Beer Butt Chicken
For about 10 years, my brother and I have been cooking "Beer Butt Chicken" on the charcoal grill. I am still amazed that something so simply prepared tastes so good. Originally, we just popped the top on a beer can, set the chicken down on the can and carefully set it on the grill. Pour (yeah right) or drink off about a third of the beer and then add your favorite seasonings to the beer before inserting the beer in the chicken's cavity and its even better. Regardless, you end up with a really moist grilled chicken that goes really well with "tater salad".
Of course the entrepenuer's of this great country seized the opportunity to make a buck and have since created a neat little rack that keeps the beer and chicken from tipping over. God Bless their little hearts.
