Mexican beer can chicken

Serves 4-6

Maybe the juiciest chicken ever. Oh no - I am so not kidding.


  • 1 whole 3-5 pound chicken
  • 1 can of beer
  • 1/4 cup chili powder
  • 2 tbs cumin
  • 2 tbs oregano
  • 2 tbs garlic powder
  • A big pinch of Kosher salt
  • juice of 3 limes


  1. Pre-heat grill or oven to 375
  2. Mix Chili Powder, Cumin, Oregano, Garlic Powder & Kosher Salt well in a small bowl
  3. Pour out or drink about 1/2 of the beer and add about a 1/4 of the mixed seasoning to the beer can
  4. To remaining dry seasonings, add lime juice & mix into a paste
  5. Line baking sheet (for oven), or grill safe pan (for grill) with foil
  6. Insert beer can into the large opening of the chicken (you know what I mean here) then place on sheet or grill pan
  7. Rub seasoning paste on chicken to completely cover
  8. Put chicken in oven or grill and cook for 1 1/2 hours - or until a thermometer reads about 160 in the breast

Think you know Sam? You may know him as "The Cooking Guy", but this Today Show regular with 12 Emmys, two television series, two cookbooks and a 3rd on the way didn't always cook (in fact he hardly ever cooked). Like others, he worked his way through many different jobs looking for the 'right' career.

Sam LIVE! is Sam doing what he loves to do, but this time on stage and in a way he's never done it before using mixed media with video, audio, photos etc. He'll be cooking, entertaining, talking about food, telling stories and sharing the often painful yet hilarious details of his mid-life career change that ended with him on tv.
