How to make your own beer-can chicken
Open a can of your favorite beer, drink half, then insert the can into the ring-shaped holder. Instead of beer, you can also use soda, wine, sake, orange juice, cider or any other liquid.
Season the bird with a spice rub or herb mix.
Hold the chicken by the wings and lower it onto the roaster so that the canister goes into the body cavity. Pull the legs forward so that the chicken stays upright.
Grill by indirect heat method, or smoke for 1 to 1.5 hours. For best results, use an instant-read thermometer after 1 hour to check for doneness. When done, remove from canister and enjoy.
- The Steven Raichlen Beer Can Chicken Rack includes a stainless steel canister, stainless steel rack and stainles steel drip tray. All parts are dishwasher safe. Please note: Parts will get hot during cooking. Handle with care.
Absolutely the best way to cook chicken
Makes the cooking process easier and virtually fail proof
-- Steaming beer gently flavors the chicken and keeps it moist.
-- Upright position of the bird helps crisp up the skin and melt out the fat.
-- Square base stabilizes the chicken, keeps it from tipping, and catches dripping fat to prevent flare-ups.
-- Flavorful juices dripping on the tray can be saved for sauce.
-- The wow power is off the chart. The sight of an upright chicken roasting on a beer can is guaranteed to make eyes pop, jaws drop, and mouths water.
Steven Raichlen wrote the book on beer can chicken - literally. This long-time customer favorite has contributed to hundreds of delicious meals over the years. The design of this rack makes the process easier and virtually fail proof. Square construction gives you greater stability. The bird won't tip and beer won't spill. All stainless steel, so it will not react with food. Metal holder adapts to both beer cans and the included unique stainless steel canister, which you can fill with wine, fruit juice, or other flavorful liquid. Metal drip pan collects meat juices for sauces and prevents dripping fat from erupting into flare-ups. Use in the oven or on the grill. The Steven Raichlen Best of Barbecue Beer-Can Chicken Roaster Rack is also dishwasher safe for easy clean-up.

This pan is a truly well made and well thought out solution to a problem. Using a beer can to roast chicken has several drawbacks and complications. The chicken is unstable and can easily tip over. A pan is still required to catch drippings and fat (even in an outdoor grill). You also might not like the idea of an aluminum beer can being inserted into your food and exposed to high heat. Recent studies have linked aluminum consumption to Alzheimer's Disease, for example, and who knows what chemicals or fumes are entering your chicken from the dyes and the can itself as your meal cooks?
With this pan, all those issues are no longer issues. A sturdy stainless steel construction ensures that your bird is held upright and sturdy with less risk of ruining your meal. The rack holds the can and bird in place very nicely. I was surprised just how heftily this pan was built. You can tell where your money went, as the pan is not at all cheap or flimsy as you might fear.
The pan comes with a stainless steel (non-reactive) canister to replace that questionable beer can you were thinking of shoving up your chicken's rear. Another bonus of using the canister is that you don't need to have a beer can handy just to make dinner (although I'm sure that isn't a problem for many people, but for those that don't drink or don't drink on a regular basis, it's a nice plus). Not to mention you can use any liquid you like: including wine, which is very nice indeed. Acids like wine or citrus actually react with aluminum to produce funky flavors (and also help leach out aluminum from the metal), but stainless steel is non-reactive and gives you peace of mind that your food will taste great and that you wont develop some strange disease.
There's also a heavy gauge drip pan to catch all that rendered fat and drippings. This is nice if you plan to make gravy, but equally nice to avoid needing a cookie sheet and preventing flare ups. The pan is very small, which is great for small grills and less clean up, but it's just the right size for most chickens. If you're cooking in an oven, you might wish you might still wish to place a small sheet of foil or a cookie sheet underneath the chicken, just in case your bird is a little on the large side and any drippings miss the pan. I've had no problems so far, though. The pan has two nice sturdy handles for easy insertion and retrieval. It even has a little pour spout designed to make emptying the drippings easier.
Clean up is also very easy. In fact, it is much, much easier than traditional chicken roasting pans (the kind with the slits that let the dripping run off into the bottom and the grease bakes right on). The small size limits evaporation of the juices (they pool up more, so less surface area) so they don't burn onto the pan and make clean up a real pain (not to mention ruin your gravy-making fodder). It's also much easier to fit in my sink to soak. As long as you soak it right after you cook, it's easy to clean and is dishwasher safe anyway.
The only complaint I have is that there were no recipes included in the box. Normally I would just ignore these anyway, but since the manufacturer is a BBQ guru, you'd think he'd at least throw in a couple of recipes for rubs and some suggestions. Eh, no big loss, though. Recipes are freely available online. I just used my pan for tonight's dinner and it came out fantastic. I prepared "Saint Nino's Chicken" (a Georgian recipe in honor of the current crisis) that I printed off Food Network's website. It was one of the moistest chickens I've ever had and the flavors were incredible and proliferated throughout the meat. It reminded me of the results of using a flavor injector (another new toy I recently acquired).
I highly recommend this pan, as I checked out all the other offerings and they all either seemed flimsy, unstable, cheap, or (in the case of the Weber) used a nonstick coating. I'm quite happy with my decision to buy this pan, and I'm sure you'll be satisfied too.
With this, making beer chicken is so much more pleasurable. I can use any beer I want because I can just open a bottle of beer in my fridge, and pour some into the metal canister. I also have options because almost every good/delicious micro-brew beer comes in bottles so with this, i can just open up a fine bottle of beer and pour ~5 oz of it. Cleaning was a cinch. First time I used it, there was brown gunk all over it from the chicken fat and stuff and I was like "oh no". To my surprise, all of the nasty gunk simply came off by just running this under hot running water. Before getting this device, I was using Budweiser beer to make beer chicken because it comes in a can. First time I used this product, I poured Sierra Nevada's extra IPA into the metal canister. It was literally the best beer chicken I've ever had because I can actually taste/smell the IPA beer infused into the chicken meat.
Before I used to use a regular ol' beer can. The great thing about this product is the can has a removable top. Why is this great? Not only can you put beer in there, you can put all sorts of herbs and spices with it, which would be difficult to do in a regular can.
The drip tray is convenient and makes cleaning up after a roasting easy.
The quality of the materials is quite sturdy. I'm not a steel expert so I can't say if this is good quality steel or whatever. However, everything feels sturdy, and was able to hold and support a 4.5 pound chicken without issue.
