Beer Butt Chicken

"A whole chicken is seasoned and slowly cooked on the grill. This is a bit unorthodox, but the end result is moist, flavorful, and amazing. All you'll need is some chicken, butter, beer, and seasonings."

Ingredients

1 cup butter

2 tablespoons garlic salt

2 tablespoons paprika

salt and pepper to taste

1 (12 fluid ounce) can beer

1 (4 pound) PURE POULTRY whole chicken

Directions
  • Preheat an outdoor grill for low heat.

  • In a small skillet, melt 1/2 cup butter. Mix in 1 tablespoon garlic salt, 1 tablespoon paprika, salt, and pepper.

  • Discard 1/2 the beer, leaving the remainder in the can. Add remaining butter, garlic salt, paprika, and desired amount of salt and pepper to beer can. Place can on a disposable baking sheet. Set chicken on can, inserting can into the cavity of the chicken. Baste chicken with the melted, seasoned butter.

  • Place baking sheet with beer and chicken on the prepared grill. Cook over low heat for about 3 hours, or until internal temperature of chicken reaches 180 degrees F (80 degrees C).

Tip

  • Aluminum foil can be used to keep food moist, cook it evenly, and make clean-up easier.
