Game Hens and Tatoes in the Drum

I like Rooster Booster on poultry..... I even sprinkle it on popcorn. :)








I slathered some cornish game hens in butter then sprinkled them with the Rooster Booster..




Then I sliced some potatoes, filled with bacon, drizzled with olive oil and sprinkled with kosher salt and cracked black pepper.

I got this recipe from Chris in Austria
(Thank you again!)





Smoked in my drum with some hickory. I used a temperature of 300 and they cooked for about 2 hours. I tested the potatoes for tenderness and removed the hens when they reached an internal temperature of 170.
Honestly.. I was busy doing something else and let the drum do the work. lol












The tatoes were sooooo good! Loved the bacon flavor...









The hens were moist and tender.. It was a nice meal after a half way busy day. :)

Hi
Looks good!
Mom told me "Never play with your food"
But now I know what a game hen is, I like one too ;-)
Not to play with it, just to eat it..of course
Thank you for the lesson

Looks very very tasty! I will have to get some Rooster Booster and give it a try. Although I know I will still prefer my Old Bay on popcorn
