It seems like opinions on the web are split between "it's a waste of beer" to "it makes the chicken moist"
But, I've never read an opinion gleaned from a side by side comparison of two chickens smoked at the same time with and without the beer. Then again, why beer? Why not apple / guava / pear juice or just water in a can?
On the other side of the coin, opinions are generally favorable regarding using a rack without the beer.
Anyone using them? Opinions?
