This is a full chicken roasted in a weber with a can of beer – it makes it moist and delicious – as well as keeping the full chicken up right!
- Whole chicken, at room temperature
- Handful of rosemary and thyme
- Lots of salt, pepper and olive oil
- 1⁄2 or full can of beer
Rub chicken with olive oil, herbs, salt and pepper, lemon zest and juice.
Place the can into the cavity of the chicken. Put drip tray at the bottom of the weber between the coals dividers.
Place your chicken on the grill and close the lid – ENSURE bottom and top 'vents' are open – if closed it will smother the coals. Do not open lid.
After 80 minutes remove chicken from weber and allow to rest for a few minutes before carving. Use the chicken fat that falls onto the drip tray to make a gravy if you have the time.
