I love beer can chicken. I did a couple this sunday in the ECB and heres how it went. Brined in salt, sugar, pepper, minced garlic,chili flakes and cayenne for 6 hrs. Coated in EVOO and rubbed with emerils essence. Beer cans half drank cut tops open and added some rub, garlic and lemon pepper. Fired up the ECB to about 275 and smoked the yardbirds for around 2 1/2 hrs with hicory and apple chunks. Finished on the Weber Genesis to crisp the skin. I pulled the chicken for sammies and mixed in my homemade bbq sauce. I can't figure out how to post the link but if you are interested you can find it on SMF search steve's carolina style bbq sauce for PP. Served on CWBs with mac and cheese and baked beans.

Thanks Mark. The recipe is in the Pork section and Dean just posted a link to it since I'm a computer dummy.

Thanks buddy! They did have a very nice bronze tan. Pullin them for sandwiches almost rivals my pulled pork. I've got the smoke mixture just right, I do 3 to 1 apple to hickory with chicken and it comes out tasting great.

Its the Sam Adams glass, not sure if you could read the logo. They are really great for full flavored beers. I was drinking Bridgeport Hop Czar IPA damn tasty stuff and packs a punch too. 7.5% ABV
