Barbecuing is great fun; don't let the typical British weather put you off. No barbecue is complete without a chicken dish of some sort, and Beer Can Chicken is dead simple. A beer can be stuffed inside a chicken with lots of spices and cooked over a covered barbecue to give you delicious succulent chicken. But, of course, you can just as easily cook this in your oven if you don't have a covered barbecue.

Ingredients
 

  • 2 kg chicken
  • 1 tbsp dark brown sugar
  • 1 tbsp smoked paprika
  • 1 tbsp sea salt to taste
  • 1 tsp freshly milled black pepper
  • 1 tsp dried garlic powder
  • 1 tsp celery salt
  • 350 ml can lager

Instructions
 

  • Open the can, tip away half the beer, or save it for later. Then, with an old-fashioned can opener, make two extra holes, put in two teaspoons of the spice mix, and gently mix it.
  • Now comes the tricky part, place the can in the centre of a foil tray and place the open end of the chicken over the can and this is the most important part, pull the legs out, so you form a nice little tripod to stop the chicken falling over.
  • Next, take the rest of the spice rub and gently rub it over the chicken.
  • Carefully place the chicken and foil onto the bar-b-que and close the lid.
  • A gas one with a lid is ideal because it's easy to control the temperature, but any barbecue will work as long as you can cover the chicken; any barbecue will work.
  • Cook for 2 hours and 30 minutes at a temperature of 180° C, 350° F.
  • Every so often, baste the chicken with its own juice.
