Anyone ever try this? Thinking of giving it a shot and would like some advice.
I use this for Turkey's, the image doesnt do the size justice, this sucker fits a 20 pound turkey with no problem:Well, the turkey I picked up is a “young turkey” and is 7.5 pounds.
I like the mason jar idea, tx smoker
That might work. Also considering a 16 oz can of something since it is a tiny bit bigger than the beer can chickens I do with 12 oz cans.
Sounds weird, but I’ve had success with Blue Moon. Something with the orange flavor and chicken goes well.
Either way, I’ll try to do something a little off the beaten path. Have to make the wife happy, too. Can’t get too ridiculous lol.
I can see the orange going really well with the turkey. Worst case just quarter a fresh orange and drop it in the beer if you're going with the Mason jar.Sounds weird, but I’ve had success with Blue Moon. Something with the orange flavor and chicken goes well.
To a large degree I would concur, however there is a slight flavor you get from the beer but mostly it's the yeast that has the greatest impact. You'll get a nice flavor from it but somehow the yeast also tenderizes the meat and helps to keep it moist. In a bygone era I did beer can chickens quite often and the yeast was really the only flavor I could pick up on but the bird itself was always super moist and juicy. I would also tend to agree that with a stronger flavored liquid you'd stand a chance of getting more flavor. Maybe a porter, stout, or a good bock beer would impart more flavor.These beer can cooks are supposedly bunk HOWEVER they work because they stand the bird upright and makes for much more even cooking temps.
