Beer Can Chicken First Try - Forno Bravo Forum: The Wood-Fired Oven Community



Photo Galleries are back! Instructions below.

Dear forum users,
Thank you for your patience with the Photo galleries. We've got your galleries online!
We have finished writing a custom script to migrate the PhotoPlog to vBulletin5’s albums.

Unfortunately V-Bulletin killed the "Photoplogs" in their software upgrade which was unforeseen and we're the first development group to have written a script for getting the galleries back... that said, it took some time to reverse engineer the code and get the albums to move over seamlessly!

Forum users will be able to access their “PhotoPlog” images through their user profile page by clicking on the “Media” tab.
They will also be able to browse other albums by going to the albums page. (On the forum site, there is a link in the black bar beside “Forums” to the albums.)

In order for users to create an album please follow the steps below.
1) Go to user profile page and click “Media”
2) Click Add Photos
3) Enter Photo Gallery Title in the first field
4) Click Upload or Select from Photo Album to add photos
5) Click Post
6) Once posted, the album will be created as a “Topic” on the albums page for the public to see. The topic title will be the “Photo Gallery Title” they created before uploading their photos.

To create this migration path we used vBulletin5’s default album structure. Unfortunately, it won’t work like the “PhotoPlog” but is an album/gallery component on the forum now.

  • Beer Can Chicken First Try

    This was our first go at Beer Can Chicken, came out perfect, added some chopped lemon & spices to beer can & also tipped half of can liquid at finish to pan juices for a terrific gravy, will purchase a stand for future efforts as they are awkward to handle without one

    looks great.... I used a Heineken keg can for my first try, It was a tight fit but pretty stable.. I saved the can and the scond time filled it with white wine,, both times with TONS of garlic.. Both were great.

      Whew, I suddenly had an image of an 18 gallon keg!! now that would be a tight ft

      They are good fun, I am looking forward to try some more

      Someone also asked me what are the chances of aluminium poisoning from these, I hope none because they taste too good...

        I don't think you have to worry about the aluminium can as aluminum cookware is commonly used -- for example there are many dutch ovens which are not iron but aluminum which is lighter though I don't think it hold the heat like iron. I have a number of aluminum pans I cook in though I don't cook high acid foods like tomato sauce in them as they are reactive. There was a lot of fuss about alumunium a few years back concerning Altzheimers; studies found higher levels of aluminum in the brain of people with this illness as I recall and suddenly many people were worried about applying deodorant etc. But as I recall they were never able to establish a connection with dietary or skin-absorbed aluminum so the high levels likely were produced by the disease rather than exposure to aluminum causing the disease. You have to establish cause and effect not just correlation. It is like saying that you see many people with umbrellas when it rains, so carrying umbrellas causes it to rain.... So I wouldn't worry about the chicken resting on the metal of the can.

        PS-- If someone is convinced about aluminum being dangerous, I wouldn't make a big deal out of it but just offer them some pizza or flatbread instead. Many people hate to change their minds
