My cornish hen was bland...

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 

Last weekend I tried a Cornish Hen, which is something new for me.  I used a rub I had made for my pork butt (typical eastern NC rub), and smoked it with applewood.  I also injected it with butter and garlic just under the skin.  I cooked it great, the skin was a bit crunchy, but the inside was very bland/no flavor.

 

It was a real disappointment, but I want to try it again.

 

Any ideas???
