Beer Can Chicken and Spicy Peppercorn Rub

Spicy Peppercorn Rub Ingredients
Rub Ingredients:
1 1/2 TBSP Paprika
1 1/2 tsp. garlic powder
1 1/2 tsp. cayenne pepper
1 1/2 tsp. mustard powder
1/4 tsp. ground sage
1 TBSP Voodoo Seasoning (or Cajun Seasoning)
2 tsp. kosher salt
1 TBSP. pepper

You will also need:
1 chicken
1 12 oz. can of beer (regular lager or stout)
Olive oil

Mix your rub ingredients together.  Wash and dry chicken with paper towels.  Massage olive oil over chicken, dust outside and inside of chicken generously with rub.  Pour out about 1/4 cup of beer and poke several holes around the top of the can to allow for even distribution of vapor/steam.

Place bottom of chicken over the can and set in a deep dish container if you want to catch the juices.

Two ways to cook your bird:

1) In the oven at 350 for 1 1/2 hours
2) On the preheated grill for 1 1/2 hours

Serve with a side salad and couscous.
