Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
Line a broiler pan with foil, open the Game bird package & find an empty beer or soda can and fill to the brim with beer & insert it into the bird.
Rub dry ingredients on the bird.
VERY IMPORTANT – THE BEER CAN MUST BE OPENED AT THE TOP…otherwise it will explode in your oven.
Place the bird atop the can (really give it a good shove, get it in there good & solid) place the bird in the middle of the broiler pan & then place pan in the middle of your oven.
Set the timer for 45 minutes.
When you think the bird is done, usually in about 45 minutes (check the thigh joint to see if the juices run clear, smaller birds don’t take as long as bigger ones) remove the tray from the oven & ever so gently extract the can from the bird’s behind (it will be very hot so be careful!). Slice the bird from stem to stern while still atop the can, makes extraction easier.
