The Best Beer Can Chicken Recipe
If you want amazing flavorful chicken, this is the best recipe you can get!
- 1 Full sized Chicken
- Pork and Poultry Traeger Rub
- 1 12 oz can Beer of you choice
- 1 Lime
- Signature Traeger Wood
Preheat smoker to 350°
Pour Pork and Poultry Traeger Rub all over the chicken and make sure to get it in between legs and wings and even some in the cavity.
Slice lime in half and stick lime as far as you can up cavity.
One the smoker is preheated, open the beer can and stick the chicken straight up and put it on top of the open beer can. If you have a chicken throne like I do, pour the 12 ounces of beer into the chicken thrown and the other lime into the chicken throne and put the chicken on top.
Let the chicken smoke for 60-75 minutes. Make sure the internal temperature has reached 165°. We don't want anyone getting food poisoning!
Once 165° has been achieved. Pull the chicken out and let it rest for 5 minutes. Once rested, ENJOY
