Campfire recipe: Roasted beer can chicken

I have been thinking to cook a whole chicken on a campfire for a while. Recently I saw this trick to do it in an easy way.

What you will need:

  • Whole chicken
  • Half can of beer
  • butter
  • herbs
  • a string


  1. Insert the herbs and the the half can of beer into the chicken.
  2. Find a stick with a branch where the chicken can can rest on, insert the stick.
  3. Attach a rope to the stick and suspend the chicken next to the fire.
  4. Apply butter to the outside of the chicken to prevent it from burning.
  5. Spin the chicken around so that the thread is twisted.
  6. Let it go and the chicken should start spinning by it’s own.
  7. Repeat from 4
