A Twist on the Beer Can Chicken

We decided it would be interesting to try wine in the beer can instead of beer.  In addition, we got some fresh mushroom pasta at the farmeers market along with the usual fresh vegetables.  So, in the can, we put some white wine, some mushroom stems, 2 or 3 cloves of garlic and some fresh sage.  The 5 lb. chicken cooked for about 90 min on the Weber.  The veggies were added while the bird rested before carving.  The drippings we caught were used to make a roux that was thinned with the wine/stock mixture made as the chicken cooked.  The gravy had a nice mushroom/spice flavor.  To prepare the classic beer can chicken, this will give you the idea.  There are many such sites on the web.
