I have been watching a few videos on cooking chicken this and one guy brought up the question about where the Coloring material on the can go. Did it burn up and the chicken absorbed it? I also saw a lady cooking one using a Sprite can and when the bird was done, the can seemed to be unaffected. What is your experience doing this?

I had the same concern and these holders help. I as well as others believe the flavor comes more from the position of the chicken more than the beer itself. I've also seen folks put in oven safe dishes filled with beer in the bottom as well.

i almost always use Miller Lite cans. seem to be a lot of them around here, and i've never had the ink come off. i use indirect heat also. i put a 1/4 stick of butter in the 1/2 full can.

I have done them for years with no problem as to anything coming off the can. I don't think it matters what is in the can as it doesn't really get hot enough to evaporate. Therefore, I just put some water in it to help keep the chicken moist and have never been able to tell any difference in regards to taste. The taste comes from what you season it with. I douse it liberally with lemon/pepper both inside and out.

The Sittin' Chicken is the best I have used...slow smoke em and the bird slides off the holder easily.

Starting at the neck of the bird work your fingers between the skin and meat to separate soften a little bit of butter and mix it with your spices and rub it it between meat and skin - great results I also stick a whole jalapeño in neck hole it holds in steam from beer can

The Sitten Chicken holder looks good. I have a similar one that came from Canada as a gift. Works a lots better than the wire contraptions which almost require two people to get the chicken off after cooking. You pour liquid into the built-in "can" instead of using an actual can. Highly recommend getting one of these if you do them often.
