INGREDIENTS
  • 1 (4-pound) whole chicken
  • 2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil or other vegetable oil
  • 1 (12-ounce) can beer, room temperature, opened and half-full
  • 1 tablespoon kosher salt or sea salt
  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh thyme leaves, or 1 tablespoon dried thyme
  • 1 tablespoon black pepper
INSTRUCTIONS
  • Prepare the grill. If you are using charcoal, put the coals on one side of the grill, leaving the other side free of coals. If you are using a gas grill, fire up only half of the burners.
  • Season the chicken and rub it with oil. Mix the salt, pepper, and thyme in a little bowl, and rub it all over the chicken. Rub the chicken all over with olive oil.
  • Lower chicken into the half-filled beer can. Make sure the beer can is open, and only half-filled with beer. If you want, you can put a sprig of thyme (or another herb like rosemary or sage) in the beer can. Lower the chicken onto the open can, so that the chicken is sitting upright, with the can in its cavity.
  • Grill on indirect heat. Place the chicken on the cool side of the grill, using the legs and beer can as a tripod to support the chicken on the grill and keep it stable.
    Cover the grill and walk away. After an hour, check the chicken and refresh the coals if needed (if you are using a charcoal grill). Keep checking the chicken every 15 minutes or so, until a meat thermometer inserted into the thickest part of the thigh reads 165°F. A 4-pound chicken usually takes around 1.5 hours.
  • Carefully transfer the chicken to a tray or pan. One way to do this is to slide a metal spatula under the bottom of the beer can. Use tongs to hold the top of the chicken. Lift the chicken, beer can still inside, and move it to a tray. Let the chicken rest for 10 minutes. Carefully lift the chicken off of the can. If it gets stuck, lay the chicken on its side, and pull out the can with tongs.
