  2. garlic granules to taste

  3. ground black pepper to taste

  1. Preheat barbecue for high heat.

  2. In a microwave-safe bowl, combine the beer, butter, 1 tablespoon garlic granules and seasoned pepper. Heat in the microwave for 2 minutes or until butter is melted and mixture is hot. Set aside.

  3. Season chicken generously with the garlic granules, ground black pepper and seasoned salt to taste.

  4. Brush the barbecue cooking grate with oil. Place chicken onto the barbecue bone side down. Close the lid and cook for about 45 minutes or until the chicken skin is starting to blister.

  5. Turn the chicken over, so it is bone side up. They will be black and charred, but the chicken meat will be fine. Pierce the membrane of the bone with a fork and ladle some of the beer mixture into the 'cup' formed by the bones. Throw a teaspoon or so of garlic granules on the coals, close the lid and seal the vents.

  6. Repeat ladling the beer mixture into the chicken and throwing garlic granules onto the coals every 5 minutes, until the mixture is gone. The chicken should be tender and juices should run clear.
