Hey gang, I never smoked cornish hens and I want to surprise my wife with a nice dinner tonight, so I was going to do the hen's beans and baked potatoes. Anyway I've done some searches and saw that the suggested IT is 165*, I brought my chickens up to 175* why 10* less for the hens? The packaging says bring to an IT of 180*. Thanks for your help gents. I figure it should only take about 3 hours to cook so I'm going to thrown them on around 2, its 10:45 right now.
