Rotisserie BBQ Cornish Game Hens
120 mins (prep 30, cooking 90)
17 ingredients
1-2 servings
This is a recipe I use when I am in the mood for BBQ Cornish hens (or about a 3 pound chicken)without firing up my grill or smoker. I have one of those Toaster Ovens that have a rotisserie built into them. I simply rub the hens (or chicken) down with the rub, set the timer to 60 minutes and the temperature to Max and if I wanted to, walk away. But instead, I like to baste my birds so they turn out moist and flavorful.The combination of the rub (Very Spicy) and the "mop" (Very sweet) reminds me of a girl I once knew - oops! Another story!! The apple juice is a great addition to a mop because it is not an overpowering flavor, and adds sweetness to the meat. This recipe works well in a sprayer, but can also be brushed on. Shake well each time before spraying. Both the rub and the mop can be used on the grill (Gas or charcoal)
