Kamado Joe Beer Can Chicken
The Kamado Joe Chicken Stand is the perfect accessory for cooking chicken on a grill or indoor oven. If you haven’t tried cooking a beer-can style chicken, you really should! http://www.authenteak.com/kamado-joe-chicken-stand.html
Kamado Joe Beer Can Chicken:
What you need:
1 whole chicken, rinsed and patted dry
2 stick of butter, melted
1 teaspoon of your favorite bbq rub
1/4 to 1/2 tsp granulated garlic
1/4 to 1/2 tsp onion powder
Additional BBQ rub
Bunch of fresh thyme
4 to 6 cloves of mashed garlic
Fire up your grill for indirect cooking at 350°F. While the grill is warming up, melt the butter and add the BBQ rub and seasonings. Once the butter is melted and the seasoning are mixed in, use a meat injector to inject the butter and seasoning solution under the skin of the chicken all over (not into the meat.) Once the butter mix has been injected under the skin, coat the rest of the outside of the chicken with a healthy dose of BBQ rub.
In your beer can chicken stand, add the garlic and thyme and top it off with beer. Put the stand on the grill to let the beer preheat for 10 to 15 minutes. Put the chicken on the stand and cook it until the breast meat reaches 160-165 degrees internally. Remove it from the grill, let it rest for 10-15 minutes and serve it!
