Default Question about beer can chicken

Quick question. How long should I wait after making pizzas to begin to cook a beer can chicken? Just a rough guide.
Thanks

It all depends on your oven and how quickly it cools down, all ovens cool at different rates.

Id be getting a thermometer in there and when the oven is around 250 to 300C chuck the chook in.

Thanks for answering. Just checked - don't think I will be able to fit the chicken through the door, but will have a go - even if it means struggling to make it stand.

Here is what I would do. Bend up 2 wires to go over the beer can in the shape shown on the attached picture. You should be able to assemble this just inside the entry of the oven and put the chicken on top. because the temperatures will not be extremely high.

cover your chicken with strips of bacon and use toothpicks to keep the bacon in place, the bacon then burns/crips before the chicken skin and it adds a devine flavour...

Haven't tried the bacon, sounds excellent! Beer can chicken has been one of my all time favorites, although when the garden was in full production I made a roast chicken with all sorts of veggies underneath. Then ran the veggies thru the processor to make the worlds best gravy! Awesome!

Yumm! I grow sage, rosemary and basil in the garden, so usually some combination of those with garlic cloves, celery and carrots in the cavity. Sounds like we're both on the same track! Next year I'll plant some thyme and give that a try. The roast with veggies is done in a roasting pan.
I'll bet you have the best olive oil!

Asimenia,

You can buy a stand everywhere, ebay, amazon, Walmart, etc... You should be able to slide the stand/can into the oven, then reach in and slide the chicken onto it. The temps are hot but fairly reasonable at the entry and the chicken is cold (so you only burn the back of your hands )

I pretty much cook a chicken on the day after pizza every time. Still working on the third day after fire menu.
