How to Make Beer Butt Chicken on the Barbeque Grill
It's hard to say when or where Beer Butt Chicken originated. A safe guess would be that a group of guys came up with this gem of a technique for barbeque grilling a whole chicken. Picture some good old boys sitting around guzzling cheap beer and not being too keen on keeping watch over chicken pieces roasting on the grill. One of the fellows probably pondered on the situation. Since the cavity portion of a hole chicken is roughly the size and shape of a beer can . . .the rest is history.
If you'd like to make Beer Butt Chicken, see my Beer Butt Chicken Guide at Yes! You Can Grill. I have Beer Butt Chicken photos up as well, so this recipe is really easy to understand and follow.
You may also want to check out Beer Club of the Month where you can have new beers delivered every month and have a different flavor every time you make Beer Butt Chicken. My son lives in a micro brew area, and he turned me on to the fact that you can find a way lots more variety than at the grocery store on beer. Unfortunately, I don't live in a micro brew area as I'm sure many other don't, so it's really neat to just set up a subscription and have something new and cool every month.
