Experiment 27.5: Beer Can Chicken - Oven Style. What do you do when you have The Beer of Clams staring at you from the fridge and a 5.5lb organic chicken? Go TSA on it’s ass, that’s what.
Homemade spice mix: black pepper, sea salt, paprika, garlic, basil, cayenne, thyme, parsley, lemon zest, FOC
Invade the chicken inside and out
Pour the top inch of the beer off then key extra holes in. You can definitely do this with a GF beer if that’s your jam. This bird is going to some marrieds down the street who need some food help tonight, super beer-centric people so I knew fun times with Narragansett were in order.
Oven to 350 until juices are clear and skin is all crispy
Note: I actually apologized to the bird during the entire process. What can I say? I felt bad.
