alright, here's what you need to try. Exclamation Very Happy Smile Laughing Cool Embarassed Razz Twisted Evil

1/2 can of beer
1/2 tbs of butter
2 tbs granulated garlic
2 tbs montreal chicken seasoning
2 tbs McCormick herb mix shake
2 tbs olive oil

pour all the ingredients into the beer and GENTLY stir (it will foam up if stirred to fast). Insert into the cavity of the chicken. On the outside of the chicken, shake on some cajun shake (premixed seasoning--I used the generic that I bought at Kroger's). Cook on the grill with indirect heat for a little over an hour (or until done). Take a sharp knife and cut the chicken into parts (breast, thigh, leg, etc.) Put the chicken into a deep dish and pour the beer gravy into the dish. Use the gravy and ladle it over the chicken. Sit back and watch how everyone will attack the chicken because it's simply the best stuff they've ever had.

*I did not smoke this. This was purely grilled on my charcoal grill*

Yea, it sounds great.
Got any pics?
I assume this starts out as a beer-butt chicky, then goes from there.....right?

Thanks,
Weldon

Weldon,

It's purely beer butt chicken. I just like the stuff in the middle a lot.

Unfortunately, I don't have any pics. Maybe next time. I'm on vacation all next week and I may do another and take some pics.

A+, But am I the only one here that plugs up the neck cavity with a small potato or something?

Nope, but I like to use a half of a lemon or a lime. The other half goes in the can.

I tried plugging the neck hole with a potato but I never found that it added anything to the cooking process. I now leave it open and it cooks just fine. This last cook only took a little over an hour and the meat was moist and tender--as usual.

I'm with you. I always plug up the neck with a potato. I also rub the whole chicken down with a little vegitable oil before applying the dry rub in and out.

I like to cram as much of an onion into the neck as I can fit. Then when my wife makes enchiladas from some of the chicken, she uses that smoked onion chopped up with the chicken.

I don't know that whatever you put into the neck really adds much flavor to the chicken (I'm sure a little flavor is added). But for me, it's more to keep the heat and juices in the cavity of the chicken instead of letting it all out the top (or neck in this case).
