It's not the beer that's being drank (that steams into the chicken I presume) it's all about the chicken in this thread.
yip cooking and flavoring the chicken on a bbq with the steam from the beer... different style beers will give different flavors to the meat I presume..It's not the beer that's being drank (that steams into the chicken I presume) it's all about the chicken in this thread.
I'm feeling peckish now......I use this sauce for my rotisserie chicken and it is literally the best chicken you've ever tried. No reason you couldn't use it for beercan chicken too. I don't add the 3 tsp of salt though, as I want to live! 1 tsp is enough.
We sometimes order Portuguese style chicken from local restaurants. Our recipe tastes similar & it's so easy to make at home! Tender, juicy and flavorful!www.photosandfood.ca
Also, add some potatoes to some of the sauce and cook along with/under (if rotisserie-ing) the chicken. Heavenly.
I can't help to think it's a bit of a myth.. still have to try it myself.. I do cook on my weber bbq at least once a week, but never tried a beer can chicken..I found it worked well on a closed lid BBQ. But not as good as just a spatchcocked chicken. And I also think it works best if you drink 3/4 of the beer first, else the beer doesn't get a steam on. (And also you drink more beer).
