  • 1 (4-pound) whole free-range chicken
  • 1 half-full can of beer (any variety)
  • 2 tbsp. olive oil or vegetable oil
  • Kosher salt, to taste
  • 1 tsp. ground black pepper
  • 1 tbsp. paprika
  • 1 tbsp. thyme, oregano or basil
  • 1 tsp. minced garlic
  • 1 tbsp. chili powder
  • 1 tsp. dry mustard
  • 1 tsp. bouillon powder (optional)
  • 1 tbsp. chopped fresh thyme leaves


Preheat your barbecue (or oven) over medium heat (nearly high), to 400°F. Then put oil, ground black pepper, paprika, thyme, garlic, chili powder, mustard and fresh thyme together in a medium bowl. Put aside this seasoning mix in a and continue with the chicken step.

First of all, put the half-full can of beer in the center of your cooking plate.

Then, using cold water under the tap, rinse the chicken properly. Omit the neck and giblet parts from your chicken and pat dry. Make sure that the whole chicken fits over the can of beer with its legs placed on the bottom area, remaining the upright position.

Into the top cavity side of the chicken, sprinkle some seasoning mix that you’ve put aside in advance. While the spices and additions scatter in the can and over the chicken, there may be a kind of boiling up. Don’t worry.

Rub and spread the rest of the seasoning mix onto the whole surface of the chicken.

Now you have a seasoned chicken standing on the can that is in the center of your cooking plate. Place it directly on the grill that you’ve preheated and barbecue the chicken after closing the lid.

When you see that there are no longer pink and unroasted parts over your chicken (this should take about 1.5 hours), and also juices of the end product spreading all over the cooking plate, remove the chicken from the grill. Then remove the beer can from the chicken as well.

Cover the chicken with the help of an aluminum foil and wait for it to rest and find its flavor for approximately 15 minutes.

Slice the chicken and serve with your favorite appetizer, rice, fries or puree. Enjoy the flavor!
