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



I'm Peter Reinhart! Ask Me Anything! Monday, February 15, 2016 7:00-8:00 pm EST

To kick off our AMA feature, we have invited author, chef and master bread maker and host of Pizza Quest, Peter Reinhart, to be our first host! Peter will be in the Forum on Monday, February 15th, from 7:00 - 8:00 pm EST. If you are unable to be online during the live session, you can post your questions in the sticky post. Peter will answer those questions during the live session on February 15th. You can view Peter's answers to your questions as well as what happened during the live session in the session thread.

Ask Me Anything New Forum Feature

You will notice a new forum at the top of the main page called, "Ask Me Anything". This forum will be used for live one hour "Ask Me Anything" (AMA) sessions hosted by people who are knowledgeable in different areas pertaining to wood fired ovens. How it works:
- Each AMA will have a "sticky" thread where the community can post questions they would like answered during the live session. This will allow everyone to participate even if you can't be online for the live session. These questions will not be answered by the host until the live AMA; if you need an answer quickly, you should post it in the appropriate Forum area for the community to respond.
- Another thread will be posted for the live AMA. Registered users who are logged in during the live session can interact with the host by asking questions and receiving responses.
- The live thread will remain in the AMA forum to view after the session.

We hope you enjoy this new feature! Please let us know if there is a topic that you'd like to have as an AMA and we'll look for a host!

  • 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
