HOMEMADE BEER CAN CHICKEN RUB RECIPE

WHAT IS BEER CAN CHICKEN?

Beer Can Chicken (a.k.a. Beer Butt Chicken) is a method of roasting a whole chicken. You position the chicken upright and place the bird over a can of light beer. Then, coat the outside of the bird with a simple spice rub, and cook it either in the oven, or over a grill. The result is a very tender, thoroughly seasoned, savory roast chicken.

WHAT DOES THIS BEER CAN CHICKEN RUB TASTE LIKE?

The beer can chicken seasoning mix is meant to go on a raw chicken as a dry rub, before cooking. It is not meant for consumption on its own. If you were to sample the chicken seasoning blend, you’d get strong notes of garlic, coriander, cumin, and cayenne. You’d also taste some brown sugar which helps add extra crispiness to the roast chicken skin. Cook it all up, and this beer can chicken is bold and savory.
