I haven't seen many posts on Beer Can Chicken so I thought ya'll might enjoy this one. I smoke cooked 2 4.5 lb yardbirds on Saturday. About 3 oz of apple wood, a good coating of Chicky Rub, including some under the skin. Total time in the 040 was just short of 3 hours. I think the liquid in the beer cans (mainly apple juice) helped bring the birds up to temp quickly.
They came out very moist and tender but I did get the rubbery skin. Not really a problem for me though.
