Did you know, that we are the original beer can chicken creators? Really! Ok no, but we like to use the method…

Using a can opener, place additional holes in can for venting moisture.

After thoroughly washing your chicken, cover outside of chicken with your favorite rub.  You can also shove some up it’s hole!


Experiment with different rubs to find the one that makes your bird squirt with pleasure!

Prepare your smoker at a temperature between 225 and 250 degrees.  We used mesquite for this particular smoke.  Once the smoker is prepared, add the stand with the violated chicken to your smoker.  Touch up with additional rub if desired.

Every half hour, get your meat wet with your favorite sauce or fluid. We ran out of our famous white sauce so we settled for some apple juice

We do not like to waste smoker space, so think of something amazing to take up the free space….How about chorizo stuffed peppers?

Your chicken is choked when it reaches a temperature of 160°F in the breast, 170°F in the thigh.
