Beer Can Chicken

Have you ever had Beer Can Chicken? Oh my gosh it is amazing. It is the perfect beach or lake vacation food! But of course I can't just give you the recipe...I have to relive our family vacation to Douglas Lake (where I first had and became a fan of Beer Can Chicken).
Jet skis plus...

amazing sunsets on the water plus...

fun family plus...

fishing, boating, tubing, water skiing= a fun summer getaway
Now for the recipe for Beer Can Chicken. It is what it sounds...a whole chicken and a can of beer on a grill. Now don't be afraid if you don't like the taste of beer, I promise it only enhances the flavor of the chicken and makes the chicken so incredibly moist. See picture below.
  • 1 whole 3-4 Pound Chicken, Giblets Removed
  • 1 can Beer (12 Ounce Can, But You Can Drink Half)
  • 3 Tablespoons Olive Oil
  • 1 teaspoon Dried Basil
  • 1 teaspoon Dried Oregano
  • 1 teaspoon Dried Tarragon
  • 1 teaspoon Lemon Pepper Seasoning
  • 1 Tablespoon Seasoned Salt
  • 1 stick Butter
    For detailed instructions on how to prepare the chicken please go here! Anyone else ever had Beer Can Chicken before?

Beer can chicken? I have never heard of it but it does sound pretty good. I don't drink, but I do like the taste alcohol brings to cooking, so I'm sure it's going to be good.

And can I say that I am totally jealous of all this fun you're having? I am!
