Beer Can Chicken

    I must admit, I much prefer wine... but I truly love making Beer Can Chicken ♡

    Don't forget to empty half of the beer out of the can before grilling (it will bubble out if you don't...that's my excuse and I'm sticking to it 🤣)

    1 whole chicken (3-4 pounds is best)
    Extra virgin olive oil
    1 half-full can of beer, room temperature
    1 tablespoon sea salt (truth be known, it's actually double that 🤣. I don't measure much 😁)
    Thyme leaves, if you wish...and to your liking
    Black pepper (about 2 teaspoons)
    Garlic powder (about 2 teaspoons)

    Rub the chicken down with the olive oil...but make sure to use some paper towels to make sure your chicken is dry (otherwise, it won't crisp up)
    Sprinkle the salt, pepper, thyme, garlic powder all over the chicken.

    Lower your chicken over the half full beer can

    Note: I sometimes throw a sprig of rosemary in the beer can, to impart flavor.

    Set your grill to about 350 degrees.

    Check on your chicken every 15-20 minutes or so ..until a meat thermometer inserted into the thickest part of the thigh reads at least 160°F.

    It usually takes about an hour or longer, so be patient.

    Let Mr. Chicken rest for about 10 minutes before eating ♡

    As a German Monk once said:
    Beer makes you sleep easy.
    Easy sleep makes you not sin.
    Not sinning gets you into heaven. Amen

    Benedic, Domine, nos et haec tua dona quae de tua largitate sumus sumpturi. 
    Per Christum Dominum nostrum. Amen.

    As always, our entire family is here to give you hope & encouragement!  We truly love you and pray for you daily!  Never hesitate to send me a prayer request!
