Recipe Info

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


Step 1

Rub chicken with olive oil, herbs, salt and pepper, lemon zest and juice.

Step 2

Place the can into the cavity of the chicken. Put drip tray at the bottom of the weber between the coals dividers.

Step 3

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.

Step 4

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.
