    To beer, or not to beer.

    I had a discussion with a very opinionated friend regarding beer can chicken.

    A while back I read an article that debunked it. I do not care for Alton Brown, but science takes over here and explains.

    It is against the laws of physics, chemistry and culinary science.
    Meathead: Debunking Beer Can Chicken: A Waste Of Good Beer (And It Is Dangerous)

    we only tested using cans of beer. Since then we have seen additional claims regarding different devices and different beers, so we went back to amend our testing. In our first go round, we found that beer in a can will not boil. But what about using one of those metal racks/pans for holding the can? What about those porcelain chicken and turkey sitter devices? What about Weber's pan/cup combo device? Also, we didn't document the beer we used in the first test, so this time, we will repeat the beer/no beer test using the "best" device and using a known beer.

    Direct beer application works better.

    Inspired by the fun and flavorful chicken-roasting method, Beer Can Chicken Seasoning is a unique savory seasoning. Put politely: itís a less invasive but equally delicious method for infusing your whole chicken with that signature beer-bathed flavor. This seasoning is designed to bring out the best in your whole chicken, giving it herb-infused skin with a tender beer-bathed taste inside. Itís also an excellent on chicken breasts, turkey, or pork chops.

    That product might contain beer flavor.

    I've never cooked beer can chicken, not for any particular reason though.

    The ice creams in these links use real beer, but there are liquid and powdered beer flavors used in the food industry in various applications. A few years ago I used a beer flavor in a beef appetizer demo, the shredded beef was served in a miniature tortilla shell and topped with maple scented creme fraiche. It was delicious.
