Looking for tender chicken? This recipe has the answer; your chicken will be flavorful with the use of beer, chili powder, mustard and paprika.


  • 13 c. brown sugar
  • 2 tsp. chili powder
  • 1 tsp. onion powder
  • 2 tsp. paprika
  • 1 tsp. dry mustard
  • 1 tsp. Ac'cent Flavor Enhancer
  • ¼ tsp. ground black pepper
  • ½ can beer
  • 1 whole chicken


  1. Preheat grill to medium-high heat. Mix sugar, chili powder, onion powder, paprika, mustard, Ac'cent, and ground pepper in a small bowl. 
  2. Place half-full can of beer in center of plate. Rinse chicken under cold running water. Discard giblets and neck; drain and pat dry.
  3. Place chicken over beer can with legs at bottom; keep upright. Rub 1 teaspoon of seasoning mix into the top cavity of chicken. Rub remaining seasoning over surface of chicken.
  4. Preheat a grill. Place chicken on grill standing up on the beer can over indirect flames with the lid closed. Cook until no longer pink at the bone and juices run clear, about 1 hour and 15 minutes or until an instant-read thermometer reads 165 degrees.
  5. Remove chicken and discard beer can with tongs. Cover chicken with aluminum foil and set aside for 10 minutes before slicing.
