I was invited over to one of my friend's house for dinner and they served this. It is so juicy and moist and super easy to make! Great for tailgating. You can purchase your chicken stand at walmart or online. Just be careful you might be fighting over the crisp skin!

How to Make Beer in the Butt Chicken

Step-by-Step

  1. put your chicken stand on the pie tin. grab your can of beer or dark soda and pour half of it out. Place the can in the can holder on the stand.
  2. Make sure that there isn't any chicken parts stuffed inside the chicken. If so just discard it. Rinse the chicken off inside and out.
  3. Slide the chicken on the stand, butt down over the can.
  4. pour the rub in your hand and rub it onto the chicken all over. Don't forget to rub it under the wings and the inside of the legs.
  5. place the pie plate and chicken on the grill. Pour about 1/2 a cup of water into the pie tin. This helps keep the skin from burning. Cook on med-low for about 1 1/2 hours. Checking periodically. The water in the pie tin will start to evaporate so make sure you add that other 1/2 of cup half way through cooking. About and hour into cooking I get my meat thermometer and stick it one of the breast(not touching the bone). When the temp reaches 165 degrees then your done!
