Grill-Roasted Cornish Game Hens on a Charcoal Grill
Why This Recipe Works
Our ideal grilled game hen recipe would deliver smoky flavor, crisp skin, and moist meat. We found that by butterflying the birds we could keep all of the skin on one side, which meant it became crisp more quickly when placed facing the coals. Butterflying also produced a uniformly thick bird, promoting even cooking.
