Beer Can Wolfe Chicken

Got my bottle of Wolfe rub Saturday (thanks Larry) and I have to admit I was not thrilled with the taste right out of the bottle. The heat was just right and the spices were great but I've never used a rub with the flavoring that the Wolfe rub has (fruity, cinnamon-y). My wife tried it and she liked it. So anyway I thought I'd do some beer can chicken and use the wolfe rub.


Rubbed under the skin, inside the cavity and all over generously with Wolfe Rub


Shall we dance??

Enjoyed some Samuel Adams specialty brew...Anyone see these around your neighborhood???

They come 4 to a box and are brewed similar to the old colonial days;
Taditional Ginger Honey Ale
George Washington Porter
James Madison Dark Wheat Ale
1790 Root Beer Brew
Very good, especially for special occasions


She's ready for the grill


Midway Point
Forming a nice deep red color, smells great


Nice rich color, the skin was crispy but not burnt.
180* ready to be pulled off

The chicken was extremely moist, the flavor was outstanding. I will say now that I've used the Wolfe Rub with a cook, I will use it more often. Great rub Larry!

Used Royal Oak briquettes, about 15 per side. Added apple wood chips to the briquettes. The charcoal lasted the entire cooking session (just over an hour)

Will definately do more in the future.

If they taste good.... I'll just pretend I bought them to drink in a nice restaurant. That usually triples the price.

Thanks Dan, I'm glad you enjoyed it! That's one of the finest beer can chickens I've seen in a long time!

What really makes it look good is that it's not overly dark. Great job. =D>
