My first attempt at Beer Can Chicken on the SF.

I already had a beer can set from Sahara, my gas BBQ

I bought a free range large chicken.

Covered in sea salt and wrapped in cling film, then in fridge for 2 hours
Washed off.

Mixed together
2 teaspoons of onion powder (didn't have any so used about half a spoon of garlic powder - all we had)
1 teaspoon of light brown sugar
1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil
Brushed all over chicken

BBQ at 440F with hickory pellets
Probe set to 160F

Left to stand for about 10 - 15 mins

Tasted awesome

Oh and I got to drink the remaining beer! Nice!

The taste was superb compared to doing it on the gas BBQ. I am slowly becoming totally converted!

Before, after and beer photos.

Looks awesome! I’ve always been very pleased with the flavor of everything off the Smokefire as well.

Looks good. I love the chicken I’ve made on SmokeFire.
