    Source of Recipe


    List of Ingredients

    • 1 whole chicken
    • 1 (16 oz) can beer
    • olive oil
    • 4 cloves garlic, crushed
    • salt and black pepper
    • seasoning for chicken:
    • 4 cloves garlic, crushed

    • pinch of cayenne
    • salt and pepper


    1. Start with a hot grill. Drink about 1/4 of the beer. Set it aside.
    2. Trim off some of the chicken fat, get rid of the giblets.
    3. Rub liberally with your favorite meat rub or my seasoning for chicken.
    4. Open the top of the 3/4 full can of beer. Drop in crushed garlic.
    5. Oil up the can and lower the chicken over top of it.
    6. The beer goes into the chicken's body cavity and allows the bird to stand upright.
    7. Cover grill and cook until the chicken wings are loose and the skin turns clear.
