Beer can chicken
I have a OTS 22" kettle and after reading all the reviews thought I would try beer can chicken but without the beer can. Found a rack that would hold the chicken upright but it wont clear the lid. I had a pretty small chicken (2.3 lbs) and I did get it to clear the lid by pushing the chicken down as far as I could on the holder. The chicken was great but I was wondering if anybody has the same problem and what to do about it in the future?
I used the side pockets for the charcoal and cooked at between 375 and 425 degrees. Can I take the top rack out and put the chicken holder on the charcoal rack? Will this do the job?
