Default First Beer Can Chicken (Pron)

Been wanting to do a beer can chicken for a long time. With the garage sale purchase of a weber grill, I thought I'd give it a try. I got a 4.77lb all natual chicken. Washed it all down, and patted it dry. I took a knife and poked holes all over the skin so the flavors could get through to the meat. I rubbed a little EVOO all over it, then sprinkled some rub in. In the picture, you can see that I am also soaking some chunkes from my apricot tree in a glass of beer.

I won a set of seasonings in a contest last fall, so I decided to use them on my bird.

I ran about 335 through the first hour of my cook. Here is my bird at the hour mark when I took the lid off ot rotate him so the breast is to the fire.

I let it go another hour, for a 2 hour total time. I checked him, and found that I did get him a little hotter than I really wanted it to get, (180 in the breast, and about 195 in the legs), but it was still pretty farken tasty! Here is the final product after I wrapped in foil to rest. Thanks for looking

I did a 7 1/2 pounder on Mother's day with root beer and pulled at 165 in the breast and it came out really juicy and flavorful.

Love it!

I got me a couple of THESE. They make things easy. Also easy to get the bird on and off without messing up the skin. The pan catches the juices too.
