Alternative to beer in Beer Can Chicken

The whole chicken thread made me think…Before W30, my favorite way to cook chicken was Leinie Heinie chicken, or beer can chicken. Open a can of beer, place it in a stand, and place the bird over the can, and cook the whole thing on the grill. De-freakin'-licious!

I'm assuming this is not permitted on W30 (even though it's just “beer vapor†coming out of the can). But has anyone ever tried this method with another canned beverage, like sparkling water? Or can you put another vessel in the can compartment and fill it with say chicken broth and lemon?

Would a can of soda water work in place of the beer? I'm assuming that its just extra moisture so not to dry the chicken out? But I've never made beer can chicken before

@Derval - how I miss proper cider. Americans "hard" cider just isn't the same!!
