Grilled Herb Chicken on a Can

Make tender, juicy grilled chicken the trendiest way, with a can of beer! I've tried this before, and I'll tell you...it is really really good. I used the oven instead of the grill. I guess I will try this next time. You should try it too!
1tablespoon paprika
2teaspoons salt
1/2teaspoon garlic powder
1/2teaspoon onion powder
1/2teaspoon pepper
1whole chicken (4 to 4 1/2 lb)
1can (12 oz) regular or nonalcoholic beer

1.If using charcoal grill, place drip pan directly under grilling area, and arrange coals around edge of firebox. Heat coals or gas grill for indirect heat. In small bowl, mix paprika, salt, garlic powder, onion powder and pepper.
2.Fold wings of chicken across back with tips touching. Sprinkle paprika mixture inside cavity and over outside of chicken; rub with fingers.
3.Pour 1/2 cup of beer from can. Hold chicken upright, with opening of body cavity down; insert beer can into cavity. Insert barbecue meat thermometer so tip is in thickest part of inside thigh muscle and does not touch bone.
4.Cover and grill chicken upright over drip pan or over unheated side of gas grill over medium heat 1 hour 15 minutes to 1 hour 30 minutes or until thermometer reads 180°F and juice is no longer pink when center of thigh is cut.
5.Using tongs, carefully lift chicken and place in 13x9-inch pan, holding large metal spatula under beer can for support. Let stand 15 minutes before carving. Remove beer can; discard.
