hello this is my first post, but I attempted to make a beer can chicken in my master-built smoker. It was a total success. I'm not sure if the beer can in the chickens ass really works but I cooked the bird for about 8 hours, it took a lot longer than I thought... I marinaded my chicken with Montreal chicken rub, let it set in the fridge over night, I think the next time I'm going to add beer in the actual marinade. Then I bought a chicken rack from Walmart for a couple of bucks, it seems like it would be impossible to set the chicken vertically without out it falling over. I preheated my smoker to 225 degrees set my chicken in there, shoved a half drank beer can in it and began the smoke. I used hickory wood chips filled up my water bowl with water and coors light beer . I filled up a spray bottle with beer and sprayed it down every hour or so to keep it moist.It took a while to cook but it came out really good had a good beer flavor probably with the help of spraying it down I achieved that beer flavor. The skin was a little tough but cooking a bird for that long I'm sure it's normal the meat was moist and great flavor!
