Beer Can Blunder !!

Jimbosox04 | May 28, 2007 08:37 PM

Today I was out at the grill thinking, Gee what can I grill today ? When it came to mind that I haven't served up any beer can chicken in a while and it is always amusing to watch. As I was preparing the chicken of course I needed a little beer off of the can. I drank of the 1/2 that was rightfully mine and started to fill the can with spices when WHALLAH !!! DARN, HECK !!! The wife looks and says "What's the matter?" I said COOR'S LIGHT !!! She asked "Thats the problem?". I repied "Well it might be". It didnt occur to me that what Coor's Light has developed as the "Frost Brewed Liner" may or may not be a problem, I don't know what it is nor do I want to find out with an aftertaste or fire on the bird. I immediately turned it into Soda Can Chicken, what a downgrade for manhood but what could I do ? Can anyone comment on what this Frost Brewed liner is made of and Is it high heat stable? my guess is that it isn't and not worth the risk, and yes I know, shouldn't be using light beer for this to begin with but the amount of Chow I cook on the grill each year I need LIGHT beer.
