Raichlen's goal is to encourage grillers to have fun and use their imagination, and he presents 74 "offbeat recipes" as starting points. Notable selections include Beer-Can Turkey, which requires a giant 32-ounce can of Foster's to do the job; Welder's Chicken, a stewing hen wrapped in aluminum foil and turned with welder's gloves; Dirty Steaks, cooked right on the coals; and Diabolical Chicken, soaked with spicy French mustard and which Raichlen makes "whenever I'm short on time or fancy ingredients but want to impress the hell out of my guests." There are also recipes for "beerless birds" (Ginger Ale Chicken, Black Cherry Soda Chicken), side dishes, and desserts, as well as info on grilling techniques and equipment.
A chicken straddling a beer can, at the very least, makes a great conversation piece at an outdoor beer bash. Raichlen's most helpful hint? Make sure the beer can is open before putting it on the grill. --Andy Boynton

The majority of the book is beer can chicken and its derivatives. And there are quite a few variations on the theme, almost enough to make you forget that this is mostly a book about poultry on a can full of some sort of liquid. Don't get me wrong, the resulting dishes are varied and spectacular, running the gamut from true American barbecue to Asian, to Indian, to Middle East, etc. - similar to his Barbecue Bible. However, you'd better like poultry if you buy this book. There are some meat, fish, and vegetable dishes (and dessert), but it's mostly poultry on a can.
One plus that the author mentions, and most people will figure out, is that even though it is mostly poultry on a can recipes you don't need to stop there. There are so many rubs, sauces, and marinade recipes in there, you can really be creative and do whatever you like with them. Throw in some good tips here and there and you've got a great book.
Call it 4-4.5 stars, simply because the author's previous barbecue books are true 5 star books that are hard to live up to.
