      My brother still swears by it and still has the rest of my family bamboozled by it. When I do a spatchcocked chicken for them they always say "That's as good as Jim's" like it's some miracle or something. "How did you keep it so moist without the steam from the beer?", they say. "Um, I don't overcook it.", I say back. I don't know how many times we've played this same script. It must be dozens. Oh well. I have more beer to drink so I win, right?

        Wait a minute, are you saying you are supposed to put the chicken on the can with the beer still in it? All this time I've been drinking the beer first thinking the can was just to hold the chicken upright.

        Next time ask them how your bil can get beer, that hasn't reached or never would reach the boiling point, could possibly "steam" the chicken? Hmmm?

      Why are there so many "Spoil Sports"? Beer can chicken is fun to cook. And cook for friends and family. That is the only reason I cook Beer Can Chicken.
      I really don't like wasting PBR, so I spatchcock is my go-to. Besides, Spatchcock is fun to say, and when serving, "Here is your Spatchcock".

        Spatchcock is a fun word to say, isn't it? Right up there with cattywompus and didgeridoo.

        If you season spatchcock chicken with Suklebuster rub and soak the whole thing is beer then it might be pretty tasty AND you have your desire for alliteration covered !!!

      As I've gone through life I've learned to like several different things. One of them is beer can chicken! It rates right up there with red headed girls with freckles, lazy old dogs, and the best man from my first wedding. He calls at 2 in the morning because bail bondsmen are for people that don't have friends. It's ok to like things others don't!

    Our Favorite Backyard Smoker

    The amazing Karubecue is the most innovative smoker in the world. The quality of meat from this machine is astonishing. At its crux is a patented firebox that burns logs above the cooking chamber and sucks heat and extremely clean blue smoke into the thermostat controlled oven. It is our favorite smoker, period.

    The Pit Barrel Cooker May Be Too Easy


    The PBC has a rabid cult following for good reason. It is absolutely positively without a doubt the best bargain on a smoker in the world. Period. This baby will cook circles around the cheap offset sideways barrel smokers because temperature control is so much easier.

    Is This Superb Charcoal Grill A Kamado Killer?


    The PK-360, with 360 square inches of cooking space, this rust free, cast aluminum charcoal grill is durable and easy to use. Four-way venting means it’s easy to set up for two zone cooking with more control than single vent Kamado grills. It is beautifully designed, completely portable, and much easier to set up for 2-zone cooking than any round kamado.
