Smoked Beer Can Chicken

Smoked Beer Can Chicken Recipe
This Smoked Beer Can Chicken takes a whole chicken and slowly smokes it over a can of your favorite beer.

My smoked beer can chicken recipe gets its moisture and flavor from the beer, which infuses the meat during this slow cooking process. This recipe makes use of my delicious lemon-herb marinade, and I’m using parsley for the herb today.

Hope you enjoy this recipe for smoked beer can chicken. Serve it with some potato salad and Cole slaw for a nice weekend party with friends!
