McFadden Farm Best Way to Cook Chicken

( Customer Submission - Thanks Bill!)

Wash the bird or birds, dry it off with paper towel
Lightly oil all over.
 Place 1.5 tspoons McFadden Farm Grilling Herbs into the insides.      
Rub the McFadden Farm Grilling Herbs all over the bird.
-BBQ smoke chips- soak 2 good handfuls into a bowl with a can of beer -- soak for an hour.
-Beer can- use a 1/2 a can of beer, pour in 1 spoonful of the McFadden Farm Grilling Herbs.
-Charcoal- the outside areas of the BBQ, leaving the center to catch the chicken drippings. Put a pan under the chicken.
The chicken acts like a tripod- with the can of beer as the main post.  The legs act as the other 2.  Stores sell a stand that holds the chicken- so it doesn't fall over- it has before on me- but you can't tell, since you don't lift the lid.  They do sell a stand for 2 chickens that I use- works great!
Put the chicken on the beer can in the center of the grill, pulling the legs out to act as a tripod.
Cook for 1 hour 10 min.  If cooking 2 or three - cook for 1 hr 30 min.
Take chicken off the grill, twist and pull the can out, let bird sit for 10 minutes.
