Not sure what made me decide to try and cook a Beer Butt Chicken on my own this week. My neighbor made one a few weeks ago-and I think I read some of my friend's post on Facebook talking about how they were giving it a try...so I guess I thought ...what the heck! I can do that!
It was pretty easy- First- Amber pulled out his neck, heart and other gross parts. Then, I drank 1/2 of the beer, and I rubbed Big Bird down with butter and sprinkled whatever was in the seasoning drawer on him. Next, I cut up an orange and put 1/2 up his butt and 1/2 on his head (what a cute little hard hat).I sprayed the beer can with Pam (for easy removal later) - and balanced him on the grill heated to 200 degrees! I checked him every hour- or when I heard him sizzle (he got a little tipsy and fell over once or twice) Three hours later I pulled him off the grill and he was PERFECT! Everyone loved it - easy, peasey!
