Beer Can Chicken

RUBulldog | Nov 11, 2004 03:35 AM

I'm want to try this great way of grilling.

I have a charcoal Weber. They say indirect heat. Should I split the grill in half and put charcoal on one side and the chicken on the other? I've had good luck grill ribs and tri tip this way.

Or should I put the chicken in the middle, and charcoal around the outer edges?

Can I put some wood chips on top of the charcoals? If so what kind of wood? Hickory? Mesquite?

Also should I brush the chicken with barbeque sauce at any time during the grilling? I've put half a can of beer into regular store self barbque sauce and it gives everthing more of a kick.
