I'm having some people over for the Florida vs. Ohio State game tomorrow night and I'm cooking up a citrus feast. I'm brining a very large hen, a medium hen, and two cornish hens. I have a favorite brine that I like to use which consists of: 1 gallon of water 1/2 gallon of orange juice 1/4 gallon of apple-cranberry juice 1/2 cup of lemon juice 1/2 cup of lime juice 1/3 cup soy sauce 1/3 cup maple syrup two diced apples twenty sliced grapes 7-8 sticks of cinnamon 7-8 bunches of mint 2 cups kosher salt 2 cups turbinado sugar 1 cup light brown sugar 1/2 cup lemon pepper salt seasoning I'm also going to use Bad Byron's Butt Rub on both hens, but I want to try something else for the cornish hens. Does anyone have a suggestion for a glaze or something else? I just got the birds in the brine and I'll put them on around 11 a.m. tomorrow morning to cook until kickoff, around 7 p.m. in the evening. I love this forum, I've already learned so much.
