Roasted Garlic & Herb Beer Can Chicken
Prep time: 
Cook time: 
Total time: 
Serves: 4-6
The beer makes the chicken moist and flavorful!
  • 1 4-lb. chicken, whole
  • 2 Tbsp. olive oil
  • 3-4 Tbsp. McCormick Grill Mates Roasted Garlic & Herb (or other poultry spice)
  • 1 can beer
  1. Rinse chicken inside and out, and pat dry. Rub the chicken with the olive oil, then rub with spices. Take a few swigs of beer (you don't want it to be too full) and place the can in the cavity of the bird, and secure it on a flat surface (like on a roasting pan). Use the legs of the bird as a tripod, or support to keep it stable.
  2. Grill over medium-high heat for 1¼ - 1½ hours. Cover the grill for the first hour of cooking. After that, check the bird periodically to see if it has reached the internal temperature of 160-165 degrees. Let the chicken rest for 10 minutes before serving.
