Recipe by THOMAS ELLEFSON
"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."
Hmm. None of these ingredients are on sale today.

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.
