    It was just your usual beer can chicken.

    Used the one on the left, 4.23# @ .59 a pound.

    I used a mixture of Yoshida's,

    for BBQBUBBA [​IMG] some KC Masterpiece granulated garlic and brown sugar.

    Half way through at 275' with hickory and mesquite.

    I took it out at 170' at the thigh.

    I didn't get a plated pic because I just dove in on a quarter.
  2. looks goooood. I have a ham ready to go for in the morning, but now will probably throw on a 'yardbird' with it!!!!!!

    Ron, I like the browning on the skin. Looks like you got a good buy at that price. Thanks for sharing the Q View.

    Thanks for posting with pictures b/c that helps a lot. I have some questions b/c I would like to do a couple of beer can chickens next.

    1st. Did you brine the chicken?
    2nd. If you did brine, what did you use?
    3rd. You said you used garlic, brown sugar and a marinade. Did you mix all these and rub them in or did you do it differently?
    4th. After you rubbed it down did you add anything to the beer?
    5th. I have what y'all call a ECB. Can I remove the water pan and just use the beer can to keep juices in or will the beer evaporate before it's done?
