Beer Butt Chicken and Roasted Potatoes

Since we didn't get finished with our rescue event until 4 o'clock today we decided to skip out on the family dinner. We had dogs to get home to and we were both worn out. I am not sure where this meal came from but this is what we decided to make. An excuse for Daniel to grill something.

Daniel's Beer Butt Chicken:
1 whole chicken
1 can beer
Dry Rub

1.) Rub down your chicken with your favorite dry rub, making sure that it is smeared in all the nooks and crannies.
2.) Take your beer can and set in the middle of your charcoal grill, make sure you pop the tab. Place chicken over the can of beer.
3.) Grill for about 2 hours, rotating the chicken every half an hour.

Katie's Roasted Potatoes~
Dozen small red potatoes, diced up
2 tbsp. rosemary
onion powder
extra virgin olive oil

1.) Preheat oven to 400 degrees Fahrenheit.
2.) On a baking dish add potatoes and drizzle with extra virgin olive oil. Sprinkle with rosemary, a good helping of salt, a couple of pinches of pepper, and about a 2 tsp. of onion powder. With your hands toss the potatoes.
3.) Bake for about an hour or until golden brown.

Oh my - this looks so good! I came across your page by way of a Canadian friend of mine who got a hold of your cabbage roll soup recipe. So glad I've found your recipe blog!

Very interesting! Do you think the beer added anything to the flavor?
