Prep time 5 mins

Serves 4-6

Hardwood Mesquite

Brew up some major flavor. All it takes is our Chicken Rub, a can of beer, and some Traeger mesquite heat for moist & tender poultry perfection.

Ingredients

1 (3-5 LB) WHOLE CHICKEN

1 CAN BEER

Preparation

Tuck the wing tips back and truss the chicken legs together.

Season chicken generously with Traeger Chicken Rub, including the cavity.

Open the can of beer and set the chicken on top of the beer. Make sure all but the bottom 1-1/2” of the beer can is in the cavity of the chicken.

When ready to cook, start the Traeger according to grill instructions. Set the temperature to 350 degrees F and preheat, lid closed 10-15 minutes.

Place chicken on a sheet tray and place directly on the grill grate. Cook for 60-75 minutes or until the internal temperature registers 165 degrees F in the thickest part of the breast.

Remove from the grill and let rest 5-10 minutes before carving. Enjoy!

Great Way To Cook A Chicken
I cooked a 3 pound whole organic chicken with this recipe except I covered the chicken with olive oil and sprinkled Italian seasonings inside and outside of the chicken. (What ever was in the spice cabinet like Basil, Rosemary, Oregano, etc. plus salt and pepper.) I cooked it until the thigh and breast were at least 160F. Even the white meat comes out super moist and flavorful!

Beer can chicken
I let it smoke for an hour then I cook it and I use Coors original beer 16 oz can with red potatoes and the scrumptious green beans that's always a good challenge cuz I love cooking on my Traeger peace and I used apple wood

Super juicy!
I did two 3.5 pound chicken for 1hr and 10mins on "High" temperature.
They came out just perfect! Skin was super crisp and the meat was heavenly tender and juicy! - It definitely won't be the last time I did this quick and easy recipe.
