Fight Night Feasts - Beer Can Chicken and Proper No. Twelve - UFC 264

Fight Night Feasts – Beer Can Chicken and Proper No. Twelve – UFC 264

The Notorious one returns Saturday night at UFC 264. Conor McGregor will meet Dustin Poirier in a trilogy match to finally settle the score.

McGregor vs. Poirier 3 is without a doubt, the biggest UFC fight of the summer, possibly the year.

Since the fight did land smack dab in the middle of the summer, I chose to do a classic summer meal…. with a twist.

Today we are going to make a beer can chicken with a little Proper No. Twelve Irish Whiskey.


1 Whole Chicken

Seasoning – I chose to use McCormick’s Grill Mates Roast Garlic & Herb



Olive Oil

1 can of beer

Splash of Proper No. 12 Irish Whiskey



Light grill and heat to 385 degrees (if you have a digital thermometer)

Clean the chicken and then dress both the outside and inside with a light coat of olive oil.

Season the chicken with seasoning of your choice, salt and pepper.

If you have a beer can holder for the chicken, they help keep a strong flat base.  You can pick one up at Lowe’s in the grilling section.

Insert an open can of beer into the holder and up into the chicken.  Place on the grill.

Cook thoroughly, until an internal temperature of 165 degrees F.   Roughly an hour and a half to two hours on the grill.

Open your bottle of Proper No. Twelve Irish Whiskey and throw a dash on the top outer layer.   Will drip down.  Do away from flame.  Remove from grill if you have to.  Then replace.

Cook 2-3 more minutes.  Skin will be crispy.

Remove from grill.  Let rest for 10 minutes.  Carve.  Enjoy with a nice glass of Proper No. 12.
