In some parts of the country, grilling is solely a summer affair. Thanks to pleasant autumns and mild winters, Southerners can grill their favorite meats year-round. Next time you’re hosting a backyard tailgate or relaxed fall party, fire up the grill and treat your guests to this easy beer can chicken recipe.Southern Living Test Kitchen Professional Ivy Odom simplified this Southern favorite by trading a whole chicken for drumsticks and the fuss of a beer can for an overnight marinade. You’ll get all the juicy flavor of classic beer can chicken without the hassle. If you’re hosting a party you have a few other things to focus on, right? Marinate these drumsticks the night before the big game, and you can spend the day of your tailgate preparing sides, decorating the porch in your school’s colors, and setting up the TV. When your guests arrive, find them seats, hand them drinks, and then grill the legs. You’ll love the crispy char and smoky flavor that a few minutes on the grill gives these beer can chicken drumsticks.
