There’s quite a bit of lore surrounding beer can chicken, and for good reason. Just look at that burnished mahogany bird. The steam from the brew flavors the meat and keeps it moist. The can props the chicken up, so it roasts evenly–no scorching, no flipping, no stressing. And you get to drink some beer. We’re believers.
I started making beer can chicken a few years ago and ever since then it’s been a family favorite. I can honestly say that this chicken is the juiciest chicken and is a million times better than the roasted chickens you get at the grocery store. The steam from the beer creates an amazing juicy chicken.
And here’s the great news! It doesn’t really matter what beer you use. Use whatever you have in the house. I’ve used all different sort of beers and the result is always the same. There really is no need to be fancy with your beer.
