Beer can chicken
« on: January 28, 2013, 04:09:21 PM »
I was outside doing a brisket, i fired up ol'Red to do a beer can chicken and used the snake method to do the cook, in the drip pan i put water(FYI do NOT drop lit charcoal in the water ::))   The chicken got a rub of EVOO and garlic and herb salt mix.  My setup  was two "C"s and i lit opposite ends and put apple wood chunks all along the chain.  When i was done the right side was almost gone and the left still had some left, the wind came from the left side so i think that is why the right side was almost gone. All in all it came out very tender and moist with a good smoke flavor(very light and just right)
So onto the the pictures, the weather was looking to play apart so i put up my EZ-up (of course it didn't rain, it would of if i hadn't)



Wanted: 18" Platinum any color will work
This is my Kettle there are many like it but this one is mine......

That came out really sharp !!!

So the charcoal chain worked out OK then?


Glad it was: (very light and just right)

Poultry can get over-smoked pretty dang easy.....

The chain worked good, i found that the wind made one side burn faster, but all in all it's great.  Thanks Duke!

Looks like it's head was pushed against the lid. I use my roti ring so I can get acouple birds on there and plenty of head room.
