When ready to cook, set Traeger to smoke. Once grill starts to smoke, then smoke dissipates and starts to fire - change setting to 225 degrees.
Close lid and preheat to 225.
Rinse chicken and pat dry
Mix together all dry seasonings and rub all over chicken
Open can of beer and drink about 1/3 can - just to make sure it's still good
Take your beer, chicken and a pan out to the grill (It can be a rimmed baking sheet - or any grill safe pan larger than the bird that you can pick up - I used one of those grill skillets for vegetables)
Place pan on grill. Tilt the chicken in your left hand and shove that open beer can up the wazoo of the chicken. Stand the bird/beer up on the pan in the grill. It may tip so be sure to shut the lid and reopen - make sure your bird is still standing.
Smoke at 225 for 3.5 hours
Turn temp up to 350 and continue for 30 minutes until thermometer reads 160
Let rest for 15 minutes before carving
