The Weber poultry infusion roaster takes beer can chicken to an all-new level for your charcoal or gas grill. The roaster includes three parts; the base, the infuser and a neck stopper. Because the chicken sits on the base, chances of grill flare-ups are lessened since the fat and grease from the chicken never reaches the heat source. The Weber poultry infusion roaster can be found at most stores where barbecue supplies are sold or online.
Fill the base of the roaster with the liquid of your choice.
Add up to 2 tbsp of spices to the liquid. Good choices are poultry seasoning, Italian herbs or mixed Tex-Mex spices.
Place the infuser into the base and position the chicken over the infuser by sliding the infuser into the larger cavity of the bird. Press down to fully secure the chicken to the infuser and base.
Place the plug into the neck cavity.
Position the infuser on the cooking grate of your grill over medium coals and cook until the chicken registers 73.9 degrees Celsius on a thermometer inserted into the thickest portions of the bird.
- Weber does not recommend using alcoholic spirits for the liquid in the roaster as this can cause flame flare-ups if spilt onto the coals or heating elements.
- By setting the Weber poultry roaster inside a roasting pan or baking dish, you can roast the chicken in a traditional oven.
