Why I Love This Recipe
Ingredients You'll Need
1 whole chicken (about 4 pounds)
1 tablespoon olive oil
1/4 cup McCormick® Grill Mates® Montreal Chicken Seasoning , divided
OR McCormick® Grill Mates® Roasted Garlic & Herb Seasoning , divided
1 can (12 ounces) beer
Preheat gas grill to medium heat (325°F to 350°F)*. Remove giblets from chicken cavity. Rinse chicken inside and out; pat dry. Rub chicken with oil. Rub cavity with 1 tablespoon of the Chicken Seasoning. Sprinkle remaining Chicken Seasoning evenly over surface of chicken.
Remove about 2 ounces beer and poke 2 holes in top of can. Hold chicken upright (legs pointing down) and insert opened beer can into cavity. Stand chicken in upright position in center of grill. Position legs to best support chicken (similar to a tripod). Close lid.
Grill 55 minutes or until chicken is cooked through. Remove chicken from can before serving.
