Meal of the Week
Beer Can Chicken with Brussels Sprouts and Sweet Potatoes
Beer Can Chicken
Cooking Time: 1.5-2 hours
Cooking Temp: 350ºF
Wood: Maple or Apple
Pour beer or soda into chicken throne. *You can mix sauce and beer into the throne, this is a personal choice!*
Pat chicken down with a paper towel, and then rub skin with olive oil. Then season with
Sweet n Sassy rub.
Place some slices of apple into the throne, saving a piece to stuff in neck. Place chicken on throne tail side down just like it was in a sitting position. Take leftover apple chunk and place in the neck opening. We like to set our throne in a foil pan and then place the whole thing into the grill.
Cook at 350ºF until the internal temp reaches 165ºF, always checking in the "armpit".
Brussels Sprouts and Sweet Potatoes
1 lbs. of Brussels Sprouts
2-3 Sweet Potatoes
6-8 pieces of Bacon (or more, we won't judge)
1/4 cup Maple Syrup
Cooking Time: 20-30 minutes
Cooking Temp: 350-400ºF
Dice Sweet Potatoes and halve brussels sprouts and place in a foil pan.
Fry up your bacon and set it to the side till later. Take your maple syrup and mix into bacon grease. Pour your syrup/grease mixture over potatoes and Brussels sprouts.
Sprinkle with SPG and toss to fully incorporate.
Set inside grill and cook till potatoes are done, about 20-30 minutes. *You can cover with foil or leave uncovered. Depending on the amount of smokey flavor you want.*
Break cooked bacon into bits and add to veggies. Dig in!
