Beer Can Chicken

One of my favorite things about the weekend is seeing my husband pull out his smoker! Thankfully he is willing to share his recipe here! Ahh...only 4 more days until Friday!


  • 5-6 lb young chicken
  • 12 oz can beer (any beer will do)
  • Everglades poultry seasoning or Old Bay seasoning
  • 2 cloves minced garlic
  • Hickory chunks
  • Charcoal
  • Olive oil
  1. Light charcoal and wait until coals are white
  2. Fill water pan 3/4 full and add 2 Tbsp seasoning to water
  3. Empty 2/3 of beer, leaving 1/3 in the can, add minced garlic to can
  4. Remove neck and giblets from chicken, rub with olive oil, and coat under skin, in cavity, and outside with seasoning. Place beer can in cavity, and set upright on rack in smoker.
  5. Add 3-4 chunks of hickory (overwhelming flavor, so don't add too much) every 30-45 minutes until done, Chicken is done when internal temperature of breast is 165 degrees, approximately 3-5 hours, depending on size of chicken.
  6. Let rest, and enjoy!
