I use and would reccomen the "Tipsy Chicken Cooker".
It's an aluminum Cylinder with an angled top welded to a baseplate. It works great it very stable, conducts heat well and is easy to clean.
I like the absence of a drip pan because I like the flavor the drippings put off. The aluminum plate does reduce flare ups.
They are available from the sites below for about $30.

They also make a larger unit for Turkeys although I don't think I'd trust it for birds bigger than 12 pounds. Their seasoning are pretty tasty too. I have not tried their new capsules yet.
If you can't find a unit you like, or don't want to spend the money I'd go with the .50 soda can.
Good Luck and Enjoy
