Beer Butt Chicken

This makes the most moist delicious chicken!! You can also cook it in the oven.


* 1 stick butter, cut into chunks
* 3-4 cloves garlic
* Chicken seasoning (I use Montreal Chicken Seasoning)
*kosher or sea salt and pepper to rub on chicken
* 1 (12 fluid ounce) can beer
* 1 (4 pound) whole chicken


1. Preheat an outdoor grill for low heat.
2.Rub the chicken with the salt and seasonings mixture.
3. use most of the garlic and butter and Slide chunks of butter and whole cloves of garlic under the skin.
4. Melt about 3 tbs of the butter with 2 more cloves of garlic and use to baste the chicken while it cooks.
5. Discard 1/2 the beer, leaving the remainder in the can. Place can on a disposable baking sheet. Set chicken on can, inserting can into the cavity of the chicken.

Place baking sheet with beer and chicken on the prepared grill. Cook over low heat for about 3 hours, or until internal temperature of chicken reaches 180 degrees F (80 degrees C).
