The chicken with something hanging from its butt is so funny.:D

I made grilled chicken with a can of beer just once when my daughter asked, not inasal though. And you are right, it makes the bird moist and tasty.

BTW, I baste chicken inasal with melted Star margarine, a Filipino brand. I don't know if it makes a difference in flavor but some Filipinos swear it does.

Nicely done! I love the color the oil gives the chicken.

This looks so so delicious! And beer can chicken inasal is just GENIUS! I have been so curious about beer can chicken ever since I heard about it...but I don't have a grill :( Is there anyway possible to make it without one? Like in the oven? I know it wont taste the same...

it looks soooooooooo good.
hahaha! the picture was hilarious!
when i hadn't scrolled down yet, it looked like a buddha head...
Genius, kuya.

Nothing is quite as beautiful as poultry with a can of alcohol shoved up its backside.

I've never tried to make beer-can chicken. I've always tried to avoid food that makes me giggle - increases the choking risk, I guess. Your recipe looks like it adds enough flavor besides beer to make me want to give it a go!

I have been doing "beer can chicken" for a number of years now, but I'm not sure mine has ever turned out looking quite as good as yours.

Congratulations a job well done.

Now I'm torn. I was going to try root beer chicken this weekend and let the chicken dry up before oven roasting (I don't have a barbecue) so I could get some crispy skin, but this sounds awesome, too ... and dang, it looks awesome.

Yum...I've never had beer can chicken but I hear about it a lot and need to try it someday. Thanks for the step by step!

Your writing is always such a pleasure to read as you are thorough in your explanations.

I've never tried roasting chicken upright before.

try it with san miguel beer

Lemongrass, ginger, kalamansi juice, vinegar, sounds like my kind of marinade. I'd bake it and shove some lemongrass and kalamansi up the poor chicken's hole though. Err, ugh, yeah, you know what I mean.

Blue Ribbon, what? Not a Filipino brand?

What does coconut vinegar taste like? I just noticed it the other day at the grocery store and was intrigued.

Wow, that looks so delicious! You've got me drooling here. I know what I'm going to cook for dinner today. Thanks!

oh la lala, your chicken inasal in beer looks like a real king!!! no better way to serve it but with rice and atsara :-) you just made my day!!

YES!!! I love chicken inasal. I'm very particular about it too-- I have tasted inasals that I have deemed unworthy, hahaha. Yours looks fantastic. I wonder if light beer works, hahaha. We don't have a holder, though. That's hardcore.

You served it with atchara-- I was thinking that. Excellent. I eat mine lightly basted with a mix of soy sauce and crushed bird's eye chilis. I don't have the stomach for the vinegar with nematodes swimming in it.

I first heard about beer can bbq chicken on the Paula Deen show (don't ask me what I was doing watching the Paula Deen show) and thought it was a fab idea! With lemongrass and ginger, it sounds even yummier! So someone had given me a similar recipe for marinating beef kebabs but the beer gets poured into the marinade. Sound familiar? Excellent photo btw!

while actually reading your post, a neighbor of ours seems to be also grilling chicken barbecue! So, the post has become sooo yummy sensory!

I think your photo is just too cartoon-y! Haha! But I do love chicken inasal and will write down your interesting recipe asap! I just hope my husband find chicken seated on top of a beer can just as sensible!

Thanks, Marvin!

OMG, this is hands down the best beer can chicken I've ever seen! We've made BCC a couple of times, but it really didn't do a lot for us. We're going to try your recipe next weekend. Lemongrass in Filipino cooking is a revelation for me.

Where did you purchase the can holders/stands? They look so much more stable than just balancing the chicken on the can.....and I have lost a few chickens to the coals that way.


Marvin - I've read several posts on beer can chicken but yours is the most hilarious! Even your picture is funnier than most. Haha, and the basting photo where the chicken has his hand on his hip...this is too much.
Thanks for the good advice not to drink the hot beer....

Star margarine, oggi? I'll look for that brand next time, although I am weary of margarine.

Thanks TK. The achuete gives it a nice orange-red glow.

Hi joey! Yes, you can definitely make this in the oven, although you will be missing the smokiness from the grill. Just put the beer and chicken in a pan that will catch the drippings.

Thank you very much, Jamie Anne.

Very true, Janice. It is quite beautiful;)

Hello Fearless Kitchen! Yes, besides the beer, the inasal marinade adds even more to the flavor.

Thanks DocChuck!

Root beer chicken sounds awesome Julie. And drying out the chicken to get a crisp skin is a great idea.

No problem, Hillary. You should definitely give it a try as it isn't hard at all.

Thanks very much, Cynthia!

Hello Mabuhay! I looked for san mig in cans, but I couldn't find any!

I couldn't find filipino beer in cans, WC. Sad, but true. And coconut vinegar is somewhat mild compared to apple cider vinegar. I should do a taste test like you did with fish sauces!

No prob, Babette. I hope it turns out ok;)

Hi dhanggit! It was especially good with the atsara!

Nematodes, manggy? Your making me paranoid now!

You could do worse than Paula Deen, Pat;) And the kebabs marinated in beer does sound familiar--my dad does it with pork though.

There's nothing more sensible than a chicken sitting on beer, bernadette!

Thanks for the comment, manju! And this was also my first time using lemongrass actually, but every inasal recipe I've seen uses it.

Hello CV. It's been a couple years, but I think I purchased the can holder at a kitchen gadget store like bed bath and beyond, although I've seen the holders sold at the hardware store where the grills and barbecues are displayed as well.

I'm glad you found it funny Lori Lynn! Thanks for visiting my blog.

That chicken looks exactly like my chubby hubby!! LOL!!

lol, it looks so inviting in that sitting position!!! Nicely done (looks and I bet the taste is as well!)

I've been lurking on your site for quite a while. I had to comment on this post in order to thank you, thank you thank you for a barbecued chicken inasal recipe.

One of my Mom's dear friends when I was growing up was a Filipina lady who lived near us. There wasn't a whole heckuva lot of "exotic" cooking going on in rural Northern Michigan at the time so Tecla was THRILLED to have people who loved to eat her cooking (read: my family!) My favorites were her lumpia, adobo chicken and INASAL! While I regularly make lumpia and adobo for my big old family, I had forgotten about inasal until I read this post.

The beer can chicken is one we've done for a while here (my sons refer to it as "beer butt chicken".) I'll be making it inasal style very, very soon!

wow, i can't believe no one here commented about the link between the aluminium can and your food and the link of causing alzheimers. everyone knows you never use a can to smoke because of the repercussions

wow,amazing!the inasal was delicious i don't control myself for taste it! but how can i do because its a monitor

let's drink some beer!!!!

let's drink some beer!!!!

We love to do beer can chicken and your marinade sounds fabulous - I'm so looking forward to making it (I'm one of those folks who doesn't like bbq in cold weather, so it will wait for Spring (right around the corner here). Also, I have a beer can chicken "roost" that will do 4, count em, 4 chickens at one time! And it's 18/10 stainless too... Don't know if they are still available but I got it online from someplace in the South (US). Love your blog!

this was a great recipe. i especially thank you for making it detailed for people like me who have always been afraid of whole chickens + grills... =)

I love chicken inasal. It is one of my comfort food. I usually go to a restaurant to enjoy one. Now I can ask my family to help me make one at home. Thanks for this awesome recipe. Thanks for this nice post.

OMG! The pic's gross!

hahahahaha! i love beer can chicken, it is truly a redneck delight. and now there is a mestizo version to satisfy my cultural sensibilities! awesome!!!

oh, and-

i seriously doubt that the occasional aluminum can up a bird's butt is going to cause alzheimer's. just make sure none of your other "cookware" is aluminum...
