+1 to this. Substituting a can of Dr. Pepper works great also.

don't forget to let your meat rest after you take it off the grill. to let it rest wrap it up in tin foil for about 5 minutes - makes the meat much more juicy.

slow cooked ribs with some dry rub are easily my favourite BBQ item - makes me want to forget all about tony roma......

honey mustard salmon can also be quite tasty.

i have also BBQ'd bannas soaked in a concoction of rum and cinamon - the bannas are quite tasty with ice cream.....i keep meaning to try the recipie with peaches and nectarines.

Beer can overrated.... water/beer doesn't start to steam or anything till long after the chicken is done, way over done, water boils at 212f chicken done at 175...

Chicken and Pork center loin roast yum yum. It's a big hutterite chicken, notice the size compared to the sheet pan.

Do you really think it takes longer to boil water than to cook a chicken?

The internal temperature of the meat and the ambient temperature of the barbecue are separate. You can have your beer/pop/liquid steam before the chicken is cooked. I've made many different variations of this recipe now, and there's always under half a can of liquid left at the end - and the chicken is never dry or overcooked.

Yep, on a bbq... Try boiling a can of water at a temp that wouldn't burn a chicken, including flare ups from drippings.

Komskies, the can of beer is inside the chicken right?

Correct, the can is inside the chicken. Seeing as the can is metal (aluminum is a good conductor) and having it inside the cavity of the chicken (radiant and convective heat) it's not unreasonable to think that the liquid can steam before the chicken is done. A 400║ bbq != 400║ internal meat temperature.

Did you have a bad experience with this recipe? I can assure you that I've successfully used this method of cooking many times and never had burned chicken.

If flare ups are an issue, just put a drip tray under the chicken. I don't see how flare ups are happening though as you should be using indirect heat for this recipe.

The can pokes out of the chicken a bit.

You said you have a propane bbq right? I'm inclined to say no, as you run the risk of messing up your burners. If you love the taste of charcoal too much, you can buy a charcoal grill at Barbecues Galore for $99.

If your talking about lava rock and bricks, yes, they hold some good stuff and start smoking just preheating...

I think I'm going to pull the trigger on this: http://www.biggreenegg.com/ Anybody have one?

After getting a basic Weber kettle charcoal grill, my gas weber sits unused.

Nope, but assuming you live in Calgary, Barbecues Galore has a model: http://www.barbecuesgalore.ca/cooking.bpsx?CookingID=72

Interesting that they don't list a price for it though.

Oki Doki,

Nope, it just didn't do any magic trick, the chicken was done long before the liquid was hot enough to do anything. Chicken done 175f beer boil @ 212f.

The only way you could steam the beer before the chicken is done would be to put a torch on the bottom of the can... We are talking about a bbq heating a can of beer that is inside a chicken... and your suggesting indirect heat..?

You know, indirect heat, like an oven.

Have you ever braised anything before? The liquid boils long before the meat is cooked through.

Sorry, not trying to sound like a jackass, I'm just confused by your comments.

I had planned on getting a new gas grill but, after using charcoal and the difference in taste, I'm looking to upgrade my charcoal. I've read lots of reviews and it seems as though the green egg is the king of charcoal bbq's.
