I really appreciate that--Thanks a lot. CharlieBeer can makes a nice bird, but as mentioned you only need water cuz that’s all steam is. I actually have a can made for turkey. It’s a big stainless horn fashioned up then almost horizontal that you just fill with your choice of liquid. That said, the spatchcock bird on a smoker is the way to go. Much better smoke penetration and just as juicy. Vote; spatchcock.
Well- Jake==That does sound great. Thanks......I've seen a pretty tasty recipe for a beer can chicken that had beer and aromatics and other things that mad a sauce in the can that mixed with chicken drippings. Pour over chicken when finished. I'll have to look for it but I'm gonna do it soon. Looked delicious. I spatchcock often but have also had great success with drunk Chicken. I'm in the minority it seems but if you use a good full beer I can taste it on the chicken. With that said I almost always spray my chickens and even wings with beer as they cook. Adds great flavor
