JD’s Beer Can Chicken



  • 1 tablespoon grated lemon peel
  • 3 teaspoons JD’s Shaker Seasoning (Hot or Mild)
  • 1 teaspoon of JD's Bloody Mary Mix
  • 1 broiler/fryer chicken (3 to 4 pounds)
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil 1 can (12 ounces) beer or nonalcoholic beer

Combine the first three ingredients. Gently loosen skin from chicken breasts, rub olive oil and 2 tablespoons spice mixture under the skin. Rub remaining spice mixture over the skin.
Place chicken in a large resealable plastic bag, seal bag. Refrigerate for at least 1 hour or overnight. Prepare grill for indirect heat, using a drip pan. Pour out a third of the beer. Carefully poke additional holes in the top of the can with a can opener.
Holding the chicken with legs pointed down, lower the chicken over the can so it fills the body cavity. Place chicken in the drip pan, grill covered, over indirect medium heat for 1-1/4 to 1-1/2 hours or until a meat thermometer reads 180°. Remove the chicken from grill, cover and let stand for 10 minutes. Remove chicken from the can and enjoy..
