Beer can chicken

Beer can Chicken

It’s been a trend and a myth for over 20 years. People have had all kinds of opinions about it.This is my take on a “woke” 2022 version of beer can chicken with a touch of Morrison.

The sauce

The rub


  • Add around 5 tablespoons of olive oil to a small bowl.
  • Add in a tablespoon of chipotle in adobo sauce and mix it up.
  • Brush the oil over your chicken and cover it completely along with the inside.
  • Create the PitmasterX BBQ rub and cover it generous along with the inside as well.
  • Warm up a beer as much as you can without cooking it.
  • Fill up the can with a beer or anything because it doesn’t really matter but its fun!
  • Set the chicken on top and set your Burnhard smoker to a temp of 180°C/365°F.
  • Smoke your chicken until the core hits 75°C/167°F
  • Create a buffalo hot sauce by adding all the ingredients for the sauce into a pan.
  • Stir it all up and let reduce and let it cool down.
  • Poor the sauce over the chicken and you are done!
