This chicken is so moist. It tastes very different depending on the rub you use. A can of pop works equally well.


  • whole chicken
  • can of beer or pop
  • poultry rub


Rub outside of a whole chicken with a prepared rub of your choice. Set chicken on the can of beer and place over indirect heat on the grill. Be tips easily. On the side with heat, place a metal breadpan full of water. Make sure the chicken is on the side without heat or it will burn. Put the lid down and let it cook for about an hour or until a meat thermometer registers around 185 degrees. Take it off the grill and enjoy!
