I tried brining a pair of cornish hens today.Awesome!I took a turkey brine that I found on line and brined the birds for 5 hours and rubbed them with a commercial rub,then threw them in the smoker for 2 hours.My wife is not a very big eater and she has never ate more than 1/2 of a cornish hen but tonite she wiped out a whole bird!I think all the birds will be in a brine from now on.I have a buddy who has been after me to do a couple pheasants for him,I did a pair for him before and he liked them but I wasnt happy.I am anxious to try this now.
Sorry posted in wrong forum should have been in poultry as I did this in smoker not on the grill but the next time I grill some yardbird ya can bet it will be brined first. is reader supported and as an Amazon Associate, we may earn commissions from qualifying purchases.
