Sprite Can Chickens

Had the father in law and his lady over to the house on tuesday. He wanted Ribs and with the time crunch I told him I'd do some Beer Can Chickens. Didn't have any (don't drink anymore) beer so I used sprite cans.

Got 2 birds, rubbed 1 down with Wolfe Rub Original
Rubbed the other down with a local rub Smoke n Guns HOT



Threw down some Royal Oak briquettes, about 15 per side. Soaked some apple wood chips and threw those on either side.



About half way through. Pulled Chickens at 180*, thigh temp.


Pulled the birds at 180* in the thigh as mentioned before. Chickens always turn out moist, we like to do these at least a couple times a month!

really didn't add to anything. I've found that to be true with the beer cans. I was going to just add water to a soda can but the wife said to do sprite so I was like whatever. Im guessin the fluid keeps the moisture in but does not impart any flavor.

now awhile back nick did some bcc and stuffed the neck with lemons and oranges I believe. that might be something to do with a lemon lime soda.

Once I can get the recipe to take 1 - 1lb bottle per shoulder that's when I'll be rich!

The last one I did, I just put the bird on the rack with no can. The idea was to let the smoke get at it on both sides. It worked good also.

That will add a little flavor to it, but I did it mainly to help hold the heat and moister inside the birds.

Very nice indeed! I agree with you SC it doesn't add much flavor, unless you use a very mild rub and a heavy beer or fruit nectar. It does make for one moist chicken though
