Smokehouse Beer Can Chicken
1 - 3 lb chicken 1.5 kg
1/2 cup Knorr Smokehouse Mesquite Marinade 125 mL
1 can premium beer
4 tbsp Hellmann's Smokey Bacon & Tomato Mayonnaise 60 mL
1 lime, cut into wedges
Wash chicken, including cavity, with cold water;
pat with paper towel to dry.
Place in a large bowl and cover inside and out with 1/4 cup (50 mL) Knorr
Smokehouse Mesquite Marinade. Let marinate at room temperature for 30
minutes or covered, in refrigerator, overnight.
Preheat one side of the grill on high heat. Place lid down. Wash outside of
beer can; dry. Pour out 1/4 of the beer from the can. Place can on a flat
surface and insert chicken onto can, so can is wedged into the cavity and
chicken stands upright. (Use legs to steady chicken if needed.) Tuck in wing
tips to prevent burning. Discard any marinade left in bowl.
Stand chicken on side of grill where heat is off; close cover. After 30 minutes,
brush chicken occasionally using remaining 1/4 cup marinade. If any part of
the chicken starts to over darken, cover with foil. Grill chicken for one hour or
until juices run clear.
Let chicken rest for 10 minutes before removing from can. Serve, garnished
with Hellman's Smokey Bacon & Tomato Mayonnaise and lime wedges.
