Hi Treegje,

I think this is a personal preference thing and it largely depends on how you want the skin.

If you do it without a water pan you will get a crispier skin, however some people try half and half e.g half of the cook with a water pan and the end of the cook without.

To be honest I generally grill my beer can chickens over indirect heat, so I separate the coals so they are banked on either side of the coal basket, I then remove the top stacker, and then cook them for 1 hours 45m to 2 hours.

I rely on the beer in the can to keep the chicken moist rather than a water pan. I'm sure you will get many variations on this method.

Please post your best results, good luck!

Try it at a higher temp (300f ish) & if your not using a water pan, put the chicken on a disposable aluminum food tray to catch the fat drippings, if these go on the coals you can end up with flare ups.
