Cornish Hens on the WSM

Smoked up some cornish hens in the WSM for Father's Day dinner. I brined them first with a brine made up of Hawaiian Jade sea salt, and Bell's poultry seasoning. I had a pile of leftover pieces of lump charcoal & wood from previous smokes ( mesquite, oak, hickory) so I used that and added some apple wood. Smoked them for about 3 hours, I think..... Did up a batch of my smoked baked beans, tossed salad and made some yummy corn bread. Only have a couple pictures, drank a few too many Caribbean Cosmo's before dinner and kinda forgot about the picture taking
The hens were moist and tender and perfectly smoked, and I didn't burn anything down !

Between the 4 of us we only ate 2 of them , no one could eat more than half of one! The rest make great leftovers...... I'm real big on " cooking extra ", leftovers are great !
I thought they came out looking "pretty cute" all trussed up and brown

The color was excellent! When I do them "beer can style", I have to use small apple juice cans. I'm also big into doing leftovers. It makes great lunches during the week.
