Grilled Beer Marinated Chicken

Beer Can Chicken is a great way to ensure that your chicken stays moist and tender on the grill, and your family will love it. It takes a little time but it's well worth the wait.
  Chickens 8 Pound (2 In Number, 4 Pounds Each)
  Beer 2 Can (20 oz)
  Garlic 6 Clove (30 gm)
  Extra virgin olive oil 1 Tablespoon
For the rub
  Dry mustard 1 Tablespoon
  Salt 1⁄2 Tablespoon
  Garlic powder 1 Tablespoon
  Red pepper 1⁄2 Teaspoon
  White pepper 1⁄2 Teaspoon
  Chili powder 2 Tablespoon
  Paprika 1 Tablespoon
  Black pepper 1 Tablespoon
  Coriander 1⁄2 Teaspoon
  Brown sugar 3 Tablespoon

Make sure chickens are clean and clear of any giblets. Coat each chicken well with the extra virgin olive oil and dry rub. Open the beer cans and pour out about ¼ to ½ of the beer, crush the garlic and place in the beer cans. Once you have everything prepped, insert the cans in the cavity of the chickens. Place the chickens on indirect heat with coals on ether side and cook at 300 degrees for three hours. Add a little hickory on top of your coals to give it a little smoky flavor. After you pull it off the grill, let it sit for about 5 minutes, carve and serve.
