You’re loving your Big Green Egg Grill and perfecting it’s use each and every day. This powerful grill lets you deliver culinary masterpieces like seasoned chefs. Like us your always looking for something new to do with this amazing machine, so we thought we’d share with you a favorite of ours…..Beer Can Chicken.
Beer can chicken on the Big Green Egg is a celebrated dish, but we put a little spin on it. Our secret twist: Radler beer. The refreshing sweet citrus taste of the Radler makes this beer produce a unique and memorable treat! While the chicken is cooking, the beer in the can will evaporate keeping the chicken tender and juicy on the inside. So here you go:
For the chicken:
For the rub:
Ignite the Big Green Egg. Put the convEGGtor into the EGG with its legs facing upwards, close the lid and heat up to 180°C. Meanwhile mix together all the ingredients for the rub. Carefully lift the skin away from the chicken meat by sliding your fingers under the skin and moving them from left to right. Spread some of the rub between the skin and the meat and rub it in well. Also spread some rub into the cavity of the chicken. Thoroughly rub olive oil into the skin, then spread rub onto the skin until it is completely covered.
Fix the half-full can of Radler into the Beer Can Chicken Roaster and put the chicken over it. Put in the Round Drip Pan and place in the middle of the convEGGtor. Close the lid of the EGG and cook the beer can chicken for 60 to 70 minutes.
Remove the Drip Pan from the EGG using the EGGmitt and grate some lime and lemon zest over the bird before serving.
