  • 1 roasting chicken, 3-4 lbs
  • 1 can beer
  • RUB:
  • 1 teaspoon paprika
  • 1 tablespoon brown sugar
  • 1 tablespoon white sugar
  • 1 teaspoon celery salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon Montreal steak seasoning
  • 1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • 1 teaspoon dry mustard
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 teaspoon onion powder
10 mins
1.5 hrs
1.5 hrs
Combine the rub ingredients.

Reserve 1 tablespoon rub for the beer can; rub the remainder of the seasoning over bird, and in body cavity. This can be done up to one day ahead.

Wash and dry beer can. Pour off about half the beer and set aside to enjoy later. Add reserved rub to can, and slowly rotate to mix.

Set the bird on the beer can and position the legs so they support the bird. Position bird on grill being careful not to tip the bird over and spill the beer. Cook over indirect heat at medium high setting for approximately 1 1/4 hours or until a temperature of 185 is reached in the thickest part of the breast and thigh.

When the bird is done, remove from grill and allow to rest for 10 minutes before cutting into serving pieces.

"Great way to kick off the grilling season! I was scared to use all the rub it made, but trusted the recipe and the flavor was sensational! Chicken was moist and tender and I followed the recipe exactly."
