Summer might be winding down, but my aspirations of becoming ‘Grill Master of the House’ are not. This is a technique I’ve heard being raved about for years but was out of my comfort zone, until now. Initially I wanted to try this Root Beer-Can Chicken recipe from Cooking Light, but for the life of me could not remember to pick up 2 cans of root beer (Mommy Brain never goes away, right?)… so I swiped one of hubby’s beer and let my imagination take over.
Removing the chicken was a challenge, and now I know why I’ve seen some pics where the can and chicken were placed on a baking sheet… I had to use my biggest tongs and try to grab hold of the chicken whilst gently removing her beer can stem. Eventually I won the battle, but it wasn’t pretty and the beer can may or may not have flown off the deck.
I’ve earned my Beer-Can Chicken Badge! Enjoy!
