"Beer can recipe using ranch dressing as a basting sauce. Really moist chicken. Drink half the can of beer and use the remainder for the recipe. It's summer, enjoy! You might even have time for another beer." — THOMAS ELLEFSON

This was my first attempt at beer butt chicken, and hopefully someone will give it a better picture than I did. It was very moist and flavorful, and that came mostly from the beer--even though I used Coors Light, a very lightweight beer! I had a difficult time getting the ranch dressing to stick to it, so my glaze didn't turn out quite like the author intended. I will look forward to trying it again after I read some helpful hints by other reviewers. Thanks for a great foray into beer butt chicken!
Good, very good.
