Since I don't drink beer.


Rub chicken as usual for bbq. Use favorite rub. Start coals. Drink pepsi (or diet cherry vanilla dr pepper). Cut top of can off. Dice lemon, put in can, top off with water.

Shove can up chicken's ass. Be sure chicken is dead first, unless you're some kind of prevert.

Place soaked wood chips on coals. Place grate on grill. Place chicken, can side down, on grill, using legs to make tripod.

Add soaked chips every half hour. Meanwhile, post on HuSi so you don't hover over the grill.


Tomorrow I'm driving from Cedar City UT to Hanford CA for 4th of July and a family reunion. Driving back Monday. Will smoke/bbq ribs (not mine, the pig's) on Tuesday. Yummers.

This recipe does not require beer drinking. by ammoniacal (2.00 / 0) #1 Fri Jul 02, 2010 at 08:47:14 PM EST
So why the substitution?

That it takes quite a long time to burn off all alcohol when using it in cooking. Unless this recipe involves baking for literally hours, the result has alcohol in it.

Perhaps wiredog prefers not to consume any alcohol if he can avoid it.

It takes a few hours by lm (2.00 / 0) #5 Sat Jul 03, 2010 at 02:11:29 PM EST
I'm pretty certain that there's no measurable amount of alcohol left by the time the chicken is done.

But, unless I'm mistaken, that's mostly besides the point.

My first guess would be convenience by lm (4.00 / 1) #7 Sat Jul 03, 2010 at 02:14:24 PM EST
If there are no cans of beer in the house then one has to make an extra trip to the store.

That would be my primary consideration, but I'm sure there are other considerations as well.

yes! by dev trash (2.00 / 0) #9 Sat Jul 03, 2010 at 11:03:47 PM EST
In PA, it'd be more economical to get a case, and a case of beer just for one can is silly.

Only drink half the can and add spices before cooking the chicken with said can inserted up it's butt.
