BBQ Chicken is a perfect summer meal idea!  With a few simple ingredients you can have the most tender and delicious roasted chicken!


  • 13 to 4 lb whole chicken
  • 12 tbsp olive oil
  • salt & pepper to taste (I like to use Lawry’s Seasoning Salt!)
  • 1 can of beer (I like to use darker beer as I think it has more flavour)
  • a couple of sprigs of fresh rosemary (you can use dried too)
  • 25 cloves of garlic (chopped)


  1. Have your BBQ preheated to medium heat.
  2. Lightly brush your chicken with olive oil. Season with salt & pepper.
  3. Empty half of your can of beer into a cup, and set aside (Do not drink it! You still need it!)
  4. In the can, add your rosemary and garlic.
  5. Place the can in the centre of the roaster (as in the picture above).
  6. Then, place your chicken on to the roaster.
  7. Take the remaining beer, and pour it into the pan of the roaster.
  8. BBQ on medium heat, with the lid closed until the juices run clear, and the internal temperature is 160-165 degrees (about 20 minutes/lb). My chickens have take a little over an hour. Just watch carefully, and take the temperature occasionally.
  9. Also, if the wings start to blacken, just tent/cover the chicken with some tin foil.
