Looks good brother, Now don't laugh but I don't think I have ever eaten cornish game hen. I have read several post that they are mentioned in. I was wandering what sets them apart from a reg. chicken?

nice job on the birds, I made a couple of beercan chickens too, but for somereason or the other it came out bland, had plenty of rub (basic), my smoke flavor was really mild...the beer really made it moist.

Cornish Hens aren’t necessarily female as the name implies. They can also be known as Cornish Game Hens or Rock Cornish Hens. They were created in the 1950’s as a single serving chicken. They are the result of the cross breeding of multiple poultry varieties. They are "harvested" when the chicks are 4-5 weeks old.

Instead of a 12 oz can, I've used those little cans of 7Up, Sprite, or Dr. Pepper in Cornish Hens. I think they are 4-6 oz cans. Something like that. Kiddie sized.
