Sizzling Summertime Eats: Sonny’s Beer Can Chicken


Moist on the inside and crispy on the outside – with just the right hint of smoke – this recipe is perfect for a weekday dinner or weekend get-together. Serve it with an array of BBQ sides, like baked beans and potato salad, or on top of a hearty salad.


-1 whole chicken
-1 cup poultry rub
Budweiser or any lager
-2 tablespoons Cajun seasoning


Pour quarter can of beer in Cajun seasoning. Inject the Cajun/beer mixture in the breast of the chicken. Season the entire chicken with rub. Stuff the beer can inside the chicken. Cook the chicken in your smoker at 350 degrees for 75-90 minutes or until internal temperature reaches 165 degrees. Rest for 10 minutes and remove the beer can.
