Reheat smoked cornish game hens??

  1. Hello all, looking for a little advice. I want to smoke some hens then take them to the mountains for our Thanksgiving getaway. I would be heating them up in a gas oven. I plan on brining and then injecting with creole butter. Has anyone done similar to this? I really don't want to dry them out or overcook the little guys. Thanks

    Here is where a Sous Vide machine is real helpful again. Bag it at home, take with you frozen then throw into the bath for about90 min. at 140 and your hens are hot , not overcooked and still moist. A friend said Wall Mart is now selling some for about $49.00

    Or just put them in a ziploc bag and throw into a pot of hot water. Me? I'd probably just put 'em in a large baking pan, add about 1/2 or 1/4 inch of water to the bottom and cover to heat.

    I agree. Sous Vide is the way to go. That’s how I reheat my briskey
