Sunday Football Beer Can Chickens (Q VIEW)

post #1 of 14
Thread Starter 

So, Sunday Football is like a holiday in my family.  My Brother In Law and I decided to host it down the shore this week, and we did twin Beer Can Chickens.  We took a lot of advice from the forum, and they turned out great!


I brined the chickens overnight with water, onion powder, garlic powder, brown sugar, salt, and a lil Jeff's rub.


Then I pat them dry, put them on the cans and rubbed EVOO on them and spread some Jeff's all over. 


I injected them with a mix of melted butter, apple juice, and Jeff's Rub, & corked them with a small onion.

I have MES40, but since we were down the shore, we used my brother in laws charcoal smoker.  (Hickory Chunks)


Tried to keep the temp around 260-300.  Took just under 3 hours to get the birds to 160-165 internally. 


1 hour before they were done, I basted one of the birds with a homemade BBQ sauce.  (about 3x in that last hour.)

They were super juicy!  BBQ bird was a lil bit better.

Hope you enjoy!

We also made some ATBs, my brother in law likes to make half really hot, and half mild... It's pot luck for anyone who wants to eat never know which one you'll get!!


Homemade Mac & Cheese too!  I think we perfected it, so we will post it next time we make it!
