Ingredients

  • ½ Can Coca-Cola In The Can
  • Johnny's Seasoning Salt
  • BBQ Sauce
  • Whole Chicken
  • ¼-1/2 Small Size Potato
  • Beer Can Chicken Holder
  • Optional Tray For Under Chicken

Instructions

  1. Fire up your grill and let it warm up to a cooking temperature.
  2. Prep the chicken to be grilled, remove the chicken innards.
  3. *If you want you can use these innards to make soup or dog food*
  4. Place your potato into the neck of the chicken to keep the juices sealed into it while it cooks.
  5. Pour out ½ the can of Coca Cola into a glass to enjoy or to set aside to mix into bbq sauce.
  6. Place the ½ full Coca Cola can into the Beer Can Chicken Holder.
  7. Position the whole chicken onto the beer can rack.
  8. Season with the seasoning of your choice we did season all on ours
  9. I suggest placing a baking sheet under the chicken we started out with no tray and the chicken bottom kept catching the flame of the grill.
  10. Place the chicken on the rack on the grill and allow it to cook.
  11. Use a meat thermometer to verify the meat is cooked all the way through.
  12. Once almost your chicken is almost done cooking use a basting brush to coat the chicken in bbq sauce, to add more flavor you can mix in some Coca Cola with the bbq sauce.
  13. Also to cook a bit longer to allow the bbq sauce to caramelize and flavor the chicken more.
