BBQ Beer Can Chicken

I got my Weber Kettle BBQ from the Sunshine Garden Centre. And that is also where I got this recipe.

  1. 1/2 cup finely chopped onions
  2. 1/3 cup Dijon mustard
  3. 1/3 cup soy sauce
  4. 1/4 cup fresh lemon juice
  5. 1 1/2 tablespoons minced garlic
  6. 1 teaspoon chilli flakes
  7. 1 teaspoon salt
  8. 1 1/2 cups of beer
  9. 1 whole small/medium chicken
  1. In a small bowl, whisk together the marinade ingredients with 1 cup of beer
  2. Remove and discard any excess fat from the chicken and rinse under cold water
  3. Place the chicken in a large resealable container and pour in the marinade
  4. Refrigerate for AT LEAST 3 hours, turning occasionally
  5. Pour the remaining beer into the roaster cup
  6. Remove chicken from the container and discard the marinade
  7. Using the spike, insert into the base of the chicken and place over roaster cup
  8. Place the infusion cap over the neck
  9. Grill on the roaster until 180º C internal temperature (over direct medium heat for 40-50 minutes; using indirect method for 1 to 1 1/2 hours)
  10. Halfway through grilling, spoon the excess marinade back over the chicken
  1. Although originally "Beer Can Chicken" literally cooked the chicken on a beer can, this recipe assumes you have a chicken roaster accessory supplied by Weber.
