One of the best ways to spend a late summer evening is to enjoy an excellent charcoaled chicken and a cold, refreshing beer. Some brilliant person came up with the great idea to combine the two. This is done by cooking the chicken over a can of beer. This not only looks cool and tastes great, but the chickens usually have even browning on the exterior and the dark and light meat both cook at appropriate temperatures.
Beer: delicious. Cheese: delicious. What’s the best thing to do with two delicious items? Combine them of course! Beer cheese is a Kentucky favorite, and can be turned into soup, fondue, dip, and sauce.
