  • 1.5kg whole organic chicken

  • Pecan wood chips


A simple but effective roast chicken recipe using pecan wood chips for a delicate smoked flavour.

  • Place a couple of handfuls of pecan wood chips into water, to soak.
  • Rub the chicken with olive oil and season with salt and pepper or alternatively, a rub of your choice.
  • Clean the exterior of the beer can thoroughly under water. Open the can of beer and drink/pour away half of the liquid.
  • Put the can into the original poultry roaster and place the chicken over the beer can.
  • Roast the chicken over an indirect medium heat for approximately 1 ½ hours, or until the juices run clear. Add a handful of drained woodchips directly onto the coals at the beginning of cooking and half way through.
