Well, technically ROOT beer can chicken. I haven’t been to a grocery store in over 2 weeks, and beer weirdly wasn’t on my list of necessities so I’m working with what I have. It was SO good.
- Avocado oil
- Meat Church honey hog rub
- Whole chicken
- Heat grill to 375F.
- Pour 1/2 can root beer into a chicken throne and the other half into a spray bottle. (if you don’t have a chicken throne just keep your can 1-2 full and use that)
- Cover your chicken in avocado oil (or vegetable or canola or grapeseed- not olive) then rub the inside and outside in a sweet rub like Meat Church honey hog.
- Place the whole chicken, neck side up, on the throne/beer can and cook on the lowest grate. After the first 30 minutes continue spritzing the chicken with remaining root beer every 10-12 minutes until done. (internal temp of 165F).
