Beer Chicken on the Big Green Egg

We love our Big Green Egg and be sure to keep coming back as we will be posting new videos and recipes that we just know you will enjoy!

This recipe is super easy.  We have a chicken throne and it fills a 12 ounce beer. If you don't have one just use the beer can.  We also love all of the amazing seasonings from Moms Gourmet.

Tip:  We used an aluminum disposable pan to place the chicken throne on and chicken.  Great for a quick clean up!  Also, get a kitchen spray bottle with water, chicken broth or apple juice to baste.




  • 4-5 pound whole roaster chicken
  • Olive oil
  • Kosher salt
  • Freshly ground pepper
  • Moms Gourmet Black Dog Belly Rub
  • 1 can beer


  1. Heat Big Green Egg to 375 degrees.  

  2. Take chicken and remove any giblets.  Rinse with cold water then pat with a clean paper towel.  Place chicken throne (or beer can) on your aluminum disposable pan. Place in your chicken.  Set the lets as if they are standing.  (let the chicken get to room temperature)

  3. Rub olive oil around the bird then season salt and pepper.  Take the black dog belly rub in the palm of your hands and coat the entire bird.  (I massaged a little while coating the bird).  But a little water in the pan.

  4. When your EGG is heated place the pan with the chicken in the center and close the lid.  To time doneness I used 20 minutes per pound.  The internal temperature in the thigh should be 170 degrees F.  Baste every 20 minutes lightly. 

  5. Remove chicken from throne (or beer can) and set on a carving board.  Let rest for about 10 minutes then carve to enjoy!
