Cherry Smoked Cornish Hens

posted in: Chicken 0

Using friends as my Guinea Pigs while I’m learning the Ins-and-Outs of my MAK 2 Star.  Last night’s menu was Cherry Smoked Cornish Hens, Roasted Red Potatoes, Portabella Mushrooms with Seafood Stuffing, and a green salad.

Here are the Cornish Hens (~1.8 lbs each) rubbed with EVOO and Fagundes Seasoning

Applied an hour of Cherry Smoke.  In a plastic bag, combined diced red potatoes with EVOO and Lipton Onion Soup Mix.  Placed taters in a medium baking dish and into the upper rack.  After the hour of Cheery Smoke, bumped the temp to 350º

Portabella Mushrooms with Seafood Stuffing take about 20 to 30 minutes at 350º.

Pulled the Cornish Hens when Internal Temperature hit 168º and rested under a foil tent for 20 minutes.

No money $shots … Everything looked and tasted so good that we all devoured everything like a pack of starving wolves … We’ll show more self control next time!!   Ya Right  Grin Grin
