I know most of us do some grilling in the winter time but it pales in comparison to how much grilling gets done in the spring and summer! With the first day of spring right around the corner, it’s time to start doing some spring cleaning of our grills and dream about the yumminess that they soon will be producing!

A while back, I tested out Cave Tool’s Beer Can Chicken Roaster and not too long ago, I decided to give it another test but this time on a standard charcoal grill instead of the gas grill I have. Since I don’t own a charcoal grill (I know, I know.. don’t hate on me for that), I chose to call in some help from a friend of mine who is an amazing cook and grill master with the only request being that I could be the recipient of the final product.

One of the biggest challenges with a beer can chicken is stabilizing it. Let’s face it – while a beer may be refreshing, it doesn’t make for the best prop for a 5 or 6-pound clucker not to mention the chemicals they can give off once heated up. The Beer Can Chicken Roaster from Cave Tools solves that issue by providing a stainless steel canister on a sturdy base with a deep drip tray to prevent any of the juices from getting in your grill or risking flareups.

Another great feature of Cave Tool’s Beer Can Chicken Roaster are the 4 prongs where you can roast corn or potatoes while the chicken is grilling and it’s dishwasher safe so cleanup is a breeze! You’re not limited to only using the grill either – this roaster can be used in a smoker or the oven as well and as with all of their products, it comes with a lifetime guarantee.

The chicken that we used was a huge bird – coming in at around 7 pounds and there were zero issues with the roaster supporting its weight. It turned out so juicy and the skin was a beautiful, crispy brown… sadly our hunger took control and we completely forgot to take an after picture. Sounds like we need to stage a re-do, doesn’t it?

I’d be rude if I didn’t tip my hat and say thanks to my amazing chef friend who willingly helped me test this product out on his charcoal grill!
