looks good Smokey paul! I love good ole drunken chickens. before you slide the beer can up in the chicken try bending the beer can tab straight up without breaking it off and peel you about 3 to 4 bulbs of garlic and use the tab to hold the garlic and man it is a nice little treat after it has been smoking a few hours and you pull the can out and there is a few tasty garlic bulbs roasted to enjoy and it gives a little flavor to the chickens also. after the chickens top hole has opened up  i put a strip of aluminum foil over the holes to help keep moisture in. good stuff bud! thanks for the pics! awesome!

Man the chickens look pretty darn good.


Thanks for the tip upsman, I will have to try the garlic and foil trick for the wife next time I do up beer chicken for her.

you are welcome  smokey paul and Tom37!  glad to be apart of this forum and give any ideals and tips i can. I sometimes even stretch the skin over the top hole and put a couple toothpicks that have been soaking in water like skewers and sort of sew the hole shut and then use the foil you will see the hole open for sure on this method better like a pop up timer when to put the foil on when the toothpicks slide out and the hole opens.

I am redoing part of this post to try out a new program suggested by one of our members, DaSmoker. It works great I re-sized the first 4 pic and left the others the same.. picture qty looks the same and the real pic is still intact on my computer because i renamed it when saving the re-sized one.
