Today we're making Beer Butt Chicken. My recipe is at Yes You Can Grill. That version is for the grill. It's quicker than smoking which is what we're doing today. If you decided to smoke your bird, then expect to spend between 4 and 5 hours cooking up the chicken. That sounds like a lot of time, but you just need to check the chicken every hour or two, so it's not as labor intensive at it sounds.
If you don't drink beer, you can use soda. It works out better to use regular rather than diet (for some reason). My pick is Pepsi, but yellow soft drinks work out well too.
