What Is Early Word? The Philadelphia Inquirer's experimental online "morning show", which began in Sept. 2005, went on hiatus in the summer of 2006, after a gradual shift to putting more of its content directly on Philly.com.
About the Host Peter Mucha, husband and father of two, grew up in Cherry Hill and is a lifelong Philly sports fan. He's been writing and editing for The Inquirer for 18 years.
His motto (at least for today): "If I'm not brief, give me grief."

Beer-Butt Chicken "Open beer can. Drink 6 ounces." Like the name. Like that line in the recipe. It's one of several for tailgaters in today's Food section. The story focuses on award-winning tailgater Bob Cavanaugh who cooked for a whopping 175 fans for Sunday's game at the Linc. Here's the story, with recipes at the end. Got recipe that tops these? Or a tailgating tale to tell? Oh, and why is it called Beer-Butt Chicken? There's no delicate way of putting this, but the half-filled can is strategically shoved so the bird perches atop it on the grill.
