Beer Can Chicken - is it safe?

daily_unadventures | May 29, 2007 05:41 PM

Okay, I have been wanting to make "beer butt chicken" for awhile but my boyfriend says he won't eat it because of all the dyes on the aluminum cans and the toxic chemicals they will produce when heated.

Is there any truth to this? Has anyone come up with a solution that would produce the same result but not use an actual beer can? I was thinking a really clean tin can with beer in it... But I really don't know.

Any thoughts?
