Beer Butt Yard Bird for Canada Day

post #1 of 14
Thread Starter 
Used my smokers Saturday, Sunday, and Monday ... only got pix from Monday icon_redface.gif (must've been the pop)

Did a whole wack of ABTs on Saturday ... some of them sweet! (for potluck at fish fry)

Sunday, 2 racks of BBs with pig candy ( burned the pig candy) icon_redface.gif Ribs were great though!

Monday, used R2D2 on a beer butt chicken ... used toothpicks to close neck hole and to hold wings in place. Was as tender and juicy as it gets ... Mmmmm!

Seasoned salt & Emiril's inside and out.
Just before coming off ... 185º internal
On the table soaking it's aching feet in warm chicken fat ... LOL!

Thank you, they tasted great too!

I have a propane conversion on my ECB, so I can get it up to 325º easily, otherwise I would do it on your grill with offset heat. I prewarmed to just over 300º before putting on the bird using mesquite & hickory this time. I prefer pecan for this. Not sure of the size ... perhaps 3 to 4 lbs. which took roughly 2 hours. I think it would have been better with another half hour this time. Used a little EVOO with seasoend salt and Emiril's poultry seasoning inside and out. one third of a can of beer is all that is needed. Personally, I don't like canned beer, so I rinse out a pop can and put beer in it from my bottle.

Hope that info is useful to you.

better than toothpicks to keep the moisture in the bird

When I do beer in the butt bird, I put a potato in the neck hole. Then ring the bird with potatoes. There is always a fight for the necktato but the rest are good too.
