This simple cooking rack gives you a moist and delicious grilled bird.
Beer-can chicken has been one of the top trends in BBQ since grill guru Steven Raichlen declared that the tastiest poultry he ever ate was prepared using this technique. Roasting a whole chicken vertically atop a half-full can of steaming beer imparts juiciness while the skin browns beautifully. This rack simplifies the whole process. A holder keeps the beer can (or included canister) in place. A drip pan collects the juices, preventing flare-ups from the grill. Thanks to the canister, you can choose to substitute another liquid — perhaps wine, orange juice or sake — for the beer. Plus, unlike cooking a chicken directly on the grill, in which you have to constantly flip the bird, this method is relatively pain-free.
