Beer Infused Chicken

We have always loved beer can chicken. You know, the recipe where you shove an opened beer can up the backside of the whole chicken and cook it standing up. Well we found this really cool gadget on Amazon, and we thought we would share it with you. The Norpro stainless steel vertical roaster, with infuser. I will never cook a whole chicken any other way, again. No more of that sloppy back of the chicken after it has been sitting in its own grease during the cooking process…and the best part, you can infuse it with beer!

Here is what you do.

Fill the infuser with your favorite brew. We used Sam Adams cherry wheat for this one, and you could taste and smell the cherry in the chicken. It was so good.

Install the steaming basket and assemble the brackets.

Lightly oil and season your chicken with your favorite rub. we just used salt and pepper on this one, then stick the chicken on the infuser.

Cook until the  chickens’ internal temperature is 170 deg. F. Let it cool for a bit before carving.

The drip tray catches the juices, so you can baste it during the cooking process. We put another pan under the infuser in case there was some over spillage.  The entire chicken comes out crisp on the outside and so tender on the inside. This infuser is quite sturdy. I would think this could easily hold a 10-12 pound chicken or turkey. This one was about 5.5 pounds.  This by far is one of the best gadgets we have acquired, and the price is not bad either. A quality product for sure.
