Cooking Method

  1. For the Chicken: Make sure chicken is clean and dry. Rub with oil and Mrs Rogers spice blend. Open your beer can and take a few sips – you want the can to be around ¾ full. Lift your bird and mount the cavity over the open beer can. Transfer your beer can chicken to your BBQ griddle, balancing the bird with the 2 legs and beer can. Cook the chook over a medium indirect heat (180C) for roughly 1hr – 1hr 15, or until the juice runs clear. Rest for 10 minutes before serving.
  2. For the Dressing: Blitz the avocado, garlic, Greek yoghurt, worcestershire sauce, lemon and anchovy fillets in a food processor until you have a smooth dressing.
  3. For the Caesar: Dress the cos with the avocado yoghurt dressing and sprinkle with parmesan.
  4. Serve chicken alongside caesar with a crispy cold can of beer and devour while hot!
