2 Using kitchen shears, remove the backbone from each game hen by cutting along one side of the backbone. Repeat with the other side and discard. This will allow the birds to lie flat on the grill planks. 3 Pat the birds dry with paper towels and then liberally brush with vegetable oil. The oil will help the seasoning adhere. Season all over with garlic salt and the ras el hanout spice blend. 49 4 Set up your grill for raised direct cooking and stabilize at 300°F. Cooking at this temperature will allow the game hens to retain moisture while roasting but will also promote browning and crisping of the skin.

Add the whiskey away from the heat and the alcohol will evaporate in a couple of minutes. 9 Add as much of the cream as needed to coat the mushrooms well, but we’re not making soup, so don’t drown them.

One way I enjoy celebrating is with this cylindrical spin on the classic corned beef dinner: the corned beef and cabbage egg roll. Corned beef, wilted cabbage, cream cheese, and a sliver of Swiss cheese get rolled up in a wonton wrapper and quickly fried in duck fat on top of my kamado.
