    I'm behind the times.. lol
    after heating the grill I turn all burners down to half and cook about 2 hours
    until internal temp is 170
    also dont forget to fill the pan with water once it is on the grill
    besides keeping the outside juicy
    it also prevents the grease from baking onto the pan

    I read online once of the dad or brother that secretly shoved a cornish hen inside a turkey that the daughter or sister was cooking for her very first time on Thanksgiving; when they sliced and diced it open the guy incredulously claims, "Oh my God, you cooked a pregnant turkey"... It freaked the girl out enough she broke down crying and they were never able to convince her that turkeys come from eggs...

    My favorite turkey trick is to buy a lemon that has tips on both ends; slice the lemon in half across the fruit (not lengthwise); use a knife or fingers to separate the skin from the breast meat and slide the lemon halves under the skin tips up so the juice will seep into the breast meat during cooking in the oven (breast up)... When it's done and the skin browns and shrinks your turkey will have cute little titties, great conversation for your Thanksgiving table... Cheers

    Just did my first chicken on Sunday.

    Good stuff. Need a little more practice, but it was more than edible.

    Did you put them in a pan of water? helps keep em from drying out
    also it does not take as long as you may think to cook them
    I just check the internal temp until it gets to 170
    usually less then 2 hours

    Yes, I used the water.

    Didn't open the top of the beer can.

    Meat was very juicy and flavorful.

    I think I want to experiment with some rubs and flavor injections.

    I am never satisfied with my own cooking.

    you can also add spices to the beer cans
    and it cooks inside the meat

    I never seen the potato trick. Makes sense. I'll have to remember that next time.

    Good tips guys. I'm gonna try that tomorrow. I'll need at least a 12 pack. At least I don't have to get the chicken drunk.
