  3. Generously season both chickens; front, back & sides- making sure the entire chicken is coated with Spice Union Barbeque Spice Rub.

  4. Slide a half full can of beer into the cavity of each chicken.

  5. Using the beer cans as ‘stands’, place the chickens standing up on the indirect heat side of the grill.

  6. Cook the chicken until the thighs reach an internal temperature of 165°F (about 60-70 minutes).

  7. Remove the chickens from the grill and let them rest for 5 minutes before cutting.
