New Beer Can Chicken Coming to Popeyes This Fall?

GrubGrade reader Christian informed me that based on the promo merchandise ordering site for Popeyes, there’s a new Beer Can Chicken coming in September.

Beer Can Chicken PopeyesThe product looks to be featured September 22nd through October 26th.  We’ll keep you posted on this when we get more details, but if you aren’t familiar with beer can chicken… the Wikipedia entry says it’s:

…made by standing a prepared chicken upright on a partially filled can of beer and cooking it slowly in a barbecue or oven.  Most people who use this method believe that placing the can into the opening of the chicken so that the beer evaporates and permeates the cooking chicken.

    If their “Chicken and Waffles” is any indication, i’m not holding my breath.

      It’ll probably be some half baked attempt that tastes nothing like the original inspiration, like the chicken and waffles. Probably their normal chicken strips with a “beer flavored” dipping sauce. That seems to be their standard M.O.

    They had it at my Pops (little while back), but I couldn’t figure out what in the heck it was, so I just went with my standard order.

    I can confirm this. I went into Popeye’s last week, and they had those little folded advertisement cards on the tables featuring the beercan chicken.
