This Oberon Beer Chicken W/ Dizzy Pig Spices on The Big Green Egg is packed full of flavor. Oberon beer is an excellent local favorite that is rapidly growing fame across the US. Its semi fruity flavors will really help keep the inside of the chicken nice and moist along with adding flavor.

This Oberon Beer Chicken is also packed with bold spices from Dizzy Pig which include Shakin’ the Tree, IPA & Bayou-ish seasonings.

The Shakin’ the Tree by Dizzy Pig has a Gourmet Lemon Pepper flavor. As stated by Dizzy Pig, its tangy flavor of citrus is from real lemon zest and the sharp and circuitousness is balanced enough to compliment many meats.

The Bayou-ish seasoning is a blackening seasoning that is an ideal balance of fresh herbs, spices, peppercorns and chilies.

The IPA seasoning is a hop infused seasoning blend. This Dizzy Pig creation is a masterful blend that balances the flavor of hops with citrus and chilies into one seasoning.

Cooking The Oberon Beer Chicken

Img 0117

The Big Green Egg should be dialed into about 350 degrees. Set the Oberon Chicken on the BGE and insert the Probes.

Put one probe in the thickest part of the breast and the other in the thigh. These are the two areas that will take the longest to cook and you don’t want any rare spots in the chicken.

Img 0119

To help keep the Oberon Chicken moist simply add some water to the drip tray below the grate. Close the lid and let it cook.

Once the Oberon Chicken reaches 175 degrees it is done.

Pull the probes out and set them aside.

What is the approximate cooking time?

Roughly an hour and a half to two hours for a whole chicken. This obviously varies on the size of the bird as well. Just make sure the internal temp is above 165. Good luck and enjoy!
