Everyone has heard of beer can chicken by now and it’s all over the web. I’ve been dying to try one and Cave Tools made it possible! The stainless steel roaster is well made and durable. I love the overall design and how easy it is to use. The set up and cleanup are both easy and quick. It arrives well packaged and protected. You have the tray, the rack, the can, and 2 spikes. It also comes with a downloadable recipe book and a manual sheet.
To set up, you’ll place the rack in the center of the tray. It offers a perfect fit. You’ll place the can in the center of the rack. Twist the can to lock it into place. You can also hook the spikes onto the side of the tray to use for corn or potatoes. The spikes are easy to connect to the side of the tray and stay in place.
The top of the can screws off so that you can fill it with a beverage of your choice. I personally don’t consume alcohol nor do I use it in cooking, so I like to use soda or juice. My favorite is a apple, bacon, and herb mix that is full of flavor. Once filled, you’ll screw the lid back on and place your pre-seasoned chicken. The chicken sits nicely on top and doesn’t tilt or fall over at all.
You can use this on the grill with indirect heat or in the oven. You can expect your chicken to cook within 1-1.5 hours on 350 degrees. The tray catches all those juices, which can be used for a sauce or gravy I prefer to let it soak for a minute before cleaning. You can hand wash it or toss it in the dishwasher. overall, I find this roaster easy to use and unique. I love the overall style and how durable it is. It’d make a nice addition to a grilling themed gift basket.
