I thought I would ask for opinions on an idea I've been playing around with for Christmas. My idea is to brine Cornish hens, layer them with bacon, glaze each one with straight honey, and then smoking them. My only concern is that I've never smoked anything with honey before, and all the recipes I've found have had the honey mixed with other ingredients. Can I smoke a bird with just honey, or do I need to mix it with something else? Any input you guys could give me would be appreciated. Thanks and Merry Christmas!
