The ingredients for making Easy Applewood Smoked Cornish Hens Recipes

  1. six Cornish Game Hens
  2. 8 TBS McCormick Bruschetta Sweet Basil

    Step-step making Applewood Smoked Cornish Hens

    1. Make the brine: Mix kosher salt and water, let dissolve completely. It could take an hour or more. You can also add in some seasoning if you want to, anything you put in the brine will adhere to the meat.

    2. Place game hens and brine in brine bag and place in fridge for 2 to 3 hours.

    3. Remove hens from brine and rinse thoroughly.

    4. Spatchcock the hens, remove the back bone and butterfly. (You can google how to do this)

    5. Cover each hen with 1 TBS of olive oil.

    6. Use at least 1 TBS of seasoning on each hen (this depends on your flavor palate and how much seasoning you like)

    7. Place hens breast up on your grill/smoker and smoke until internal temp reaches 165 degrees. I use an igrill so I do not have to open the lid until they are complete.
