Cornish Hens

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
I am smoking a couple cornish hens for Xmas and I am new to the smoking world. I was planning on using a peach wood. Any tips on temps or rubs??

Re: Cornish Hens

I smoke the hens at 225-250*until they are at 160 internal temp.I also brine them and use a rub,I have not made my own rubs yet so I have been using either McCormicks chicken rub or famous daves chicken rub.I think that brining them makes a huge difference.

Re: Cornish Hens

I was just lookin back at some earlier threads and if the brine inrterests you there are 3 or 4 turkey threads in a row and there are 2 or 3 different brine recipes and none of them sound bad to me.The last cornish hens I did I brined about 4 hours.
