I brined the cornish game hens for a few hours in a mixture of water, kosher salt, turbinado sugar, onions, and garlic....
rubbed the birds with butter, placed more butter under the skin, then seasoned.
I smoked the hens in my drum at about 300F...using hickory
I sauted onions and garlic in butter, added the rice, water and seasoning package... then smoked on the Memphis Pro at 190 for about 20 minutes. Then raised the temp to 350F and let it cook uncovered until all of the liquid was absorbed. I didn't time the cook.
also smoked some dinner rolls...
Another successful deer camp meal.
It was actually an easy meal to make... I might have to make this again next year. :)
