  • This is one my favorite things to do with a whole fryer during the "grilling" season. I made it Sunday and this time I stuffed the insides with an orange, onions and jalopeno peppers. It was great. - 5/26/09

  • Ive made this and used a can of pop/soda instead of the beer. I also ran my hands down under the skin so I could sprinkle the rub directly on the meat under the skin to give the chicken meat more flavor. An onion can also be used for stuffing the top of the chicken to retain moisture. - 5/9/08
