Slow Cooker BBQ Whole Chicken

My sister Robin sent me this recipe and it was immediately added to the menu. I loved the hint of curry the rub added.

3 T paprika (I used smoked)
3 T brown sugar
2 T salt
1 T mustard powder
1 T garlic powder
1 T onion powder
1 t curry powder
1/2 t cayenne pepper
1 whole chicken

Mix rub ingredients in a small bowl. Rub chicken with about 1/3 of mixture, reserving remainder for later use. Add chicken to a large ziploc bag or large container with a tightly fitting lid and refrigerate several hours or overnight.

1 cup beer
1 cup crushed tomatoes
1 small red onion, chopped
2 T Worcestershire sauce
1 1 T hot sauce
splash liquid smoke
salt and pepper to taste
remaining rub mixture

Add rubbed chicken and sauce ingredients to slow cooker and cover. Cook chicken on high 4 hours or low 6-8 hours or til chicken is cooked through and pretty much falls apart.

I served the chicken with a little sauce and alongside some homemade macaroni and cheese.
