ingredients

Step one: Rub

In a bowl, combine salt, 1 tablespoon thyme, garlic powder, onion powder and black pepper. Remove neck and giblets from chicken and discard. Rub chicken lightly with oil, then rub inside and out with spice rub. Let chicken sit at room temperature 7 to 10 minutes while grill heats up.

Step two: Pop

Open beer can and remove enough beer so can is half full. Put 2 sprigs fresh thyme in beer can. Hold bottom chicken cavity above can of beer and slide over can. Bend wings back behind chicken and prop legs in front of can, supporting chicken. Chicken should look like it’s sitting on beer can. Place chicken inside heat-proof pan to catch drippings.

ingredients

Step three: Grill

Heat grill to high. Place pan with chicken on grill. Close top of grill so it's like an oven and turn heat down to medium low. Grill until meat thermometer inserted into thickest part of thigh registers 170°F, about 1 ½ to 1 ¾ hours.

ingredients

Step four: Serve

When chicken is done, remove from grill and let rest 10 minutes. Using tongs, grab chicken under wings, remove from beer can and place on carving board. Carve and serve.

TA DA!
