked whole chickens both ways & with same results. But the beer can just looks cooler..!
