Dads Cook – Beer Can Chicken

Another great weekend for the grill.  My husband decided to make a ‘beer-can’ chicken.  Here you see it with grilled sweet onions.  My husband is a charcoal loyalist and believes that to get true grilled flavor, lump charcoal is the way to go.  A beer-can chicken is a whole chicken that is placed over a circular holder, similar to an upright chicken roaster, in which a beer can is in the center.  Open the beer with a can opener and pour out some of the beer and add 1/2 of a cut up lemon.  Slow roast on the grill until desired doneness.
