Apple Ale Beer Can Chicken on the Char-Broil Big Easy
I use the
Char-Broil folding chicken roaster
to hold the beer or soda cans securely. If the beer you're using is only available in a bottle, just empty the contents into an empty beer or soda can.

Rinse the chicken and pat dry.
Combine the olive oil and balsamic vinegar and brush onto the chicken.
Combine the taragon, salt and pepper. Reserve 1 teaspoon of the mixture. Sprinkle the remaining seasoning onto the chicken.
Add reserved spice mixture to the beer (take a few drinks first to make room) and insert into the chicken.
Place chicken into the basket and insert into the Big Easy.
Cook for 15-20 minutes per pound or until the chicken has hit 165 F as measured in several locations.
Let rest 15 minutes before removing the beer can and carving.
