  1. 1 tablespoon kosher salt
  2. 1 teaspoon sugar
  3. 1 teaspoon onion powder
  4. 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  5. 1 teaspoon cayenne pepper
  6. 1 teaspoon paprika
  7. 1 teaspoon ground mustard
  8. 1 broiler/fryer chicken (3-1/2 to 4 pounds)
  9. 1 can (12 ounces) beer
  1. In a small bowl, combine the first seven ingredients. With fingers, carefully loosen skin from chicken; rub spice mixture under and over skin. Tuck wings under chicken. Refrigerate for 1 hour.

  4. Remove pan from grill; tent chicken with foil. Let stand 10 minutes. Carefully remove chicken from rack. Yield: 6 servings.
