Beer Can Chicken

Barbecue and beer are a match made in heaven. Using Stubb’s Chicken Rub brings even more flavor to a ‘traditional’ beer can chicken recipe. NOTE: Beer can chicken holders can be found with the grilling accessories at most major retailers. If you choose to prepare without a chicken holder, slide the chicken directly over the beer can, but take caution when balancing it on the grill, as it will more prone to tipping over.

  • 4 tablespoons Stubb’s Chicken Rub
  • 1 can of beer
  • 1 beer can chicken holder (optional)


  • Prepare your grill for indirect hot heat cooking at 350°.

  • Open the beer and pour about 1/4 of it into a glass.
