I apologize in advance to my vegetarian blog followers. But I love beer butt chicken. It not only tastes great but my husband always does all the work. We always do two at a time so we have extra chicken we can shred and freeze. And then there is broth to make with those bones. Nothing makes a house smell better. Here the hubbs is rubbing the chicken with butter. Here's what I made. But you can spread on any amount of herbs, seasonings and butter that you desire.
2 tbsp salted butter, softened
1/2 tsp pepper
1 tsp salt
The butt of the chicken sits on the can (not shown) But it is there. You need to drink about a 1/4 of the beer. And it doesn't even need to be beer. I used coke last time.
Dean put foil under the chickens to catch the grease. But you could use a foil pan. Use lots of coals and then cover those babies up.
They are done! It takes about an hour. These were smart chickens. I don't know how many pounds they are but most smart chickens are about the same size.
Let's eat. I get the crispy wing!
