Crispy skin all the way around with moist and tender meat, who could ask for more? This can be done either in the over or indirect on the BBQ, either way is delicious.

Instructions
  1. Pre- heat oven to 375 or BBQ to medium high heat.
  2. Thoroughly dry chicken with paper towels. Rub the entire surface of the chicken with oil. Season chicken, inside and out with seasoning of choice. (See cooks notes for a link to my chicken seasoning.)
  3. Open beer or soda can and pour out about 1/2 the liquid. Punch an additional 2 or 3 holes in the top of the can. Place can in roasting pan. (If cooking on the grill make sure to use a metal pan)
  4. Place chicken onto the can legs down. Place a small potato or small onion in the neck and pull the skin over to seal the opening.
  5. Place in oven or on the grill over indirect heat. Roast until internal temperature is 165 about 1 1/2 hours.
  6. Allow to rest for 10 minutes before removing chicken from the can.
Recipe Notes

Chicken Seasoning

Using a beer can rack helps to stabilize the chicken but is not necessary.

If you don't want to use a beer can, you can use just the beer can rack and stuff the cavity of the chicken with herbs and a lemon.
