Method

Prepare your Weber Kettle for indirect cooking at a medium heat (between 190-220C) placing an aluminium drip tray in the centre of your BBQ, with the Charcoal baskets either side.

Once the briquettes are completely ashed over and grey in colour, combine all glaze ingredients in a small saucepan and place over heat, stir well to combine. Cook simmering until reduced by 1/3 and a nice shiny glaze.

Open beer and pour half into drip tray in the centre of the BBQ, place can, with remaining beer into the cavity of the chicken. Season chicken well with sea salt and rub with oil. Cook covered for 15mins then baste with glaze. Continue glazing every 15mins.

Cook for 45-60min or until chicken cooked through (internal temperature of chicken should reach 75C). Remove from BBQ and allow to rest (15mins) on beer can, once rested, remove beer can and serve.
