Beer Can Chicken!

A can of beer, opened at the top with herbs thrown in for good measure and flavor, makes a handy pedestal on which to prop an unsuspecting 6 pound bird. The beer inside the bird keeps it moist as it roasts in the covered grill.

5 or 6 pound chicken
veggies of your choice: I used chunks of zucchini, red onion, red pepper, and turnips. Tossed the veggies in olive oil, salt and pepper and some of the spices used for the chicken rub.

I used a mix by McCormick, Fiery 5 Pepper, and salt and pepper for the chicken rub.

I used a meat thermometer set for 175 degrees. I also used indirect heat with the middle burner turned off and the other two set at medium which kept the grill at about 350. Took about an hour and 45 minutes for the 6 lb chicken to roast--but grills do vary so that's why using a thermometer is a good idea.

I added the veggies during the last hour.........they get nice and caramelized as they roast--yum!
