1
1 (7 ounces) can chipotles in adobe sauce
1/3 cup lime juice
1 teaspoon cinnamon
Salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste
1 (12 ounces) can beer, preferably a Mexican brand


  1. Preheat grill to medium-high heat. 
  2. Process chipotles, lime juice, cinnamon, salt and pepper in a blender or food processor until pureed. Rub chicken with puree.
  3. When preheated, push coals to one side of grill, using tongs.  Set a disposable metal pan next to coals to catch drips.  Replace grill rack.  (Or, if using a gas grill, turn off burners on one half of the grill, and place drip pan underneath grill rack.) 
  4. Open beer.  Press chicken’s abdominal cavity over beer can.  Tuck wings behind bird and stand bird on grill, over drip pan.  Close lid and open vents to maintain fire.  Cook bird 1 ¼ to 1 ½ hours, rotating halfway through cooking, until juices run clear and a meat thermometer inserted in the center of breast registers 170°F.
  5. Remove beer can carefully and let chicken rest on a cutting board 10 minutes before carving and serving. 

Tip

Before you get started, make sure that sitting on the beer can, the chicken is tall enough to be in an upright position with the grill lid down.
