I purchased a stand from Canadian Tire for this recipe, well worth the few dollars!




  • 1/3 cup brown sugar
  • 1/2 tbsp cayenne pepper
  • 2 tbsp paprika
  • 2 tsp dry mustard
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/4 tsp pepper


  • 1/2 can of beer


Preheat your grill to 375 degrees F.  Mix all dry ingredients.  Place chicken legs down on the beer can.  Place in stand or on a grill safe plate.  Sprinkle 1 Tbsp of seasoning into the top cavity of the chicken.  Rub the remaining seasoning onto the chicken and under the skin. Place the chicken on the grill , close the lid and cook until a internal temperature of 185 degrees F is reached.  Approximately 1 hour 15 minutes for a 3 pound bird. Remove from grill and tent in tinfoil for 15 mins before cuttin
