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
  • 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!
