"As viscous as motor oil swirled in a swamp, redolent of burnt bell peppers nested in by incontinent mice and a finish reminiscent of the dregs of a stale can of Coca-Cola that someone has been using as an ashtray. Not a bad drink, though."--Excerpt from "The Moose Turd Wine Tasting" by T. A. Nonymous

Directions:
Thaw chicken, if frozen. Remove giblets from chicken. Rinse chicken inside and out with cold running water; pat dry with paper towels. Move oven racks to the lowest level; heat oven to 350 degrees. Rub oil over all sides of chicken. In a small bowl, stir together the Cajun Seasoning and Old Bay Seasoning. Rub all over chicken and sprinkle some inside the cavity. Pour out half of the beer in the can or drink it! Place the half-filled can of beer in the center of a roasting pan. Carefully ease the cavity of the chicken onto the beer can, and pulling the legs forward to balance. Fold the wings back over the back. Carefully place upright chicken into oven. Bake for 1-3 to 2 hours, or until chicken is nicely browned and thoroughly cooked. The internal temperature should reach about 180 degrees when inserted into the thickest part of the thigh, and the legs should move freely at the joint. Using oven mitts, carefully remove chicken from oven. Allow chicken to rest for 10 minutes. Carefully lift chicken off can of beer and place on serving platter. Slice and serve.

Serves 4-6.
