Anyway, I read about this recipe in our local paper and thought, what could be more suited to an Aussie BBQ than
A whole chicken is seasoned and slowly cooked on the barbecue. The cooking method is a bit unorthodox, but the end result is moist, flavourful and amazing.
2 tablespoons garlic salt
2 tablespoons paprika
salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste
Olive oil spray
1 can beer
1 whole chicken
1. Preheat barbecue for low heat.
2. In a small frying pan, lightly spray oil. Mix in 1 tablespoon garlic salt, 1 tablespoon paprika, salt and pepper.
3. Discard 1/2 the beer, leaving the remainder in the can. Add remaining garlic salt, paprika, and desired amount of salt and pepper to beer can. Place can on a disposable baking tray. Spray beer can with oil. Set chicken on beer can, inserting can into the cavity of the chicken. Baste chicken with olive oil spray.
4. Place baking tray with beer and chicken on the prepared barbecue. Cook over low heat for about 3 hours, or until internal temperature of chicken reaches 80 C.
