I'm amazed at the number of people I've run across - in various parts of the country- who all have a version of this easy outdoor cooking recipe. The whole chicken looks kind pretty humorous perched upon its beer can throne, but the final product is a delicious, moist bird that's always a hit at cookouts.
Start with your beer at room temperature. The right brand seems to be a hot debate among my friends. Some insist on light beer because it's more bubbly, while others go for exotic dark brews or favorite drinking brands.
You can use any marinade you choose for your chicken. For the marinade below, I like to use lime instead of lemon juice and a good Mexican beer Corona, or Bud lime. You'll have to experiment to find which brand of beer you prefer.
1 whole frying chicken
1 can, 12 oz. beer
1/2 C fresh lemon or lime juice
1/2 C fresh orange juice
1/3 C olive oil
1 tablespoon minced garlic
1/4 C minced cilantro
1/2 teaspoon cayenne pepper
1/2 - 1 minced, seeded jalapeņo pepper (more or less depending on how much heat you like)
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon black pepper
Mix all marinade ingredients together. Place chicken in a large plastic zipper bag and pour in the marinade, squeeze excess air from the bag and refrigerate for at least 6 hours or overnight.
Preheat grill to medium-hot temperature. Place a roasting pan on the grill, open a can of beer and carefully sit the chicken on top of the open can and set both the can and the chicken in the roasting pan on the grill (make sure you have previously removed the chicken's gizzards). The beer will bubble and boil during cooking, basting the bird from the inside. Brush bird with reserved marinade every 20 minutes or so. Bird should be cooked in about an hour, or however long it takes the breast meat to register 180° F on a meat thermometer.

And one real recipe, unless you can get your hands on that camel.
Sweet Chicken Bacon Wraps
1 1/4 pounds boneless, skinless, chicken breasts or chicken tenderloins (about 4 breasts)
1 (1-pound) package thin sliced bacon
2/3 cup firmly packed brown sugar
2 tablespoons chili powder
Toothpicks, soaked in water for 15-30 minutes.
Swiss cheese optional but better
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
Stir together brown sugar and chili powder. Cut each bacon slice into thirds or desired length in order to overlap enough to secure with toothpick, about 5-6 inches total. Cut chicken breasts or tenderloins into 1-inch cubes. For the Swiss cheese option, slice chicken cubes in half and add a small piece of cheese into the slice. Dredge chicken into sugar and spice mixture. Wrap each chicken cube with bacon and secure with a wooden pick. Dredge bacon wrapped chicken in mixture. Coat a rack and broiler pan with nonstick cooking spray. Place chicken wrap on rack in broiler pan. Bake 350 for 30 minutes or until bacon is crisp.

A suggestion. . . . Next time you plan on sausage, eggs, and hashbrowns, substitute the sausage with a good hot italian sausage.
While I'm not much for drinking, a nice complement to this breakfast would be a nice single malt scotch. . . . Glenmorangie comes to mind.

1 box yellow cake mix (anything but Pillsbury.. for some reason it makes em nasty)
1 cup (you can add more if you want) of anything you want.. i.e. m&ms or chocolate chips or white chocolate or penut butter
1/4 C. Oil
Preheat oven to 350 degrees and lightly grease a cookie sheet (probably two or three if you have em and don't feel like waiting for so many batches)
Mix all wet ingredients and cake mix until smooth. Add your fave ingredient (the chocolate chips or whatever). Spoon mixture (each spoonful should be heaping tablespoon) about 1-1/2-2 inches apart on cookie sheet. Bake for about 10 mins. Allow to cool for at least 20 mins before taking them off the cookie sheet.
These things will literally melt in your mouth.

Tuna Avocado Salad
This is a really easy lunch or dinner recipe that my boys can't get enough of. It's a spunky twist on traditional tuna salad & makes it a little healthier.
2 hard-boiled eggs
1/2 Tbsp lemon juice
1 sm. can tuna
3 Tbsp mayonnaise
1/2 cup onion, chopped
2 Tbsp dill pickles, chopped
2 tsp hot pepper sauce
1/2 tsp salt
1 head lettuce, shredded
In a bowel, combine hard-boiled eggs with avocado. Mash well with a fork. Add lemon juice to avoid discoloration. In a serving bowl, mix tuna, mayonnaise, onions, pickles, hot pepper sauce, & salt. Stir in the egg mixture. Serve over shredded lettuce (I never do the shredded lettuce thing - I just serve it in bowls with crackers to dip in it, or the boys eat it plain.).
