The Big Easy® Beer Can Chicken Recipe
Beer Can Chicken is a popular recipe for backyard cookouts. The evaporating beer flavors the meat from the inside, so choose your beer wisely. Here's a new twist on this classic favorite—using The Big Easy® Oil-Less Turkey Fryer to keep the chicken moist and lock in the seasoning.
Rinse the chicken and pat dry.
Apply light coat of cooking oil to the chicken. Then, coat in your favorite rub or spices. Insert an oven-proof meat thermometer into the meaty section of breast.
Open beer and place the chicken cavity over the can. Lower leaving some of the beer can exposed. Then set it in The Big Easy® cooking basket.
Place cooking basket into The Big Easy fryer and turn on the cooker.
Remove chicken when internal temperature reaches 160°F, about 1 hour.
Place the chicken in a pan or tray. Tent with foil and let rest for 15 to 20 minutes. This will allow the temperature to rise to 165°F.
Carve and serve.
