In Yer Grill. Bear Spray Chicken!

Mmmmmm. Bear.

I have tried this technique several different ways. All of them are good, but I have yet to find one that improves on the original recipe: http://www.foodreference.com/html/beerbut tchickenr.html

Why do this? The chicken is moist, infused with flavor, tender, and has a crispy skin. This is a knockout way to cook your chicken, and it's really cool! Now, doesn't this look good?



I do have a few things to add, however. First of all, get yourself a can holder or some other type of device for this dish. I got one here http://www.chefscatalog.com/store/catalog /prod.jhtml?cmCat=search&itemId=cprod4020 0 35.



It works great. There are other types of devices that will hold the can. The point here is, if you don't want your chicken sitting precariously on the grill and possibly tipping over, get one. It's hard to turn the chicken without one.

I know there are those of you that don't want to cook with beer. I would like to talk you into the beer. Not because I'm a heathen, but because there is a certain chemistry here. The yeast and malt in beer react with the chicken, particularly the skin, making it thin and crispy while the meat remains juicy. The alcohol evaporates anyway. However, if you really insist on forgoing the beer, mix 1 part apple cider vinegar with 3 parts water and drop in a couple cloves of garlic.

Keep an eye on the chicken while it is cooking. In my experience you need to turn it and baste it more frequently than most recipes suggest.

Make sure you let it rest after removing from the grill. This redistributes the juices in the chicken. It will be more tender and juicy that way. Ten minutes is not enough IMO. Give it 20. Make a foil tent and put it over the chicken while it is resting. After 20 minutes, cut it up and serve.

This is really, really, really good. Really.

Bon Appetit!
