Shouldn't matter, it won't really influence the flavour. It's purpose is more for the moisture from the steam it generates. You can use a plain old can of coke if you prefer as well.

Do you find much of the beer evaporates? i tried last summer and the chicken was moist but i don't think i lost any of the beer, other than what i drank .
What kind of spices do you rub your bird with??? i am looking for a premixed variety, we like Irie caribean spice, we also use lemon rind chooped, prochutio?, and time mixed in butter, put directly on meat under skin so it bakes in.

I've always liked a little Olive oil with a Chicago Chicken Spice (can be picked up in a large container at Costco) and a generous amount of salt on the inside.

Stick sprigs of rosemary and thyme in the can so that as the beer steams it will help to infuse the herbs!

I thought olive oil should not be heated/ cooked with becuse it can become bad for you/carcinagenic?, thats why they suggest vegitable oil or coconut oil for high heat.

I think its vegetable oil that releases toxins when heated? OO is one of the best oils, but it has a low smoke point, so is not good for cooking on high heat. Coconut oil has a much higher smoke point and is super healthy too.

Another one I've heard of but never tried is grapeseed oil... supposedly even better yet?
