IPKAT PATENT OF THE MONTH: DRINK UP!


Some may say that the IPKat is scraping the bottom of the barrel, but your favourite feline is never chicken when it comes to bringing you the latest IP news.

eMediaWire reports that BassPro and Cajun ChickCan have settled their patent dispute, with BassPro agreeing to buy all equipment covered by the patents in question from Cajun Chickcan’s licensed distributors in future. The patents in question cover devices for making “Beer Butt Chicken”. It appears that the recipe for this delicacy is rather popular across the Pond.

“The trick is to make sure that the can, inserted in the posterior end of the bird, is at least half-filled with liquid, which seasons and moistens the chicken with flavorful steam” say the article. The can in question can be filled with beer or any other non-diet beverage.

The IPKat says, the poor chicken. What a way to go…

Thanks for a wonderful recipe. Too late for today's lunch but it will be next Sunday's surprise. Special Brew will be preferable to Bud.
