Part of the joy of being your local Big Green Egg distributor is being able to taste new flavors s and learn about new recipes to enjoy on the Big Green Egg. Here’s a recipe that is sure to be a summertime favorite, beer can chicken on the Big Green Egg!

Beer can chicken on the big green egg

•1 (4 to 5-pound) chicken
•1 (12-ounce) can beer
•1 cup apple cider
•2 tablespoons olive oil
•2 tablespoons balsamic vinegar

•Porcelain coated grid, 1 (12-ounce) beer can or “Sittin’ Chicken” Ceramic Roaster, 9 by 13-inch Drip Pan,
spray bottle.

Set the EGG for direct cooking with the porcelain coated grid and preheat the EGG to 375ºF.
Apply your favorite rub all over the chicken, even inside the cavity. Work the mixture gently into the skin
and under the skin wherever possible. Cover the chicken and set aside at room temperature for 30 minutes.
Pour half of the beer into the spray bottle. Add the apple cider, olive oil, and vinegar and set aside. If using
the Ceramic Roaster, pour the remaining beer into the cavity of the Roaster and slide the chicken onto the
Roaster, through the tail end. If using the beer can, slide the chicken down over the can.
Place the chicken, still on the Roaster, on the grid and close the lid of the EGG. Cook, using the spray
bottle to baste the chicken once or twice, for 20 minutes, or until the chicken is just beginning to brown all
over. Carefully lift the chicken (still on the Roaster) into the Drip Pan and close the lid of the EGG. Cook,
spraying the chicken with the basting spray several times, for 45 minutes to 1 hour, until the internal
temperature of the thigh reaches 170ºF and the chicken is a mahogany brown color. Using barbecue mitts
remove the chicken and present it on the Roaster to your guests. After they have reacted appropriately,
remove the chicken from the Roaster. Be careful: The can and the liquid inside are very hot.
Spray the chicken once more with the basting spray, cover with foil, and let rest for 10 minutes. Carve and serve.

Serves 4.
