A chicken roasted atop a beer can. Sounds a little strange, but it makes for a tasty bird. Here is a great version (tested to perfection) of this classic. This recipe is a bit zingier and more flavorful. Ah, Beer Can, aka Beer Butt Chicken, is almost an urban food legend but you know what? It works. Two main ingredients (beer and chicken) make it pure guy fare. It has been especially touted by barbecue cookbook author Steven Raichlen. The beer tenderizes the chicken and doubles as a vertical spit. The result is a charred but tender, out-of-this-world, effortless grilled bird. Any beer works in this recipe and a side of steak fries and a Caesar salad is all you need. If it is a rainy Mother or Father's Day, this works just as well in your oven. If you can find a 'tall boy' can of beer, all the better.
