Beer Butt Chicken!

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!

Beer butt is one of my favs. I do my turkey on the grill as well.
