Today was a perfect day to test some recipes for “Relish Magazine”. Groceries were shopped for yesterday, so this morning I got an early start. I tested 5 possible recipes for future publication that might or might not make the magazine. One of the most fun recipes was called “Drunken Chicken”. You might already be familiar with the “Beer Can” in the “Chicken” method of cooking a whole chicken on the grill? Basically you buy a whole chicken, a can of beer, gather some herbs and olive oil, heat up the charcoal grill and a couple of hours later you have one of the juiciest grilled/roasted chickens I have ever tasted. There were a few comical adjustments that I had to make to get the standing up-right chicken on my grill with “a lid” on it so that it would cook throughout, but you can see my “garbage can” lid in the photos. At tasting this afternoon the Relish crew gave the finished, crispy-skin chicken a #3+ which is very, very good. I bought an organic chicken from a local market and I really think the flavor was finer than the full of steroids chickens that are found in most supermarkets. Everyone agreed. Look for this recipe in an upcoming issue of Relish found at relishmag.com

I bet this chicken tastes wonderful … however, for some reason I feel a little sorry for him … er, uh … her.
I guess if you’re gonna go, may as well go with a belly full of German beer. 🙂
Ooooo … I wonder how it would taste using a hefeweizen. Das smecht gut. Ya?
