Almost-Beer Can Chicken...

Postby Sailor Kenshin » Sat Jul 14, 2018 5:11 pm

...a sad tale with happy ending.

A day ago, we bought a whole chicken in order to beer-can it. This was purchased at a la di dah (aka 'SPENSIVE) supermarket down the road apiece. When we opened the package, a putrid stench billowed from the chicken, making us gag. Turns out, most of the guts had been left in. Seriously horrible, and it's going back to the store.

Maybe we shouldn't have shopped on Friday the 13th?

Here are the spilled guts:

Ended up rushing to the local, non la di dah super, bought a split, pre-seasoned chicken. Smelled fine. Poured some beer on the bone side, grilled indirect, then flipped after 20 minutes. Some SB TX Pecan was sprinkled on the skin side at that time.

It was good.

Served with the usual salady sides.

I guess in hindsight it was a bad sign when a black cat crossed my path as I was walking under a ladder when buying the chicken and someone called at me, "Room for one more chicken, Honey." :laughing7:

Good move on the decision to chunk da chicken - - - - any time I get any bird that doesn't smell clean and fresh, I don't use it - - - thank goodness it hasn't happened that often but I do sniff my birds no matter what :tup: :salut: plate looks great :cheers: P.B. maybe we should see about getting you a Mojo Bone from Marie Laveaux :dont: :laughing7:

Havnt had a bad bit of meat in a long long time. Wife shops at a top end supermarket, bit dearer than most but always fresh.

Don’t mess around with a funky chicken. Good call on the audible

Been there, done that on the bad meat. You've seen the posts, LOL.

Looks like a textbook case of improvise, adapt and overcome though. That final meal looks plenty tasty. :tup: :salut: :chef:

The store manager was decent about returning the chicken; might have something to do with the fact that, as soon as she opened the package, she gagged. :laughing7:

Also the fact that she wanted to keep it top secret in case other customers were in earshot, lol.
