I sometimes use chicken sitters to save space on the WSM. I can get more birds in it vertically than by spatchcocking (although I like spatching better). I have both single and double sitters (gifts) and I can get 4 - 6 on the big WSM or the big offset.

I totally agree with this reason for doing beer can chicken (or, as I mentioned, because it impresses some guests). But other than cooking space & for "wow" factor, spatchcocking a chicken is the way to go.

another vote for spatchcocking, its the only way i do it!!!! beer can chicken is much harder to get cooked evenly, not that it cant be done, though. i also like to put wooden skewers through the bird so it makes it easier to handle like this:



the only thing bad about spatchcocking is the chicken doesn't get a beer, and beer is delicious. i make up for it by drinking an extra for the bird.
