I seen this done on the food network.

Tip: Make sure the chicken is dead before you insert the can. :lol:

Great shots. And a tasty way to serve up the fowl. I usually only use a half a can of beer, but the big thing to remember is when the cooking is done there is still hot liquids in the can. Often the bird sticks to the can a bit so be careful with removal.

You can buy the little stand at Canadian Tire or Walmart. I've seen them at Sears too where you buy barbeques. Just drink about 1/3 of the beer and put the beer on the stand then wrap the three prongs around it and shove the chicken on top. I used a spice rub on the chicken but you can use barbeque sauce too. Cook it on medium low until done. The meat pretty much falls off the bones. You can use juice too, but hey.....I'm Canadian...... The paint stays on the can btw. And it smells sooooooooo good cooking.
The nicest part is, none of the grease hits the barbeque with the exception of a few small splatters, so there's no flare ups.

Beer can chicken! Yum! Yum! :D
Here in the south US, if you can't cook it with beer, it's not worth eating! ;)
Seriously though, beer makes a chicken, turkey, steak, an even homemade biscuits taste better.
Now that I've read this post, it's time to fire up the Traeger and cook something with beer!!!:lol:

Is it necessary to close the lid of the grill? I don't know if my grill is big enough inside to have a chicken verticle, plus stand/beer can and still get the cover shut. If the cover is left open, I'm guessing the cook time would be quite long.

Nevermind above post, I read the cooking instructions link:
A chicken cooked in a grill with a lid takes about an hour and a half to 2 hours to cook. On an open grill, it will run 3 hours or more to fully cook the chicken. To check for doneness, insert a meat thermometer. The reading will be 180 degrees F (80 degrees C) when done. Some chickens are sold with a little pop out doneness meter, but they cost more than birds without such indicators.

I have a piece of equipment for my BBQ that does this. So VERY good it is. The beer cans are actually 1/2 full with the beer and you can add whatever you want to it(spices,BBQ sauce).. The Chickens takes 1 and a half hours to cook on the BBQ with the lid closed on low heat only.. It is really and incredible little invention.

I can second this. I am also from western KY (Henderson to be exact). I really like beer bread.
