    I wanted to try some Rooster Booster on poultry...

    I brined some cornish game hens in a mix of water, kosher salt, sugar, and red pepper flakes.



    then placed some little smokie slices and butter under the skin...



    rubbed them with more butter and sprinkled with Rooster Booster...



    smoked in my drum with some rice.... the potatoes and onion were for another dish.




    I loved the Rooster Booster. :)



    The skin was crisp and the meat was moist.





    Thanks for looking!

    Always some fine looking meals you prepare, the one hen sitting in the brine like a jacuzzi had me laughing. [​IMG]for putting a big smile on my face.
    Never heard of Rooster booster before.

    Great pics as usual! I can't believe I still haven't tried your "sausage under the skin" trick yet. [​IMG]

    I have suggested she make a little bikini out of bay leaves. Maybe I will talk her into it one of these days.

    Another great looking meal, Jeanie! You should have some of my sourdough bread to go with that. [​IMG]

    Looks to me like the male is kicked back in the hot tub while his lady friend is...oh wait. Nevermind, family show.

    Great looking smoke Jeanie!

    Little Smokies under the skin, I never would have thought of that.

    I was thinking the same thing. hahaha Funny picture. Either that or he is trying to climb is butt out of the brine because he knows what happens after his little bath. haha
