    Tried some Cornish hens on the UDS.  Brined in buttermilk, s/p, and sugar for 4hrs.  fired the UDS up to 250deg and threw on the birds.  At 140deg applied a raspberry orange chipotle glaze.  Cooked 'um 'til 165deg and pulled to rest for 15min.  They came out pretty darn tasty!

  9. i will have to try these cornish hens, i guess they are a lot like chicken, can you use the same seasoning for them too. or do you use something better.

    I am thinking that teriyaki would work out great on them
     
  11. i will have to try that, thats a easy way to try them yard birds.

    You can use the same seasoning, but I brined mine with salt and pepper.  So I did not use salt and pepper as a rub...too overpowering.
