Root Beer-Can Chicken


Don’t like to cook with Beer try Root Beer-Can Chicken.  The recipe is basically the same as Beer-Can Chicken but using Root Beer. Try it next time you are grilling.





  • 1 1/2 teaspoons paprika
  • 1 teaspoon brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon Cayenne pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon chili powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 2 (12-ounce) cans root beer (or beer)
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 2 teaspoons cider vinegar
  • 1 (3 1/2-pound) whole chicken, skinned



For this you do indirect grilling, heating one side to medium.

Combine first 6 ingredients and 1/4 teaspoon salt in a small bowl.

To make sauce for basting; pour 18 ounces into a small saucepan over medium bring to a boil. Leave the remaining root beer in the can and set aside. Cook about 20 minutes until reduced to 1/3 cup. Add remaining 1/4 teaspoon salt, butter, and vinegar, stirring until smooth.

Rub the first 6 ingredient mixture evenly over chicken. Put opened root beer can into cavity. Place chicken on unheated side of grill. Spread legs out to form a tripod to support the chicken. Grill for about 1 hour and 30 minutes or until a meat thermometer registers 160° baste chicken every 20 minutes with sauce.

Carefully remove chicken and can from grill; let it sit for 10 minutes. Carve chicken.
