I've been threatening to do this for some time, so last night I fired up the ol' Char-Griller and rendered up some of the most tasty chicken I have ever tasted.

Prep was easy; just wash the birds and pat dry. Rub the inside and outside surfaces with olive oil, then dry rub inside and out. Install a medium-sized shallot in the neck opening. Open a can of beer (actually two...) and drink half of the contents, leaving the can(s) half full. Poke more holes in the top of the can(s), then add some of the rub to the beer. Place the can(s) of beer in the handy dandy beer-can-up-the-butt rack and install the chix.

The smoker temp was at 200* when I placed the chix in the smoker, up to 225* for the rest of the smoke. They stayed in for about 2 hours.

Here's some pix of the chix, sorry for the poor quality... my camera sux out loud!
Looks good enough to eat if you ask me!
Good work Hawg!
good looking chicken hey this is the only way to cook them birds good and moist,i use apple juice and mix a little rub in with it in mine,also done big ol turkey on a can and that's some fine eats!! good job on the chicks!
The pictures do no justice to the finale, but let me assure you, the actual product is a mighty tasty alternative to the norm I'm used to.

I luv this place!
Thanks! The skin was as crispy as you'd ever want!
