National BBQ Week has begun – time to step things up

To celebrate National BBQ Week, May 27 to June 2, Weber has launched its Beer Chicken campaign to have you fully equipped with a delicious hero dish to impress your guests…

 

Weber’s Mexican Beer Chicken

Serves 4-6 people
Difficulty level Medium
Preparation time
10 minutes
Additional preparation
0
Grill time 1 hour 10 minutes
Grill temperature 180°C
Grill method Indirect
Equipment
GBS Poultry Roaster
Core temperature 75°C

Ingredients
1kg whole free-range chicken
1 tbsp rapeseed oil
1 bottle Mexican beer (Corona)
2 wedges of lime
1 split red chilli

For the rub
2 tsp smoked paprika
2 tsp soft brown sugar
2 tsp dried oregano
1 tsp cumin, seeds ground
1 tsp chilli flakes
zest of 1 lime
salt and freshly ground black pepper

Method
In the kitchen:
First, make the rub for the chicken by finely grinding all the ingredients in a pestle and mortar.

Lightly oil the exterior of the chicken and evenly coat with the rub.

Half fill the GBS Poultry roaster cup with the beer followed by the lime wedges and chilli.

Place chicken onto the GBS Poultry Roaster cup, making sure the chicken is stable and upright. Cut a wedge of the remaining lime and plug the neck cavity of the chicken. This will help keep all the scented steam in the carcass and stop it from escaping.

If desired, a selection of lightly oiled and seasoned mixed peppers can be added to the base of the GBS Poultry Roaster at this point.

At the barbecue: Prepare the barbecue for indirect heat, approx 180°C. If using a charcoal barbecue, you need ½ chimney starter of lit briquettes.

Roast the chicken over an indirect medium heat for approximately 1 hour 10 minutes or until the meat has reached 75°C. It is recommended to probe the meat with an instant read or iGrill Thermometer.

Allow the chicken to rest for 10 minutes before carving.

 

 

National BBQ Week runs Monday, May 27 to Sunday, June 2. To celebrate their Beer Chicken campaign, Weber will give away a complimentary Poultry Roaster with selected barbecues purchased before June 30. For the full list of BBQs included in the promotion, and for recipe inspiration and information, visit weber.com/ie.
