    I've been wanting to try some cornish hens for a while now and it seems like every time I start I don't get to...so with the Weekend Challenge taken place I'm after em again.

    The lady's are taken a brine bath that I worked up on the fly...salt, demerara sugar, garlic, onion, molasses, basil, and seems like I through something else in but can't remember.

    I think I will do one with my apple rub and another with spicy commercial rub that I have.

    Qview will be added a little later.

    They look great. I've never tried doing cornish. They look so good, I'll have to give them a try.

    The spicy was Spicy Chicken Rub from CookShack, it came with my Amerique cooker which I no longer have.

    The Apple Rub is the recipe I have posted here in the Sauces, Rubs, and Marinades forum and it suites our family the best. So I guess I would call it the winner although I thought both were pretty good.
