I'm sure most of you have seen or used the beer can holder that you place a whole chicken on
and cook on the grill. I have tasted a chicken cooked this way, but I have never cooked one
this way myself.
I saw a couple of the can holders at the store, grabbed a couple of chickens and headed home
to fire up the old Snerd family charcoal grill.
This first pic is of the cleaned chickens coated in my homemade rub and barbecue sauce.
I dumped out about half of the two cans of beer (down my throat) , added some spices
and placed a large slice of apple in the chicken to seal up the neck cavity to keep the
steam in. I then seated the chickens on top of the cans.
After my coals got just right, I placed the chickens in a tinfoil pie pan, and poured about a 1/4"
of apple juice in the bottom of the pans. This is how they looked going on the grill.
My grill temperature was at 275 degrees, so I threw on some damp hickory chips for smoky goodness, and shut the lid. This is how the first bird looked when I brought it in to the
kitchen two and a half hours later.
And at last, after allowing the chicken to rest for about ten minutes, I carved off a few slices of the breast, grabbed a leg, and headed for the table. The side dishes are baked beans, mac and cheese,
and cinnamon apple sauce. This evening's beverage was Michelob Amber Bock.
Since this is my first dinner pic, I wanted to make sure I had all of the bases covered.
Along with dinner we have the following items:
Bushmaster M4-gery complete with EO Tech sight
Sig P220 .45
Spare mags for all three weapons
Boker AK-74 folding knife
AR-15 magazine for some reading material
Salt and Pepper shakers
Brinkmann Maxfire flashlight
My Sig pistol is resting on one of the 25 meter AQT course targets. The top of the target
is titled Cook or Rifleman? Hopefully ya'll will think I am a pretty good cook.

said "No Way"!
