I love poultry, Rock not so much, but he does really like Cornish Game Hens.
Heat the following until kosher salt and sugar dissolves.
1 qt homemade chicken stock
1/2 c kosher salt
1/4 c pure cane sugar
1 Tbsp coarse cracked black pepper
2 bay leaves
1 tsp dried tarragon
1 tsp thyme
2 Tbsp Chix Bubba Q Rub (found here on the forum)
1 qt grapefruit juice (normally I use orange juice but didn't have any)
Remove from heat and add 2 qt ice water. Let cool completely before adding poultry.
I let the hens hang out in the pool for 3 hours. Remove them and rinse, pat dry.
Rub with a thin coat of extra virgin olive oil and sprinkled with Chix Bubba Q Rub
Propane smoker was preheated to 240° and added apple and oak for smoke.
I smoked these to 155° IT in the thigh, then put them on the hot grill for saucing and thigh IT temp of 165°.
Sauced one with homemade Alabama White Sauce and the other with KC Masterpiece Southern Style.
This is mine with Alabama White Sauce
Thanks for looking!
