well i just finished my meal and to say the least is was awesome and that's not just my opinion. i ended up mixing the allspice with the poultry seasoning and also injested the bird with a mesquite marinade. the hard apple cider i used was hornsby's if you have never tried it you should. and my wife accidently grabbed hickory wood chips used em anyway came out great. haven't had a bad beer can chicken yet.has to be the best way to cook a bird.
