Beer-Can Chicken

Yields: 4 servings
Cook time: 1 1/2 hours Prep time: 10 minutes

Ingredients

1 12-ounce can of beer, preferably Budweiser or other domestic beer
1 roasting chicken (4-5 pounds), preferably Amish or Organic
3 tablespoons of your favorite dry spice rub recipe, divided
Olive oil

Special Equipment

Church key can opener
Kingsford® Charcoal with Sure Fire™ Grooves
Vertical chicken roaster, optional

Instructions

1. Prepare grill for indirect/medium heat cooking.
2. Remove neck and giblets and rinse chicken inside and out, if desired; pat dry with paper towels. Coat chicken lightly with oil and season with 2 tablespoons dry rub. Set aside (Note: If you prefer a more classic roasted chicken flavor, omit the dry rub and use only kosher salt and black pepper.)
3. Open beer can, pour out about ¼-cup of the beer and make an extra hole in top of the can with church key can opener. Sprinkle the remaining tablespoon of the dry rub inside beer can. Place vertical chicken roaster (such as the Grill Friends™ Chicken Sitter) or beer can in center of cooking grate and “sit” chicken on top of the beer can. The chicken will appear to be “sitting” on the grate.
4. Cook chicken for 1–1½ hours or until the internal temperature registers 165°F in the breast area and 180°F in the thigh. Remove from grill and let rest for 10 minutes before carving.

Note: When removing from grate, be careful not to spill contents of the vertical roaster or beer can, as it will be very hot.

Beer-Basted Pulled Pork Sandwiches

Yields: 12 servings
Cook time: 7 hours Prep time: 20 minutes

Ingredients:

1 bottle (12 ounces) dark beer
1 bottle of KC Masterpiece® Southern-Style Barbecue Sauce, divided
1 cup KC Masterpiece® Southern-Style Barbecue Sauce
1 pork butt (7–8 pounds)
1 tablespoon dark brown sugar

4 teaspoons kosher salt
1/4 ground cumin
1/4 teaspoon black pepper
1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
1/4 teaspoon oregano
3/4 teaspoons chili powder

Instructions

1. Build a charcoal fire for indirect cooking with Kingsford® charcoal by situating the coals on only one side of the grill, leaving the other side void. Add a small aluminum pan to the void side of the grill and fill it halfway with water.

2. In a small bowl, combine the dry rub ingredients. Coat the pork evenly with dry rub, patting gently until the mixture adheres to the meat.

3. When the grill reaches 250°F, place pork butt on the void side of the grill over the water pan, close the lid, and cook over indirect heat for four hours. While the pork is cooking, combine the beer and barbecue sauce in a medium bowl. Cook pork an additional three hours basting the pork every half hour until the internal temperature of the pork reaches 190°F. Continually monitor the grill temperature and add hot charcoal as needed, to maintain the grill temperature of 250°F.

4. Remove the pork butt from the charcoal grill and let it rest for 15 minutes. Pull the cooked meat from the bone and place in a skillet with any remaining marinade and toss. Cook over medium heat for 10 minutes to heat through and keep the mixture moist. To serve, brush on some of the remaining Southern-Stylebarbecue sauce onto the inside of a sandwich roll and stuff with some of the pulled pork mixture.
