    I have one that folds up and one that is heavier duty and doesn't fold up. The heavier one is more stable and easier to use. I don't use them very often as I prefer to spatchcock my chickens. Mine were gifts. I like to buy local so I shop for things like that at my locally owned non-box hardware store.

    I got my beer can chicken stand at Big Lots.  I think it was about $2.50.  I've smoked chickens on beer cans, but found a way to do it, differently, in Dr. BBQ's cookbook.  You dump the beer in a disposable pan, set the chicken on the stand, put it in the pan, and smoke away.  It was better than when I did them on the can.

    I got mine from Job lot for the same $2.50. I also have the Weber Style Poultry Infusion Roaster. For some odd reason I use the cheap $2.50 beer can holder lol.

    After I get his attention by sticking that beer can up his butt?  He obediently stands up all by himself!


    One less thing to clean and store.

    Good luck and good smoking.
