Next, you need to discard the neck, giblets and any excess fat from the chicken. Then rinse the chicken, inside and out, under cold water and pat it dry with paper towels. Brush or spray a light coating of vegetable oil all over the chicken, and then season with the dry rub, both the inside and outside of the chicken.
Open the beer can and pour off (or drink) half of the beer. Set the half full can of beer on a flat surface and slie the chicken over the top so the can is inside the chicken's cavity.
Set your weber grill up for indirect medium heat, between 350° F - 450° F. Then carefully place the chicken upright on the weber grill, using the legs for balance. Cook the chicken until juices run clear or the breast reaches 170°F and the thigh reaches 180°F, 1-1/4 to 1-1/2 hours. Keep the lid closed as much as possible during the cooking process.
Wearing barbecue mitts, carefully remove the chicken and the can from the weber grill. Be careful not to spill the beer. Let the chicken rest for 10 minutes before lifting it from the can. Discard the beer and carve the chicken into pieces for serving. The weber grill recipe of chicken is ready to serve...enjoy !
