What you’ll need:

1 can lager

1 3 1/2 to 4 lb chicken

2 tablespoons spice rub

Grilling steps:

  1. Pour out or drink half the beer.
  2. Leave one burner of your gas grill turned off and turn the other side to high; slip in a grill pan over the unlit burner. If you’ve got a charcoal grill, bank the coals on one side of the grill and place the drip pan on the empty side. Add 1/2” of water to the pan.
  3. Season the chicken with the spice rub of your choice.
  4. With legs facing down, place the beer can inside the cavity of the chicken. Situate the can and chicken on the grill over indirect heat, above the drip pan.
  5. Cover the chicken and grill until thoroughly cooked. The thickest part of the thighs should register 165 degrees Fahrenheit when ready (approximately 45-60 minutes). Charcoal cooking times may be longer.
  6. Let the chicken cool for about ten minutes, carve, and serve!
