Beer Bum Chicken (Beer Butt Chicken) - Organic

Beer Butt Chicken - SIMPLE
This recipe isn’t any different than any other beer butt recipes; it’s just the one I tried and it worked.

As for those that want to debate the actual benefits or science associated with the use of the beer (or lack thereof); I don’t care one way or the other, it satisfies our taste buds just fine!

Preparation and Cooking Directions
1. Preheat BGE to 400 degrees with raised grid (2” extra)
2. Soften butter in microwave and spread over entire surface of chicken
3. Apply Paul Prudhommes Poultry Magic on the outside surfaces.
4. Using your favorite beer can chicken cooking device set it up and add the ½ can of beer
5. Place Chicken on the holder then place on Gird and insert meat thermometer into thickest part of the thigh
6. Let cook until the temperature reaches 180 degrees (somewhere around one hour)
7. Remove and let rest (watch that can and rack, it will be HOT!), slice and serve.
