July 4th Beer Can Chicken

This Fourth of July we made a Beer Can Chicken. I learned this method on the Food Network a few years ago, and it is a fantastic way to cook mouth watering chicken. It is really simple. Just rub chicken with favorite spice rub, plug it up the butt with a 1/2 full beer, and cook on grill with indirect heat for 1 – 1 1/2 hours. Enjoy!

French Quarter Fest

Just a quick triptych from this weekend’s French Quarter Fest. Live music, food, and great weather make for a perfect beginning to 2010 festival season in New Orleans.
