Cornish Hens today

  1. First attempt with them.  Doing a four hour brine, a rub, and couple hours over pecan.  May lay some bacon over them, haven't decided yet, brine should keep them moist but like I said first time.  Done tons of chicken and turkey and plan was to follow the same path.  With them being so small do they tend to dry out?  Any other tips?
     
  2. Turned out nice.
