Dancing Chicken

2 (3 – 3 1/2 lb.) whole chickens
2 (12 oz.) cans beer or soft drink
Any dry grill rub seasoning
Salt and pepper

Pop the top off the beverage cans. Dispose of half of each beverage contents. Make a few more holes in top of can with a can opener. Clean and rinse chickens. Sprinkle about two teaspoons of seasoning into cavity. Rub chicken all over on outside with two teaspoons of seasoning, putting some of the rub under the skin and in the can. Insert beverage can into the body cavity of chicken and spread out legs to form a sort of tripod. Tuck wing tips behind chicken’s back. Preheat grill on high. Place chickens over foil pan and grill indirectly for 1 1/4 – 1 1/2 hours. Cook chicken until skin is dark golden brown and very crisp and meat is cooked through (about 180° on meat thermometer). Carefully remove cans from chickens, carve and serve.
