    Olive oil on the outside with cracked pepper, kosher salt and a little garlic powder. Using a black ipa for the beer. Its a beer a friend gave me that sucks as ipa's go.

    did you brine the birdy first?

    never used an ipa for this type of thing, was always told (by people i trust) that crappy lagers work best and i have never strayed.

    be sure to update!

    I didn't brine. It was last minute idea by my wife. The only reason I used an ipa is cause it was what I had in a can and this black ipa sucks. So I figured I would use it up for something.

    i find cooking with hoppy beers doesn't end well. at least in my experiments, most beer dishes do well with lightly hopped malty beers, or cheapo american lagers. the hop bitterness doesnt seem to pair well with many flavors...

    The chicken turned out great. Lot's of leftovers that we are going to use in chicken tortilla soup. The chicken was completely fall off the bone. I think it would have been better brined but like I mentioned it was a last minute idea so there wasn't time.

    i'd say normally this, but i don't think much of the hop bitterness would get into the meat with beercan chicken.

    I use Schlitz for beer can chicken .... mixed with cider vinegar and Worcester sauce .....
    And smoke on hickory .... lots of Hungarian paprika involved ....

    makes sense since the chicken isn't actually in contact with the beer...

    Glad it was yummy. good way to dispose of crappy beer.
