It was really good, at least we thought so. I was worried for the last few hours because the fat was not rendering like some said it would.
I just used the holder. I wanted the fat to run out and down to the drip pan. I didn't use beer, I don't buy beer, I make my own and keg it so I just used a pop can with water and a TBS of the poultry seasoning dumped into/onto it. I have used beer many times for chicken and turkey and honestly, I don't think it made a difference. I think the seasoning is more important.
