Montreal Chicken on the Char-Broil Big Easy

Montreal Chicken on the Char-Broil Big Easy

Mmmmmm. Tasty, moist, tender chicken. Montreal seasoning combines many of my favorite things: garlic, coriander, black pepper, cayenne pepper, dill seed, and salt. I made my Montreal chicken on the Char-Broil Big Easy since it makes perfect chicken every single time.

  • Fire up your Big Easy.
  • Rinse the chicken and pat dry.
  • Lightly brush the chicken with olive oil.
  • Generously sprinkle the chicken with the seasoning.
  • If opting to make beer can chicken open the can and drain (er... drink) about 1/4th of the beer. Add a heaping teaspoon of seasoning to the beer. Insert beer can into the bottom of the chicken.
  • Place chicken into the basket and insert into the Big Easy.
  • Cook for 15 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 (if using) and carving.


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.
