Beer Chicken

We were looking on the Internet for a recipe and we found The site offered a metal rack to hold a chicken and a can of beer half full of beer and spices for roasting. I have seen people roast chickens on a beer can but this is the next level in "Beer Chicken" technology. The first thing to light up the bulb in our heads was the fact that the beer can was only half full to roast the chicken. We thought any roaster that requires us to drink beer to use it must be a great idea. We contacted Capt. Steve, the inventor of the beer chicken roaster, and he graciously sent us a roaster to test in the B.K. Lounge laboratory.

The chicken roaster is sturdy and well made. But this isn't the good part. The chicken is the good part. When it was done it was perfectly brown all over. I noticed the pan I had placed the roaster in had a substantial amount of grease in it and I was quietly happy my chicken was not sitting in it. When we removed the chicken from the roaster is when we realized how nicely our bird was cooked. I pulled the breasts out with my fingers and the legs practically fell off. I know some people will not eat the skin but it was so brown and crunchy that it never made it out of the kitchen anyway. If I had stuffing I would of rolled it up in the skin and ate it like a burrito. I can not wait to take the Beer Can Chicken Roaster camping.

Our next test involved a duck and a circus clown. Just kidding about the circus clown. The duck was roasted on the rack and we used Bourbon with the beer. There was a little concern about the Bourbon exploding and shooting the duck like a missile into our stratosphere, but after 50 minutes the duck was also perfect. You will find the duck recipe lower in this newsletter.

Although when you use this I am sure you will want to experiment with your own recipes. Capt. Steve offers a couple of recipes to get you started. Like Eileen's Caribbean Mojo Chicken and Mikes Honey BBQ Chicken.


Lounging With A Video:

The Mexican
Brad Pitt, Julia Roberts, Gene Hackman, Pheobe's father from Friends and a bunch of other people.

Honestly I only saw about 80% of this film. I enjoyed what I saw and the other 20% was spent waking up to Jen laughing. So I would have to make the deduction that it is a good movie and recommend it for lounging purposes.

Brad has a decision to make, die or go to Mexico to pick up a gun that is surrounded by bad luck and misfortune, depending who is telling the story. Julia adds to Brads misfortune by laying down the law about their relationship, go to Vegas and get married or get lost. Brads desire to live over rides his desire to be married and the story begins.

Beware of the worms

Study Complete
Four worms where placed n four separate jars. The first jar contained cigarette smoke. The second jar contained whiskey. The third jar contained sperm, and the last jar confined dirt.

After close observation for a week these findings where released. "The worms in the jars containing cigarette smoke, whiskey and sperm had all died. The worm in the dirt was healthy and strong."

It has been concluded if you drink, smoke and have a lot of sex, you will not get worms.

The B.K. Lounge Grill: Beer Can Duck Boiler Maker and slaw

As mentioned in the article at the top of the page, The B.K. Lounge has tested a product called the Beer Can Chicken Roaster. Although this recipe is for duck, it could be used with a chicken.

1 Duck, preferably plucked and ready to go.
1 Beer, preferably accompanied by more beer.
Kentucky Bourbon
1 Tablespoon brown sugar

Drink a little more than half the beer. Pour in a shot or two of Bourbon and the brown sugar.

Place beer can in the roaster. Put the duck on the roaster. Stand the roaster with duck on a shallow pan to catch the grease. Roast for about 50 minutes at 425 degrees in a preheated oven.

While duck is roasting have a cocktail and make the slaw.

Mom's Cole Slaw

1 egg
2 Tablespoons sugar
2 Tablespoons cider vinegar
1 Tablespoon water
couple shakes of salt
1/2 cup mayonnaise
1/4 head purple cabbage chopped slaw size
1/4 head green cabbage chopped slaw size
1/4 cup golden raisins
1/4 cup slivered almonds
1 Tablespoon chopped onion

Place first five (5) ingredients in a small sauce pan and stir continuously while cooking over medium heat. It will take on a creamy sauce consistency. Mix sauce with 1/2 cup of mayonnaise and remaining ingredients.
