Here it is, come get it. It's my daughter B-day party. She'll be 2. Some people may not even eat. I'm not for sure.
I plan on using small buns for the sammies. I think 2 butts will be plenty.
I have to be honest with you guys, I know this is a smoking meat forum but I plan to cook the birds in the oven then finish with BBQ sauce on the grill or maybe even in the oven. The butts will be smoked a few days before. Do you think I should do whole beer canned chickens or buy the chicken already cut up or just go with leg quarters? I am on a budget but I do not know how to prepare chicken in the oven with a method that produces juicy on the inside and crispy skin on the outside like beer canning does. Is there a way to roast chicken in the oven and get the same results as you would if you were to beer can whole chickens?
It takes about 1:45 - 2 hrs for one beer canned chicken at 350. If I were to put 4 birds in the oven set at 350 all at the same time, will the cooking time be longer?
Times will be the same for oven as smoker (can't believe I am giving oven advice, can you Rich?) for the most part 350 is 350 indoors or out..........and 4 chickens won't take much longer than 1 chicken.
Beer can them in the oven if that is what you want to do.
