FAQ Subject: Do I brine before smoke cooking cornish hens?
I would like to smoke cook cornish hens but am lost as to [ do i brine them or dry season them ] I can do both , but which is better?
Clean and dry them and pop them in the grill at 350° for about 1 hour.
I usually salt and pepper them, maybe stick some rosemary or thyme or basil in the cavity or a little coarsely chopped onion, celery and apple then put them on a rack over a shallow pan with about 1/4" water to keep the first drippings from burning.
