Weber Poultry Roaster The surest sign that a backyard cooking fad has gained legitimacy is when a major manufacturer makes the original fad seem woefully inconvenient. The cooking craze is beer can chicken, in which a backyard barbecuer roasts a chicken perched atop a beer can, resulting in a crackly, crisp, succulent-flavored bird. Weber's poultry roaster does the process one-step better (and easier) by offering an aluminum tray with a cone-shaped infuser in the middle. Place the bird on the cone (rather than the can), fill the tray with beer, wine, fruit juice, or another flavoring agent, and place it on the grill.

The bird will fill with aromatic steam as it cooks to juicy perfection in less time than ordinary roasting. Plus, the bird removes easily when you're finished. For additional flavor, add a variety of spices to the reservoir. Now you no longer have to fret over balancing the bird-covered beer on the grill, nor figure out how to remove the beer can afterward. Who knew it could be so easy?
