Try this easy method for cooking chicken on the grill. OLD BAY® Seasoning rubbed onto chicken creates crisp, flavorful skin. Cooking the bird over a can of Flying Dog® OLD BAY Summer Ale infuses it with the refreshing taste of the ale while keeping meat tender and juicy. Yum! 



3 tablespoons OLD BAY® Seasoning

3 tablespoons packed brown sugar

1 whole chicken ,about 5 pounds

1 tablespoon olive oil

1 can (12 ounces) Flying Dog® Dead Rise OLD BAY® Summer Ale



Prepare grill for indirect medium heat (325°F to 375°F). Preheat grill by turning all burners to medium. Turn off burner(s) on one side of grill.

Mix OLD BAY and sugar in small bowl. Rub chicken with oil. Rub cavity with 1 tablespoon of the seasoning mixture. Sprinkle remaining seasoning mixture under skin and over surface of chicken.

Remove about 1/4 cup beer and poke 2 holes in top of can. Hold chicken upright (legs pointing down) and insert opened beer can into cavity. Stand chicken in upright position on unlit side of grill. Position legs to best support chicken (similar to a tripod). Close lid.

Grill chicken 1 1/2 hours or until cooked through (internal temperature reaches 165°F in the thigh). Remove chicken from can before serving.
