Mitchell’s Beer Can Chicken

Its time for the Super Bowl and that means it time for food and beer. That sounds like a certain classic MST3K episode we know and love as Mitchell. You will need the following to make a meal that is Joe Don Baker approved:

  • 1 whole chicken (4-5 pounds)
  • 12 oz can of a beer of your choice
  • Chicken Spice Rub
  • A Weber Smoker
  • 2-3 chunks of apple wood

Next step for cooking your lazy chicken:

  1. Begin heating up your smoker for slow cooking (275° F)
  2. Place the pan in smoker 3/4 with hot water
  3. Add apple wood
  4. Clean the chicken in and out. Make sure there are not parts that don’t belong.
  5. Drink about half the beer can. (Drink responsibly)
  6. Add beer can into chicken with legs down that it makes a tripod.
  7. Spread rub on chicken.
  8. Place chicken on smoker grill
  9. Leave on smoker for 2-3 hours until throughly cooked.
  10. Remove and let rest for 10 minutes

Now don’t forget those moist towelettes when enjoying!
