Roasted Beer Can Chicken
Prep time 5 mins
Cook time 75 mins|
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.
1 (3-5 LB) WHOLE CHICKEN
1 CAN BEER
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, set the Traeger to 350℉ and preheat, lid closed for 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℉ in the thickest part of the breast.
Remove from the grill and let rest 5-10 minutes before carving. Enjoy!
*Cook times will vary depending on set and ambient temperatures.
