Start with 2 hens...



Leftover pulled pork finely chopped...



Add some cornbread stuffing...





Stuffed the game hens and seasoned with John Henry's Chicken Tickler...



Infuser loaded with cherry pellets and chips. Onto the gas grill side burner on high with a 5 minute pre-heat ...



And in they go. See you in 60 minutes...



One Artichoke...



Split...



Then into the steamer for 20 minutes...



Unsalted butter, minced garlic, and Big Poppa's Desert Gold Seasoning...



Melt in the nuclear infuser(microwave)...



Then brush the Artichokes on all sides with the butter...



Fired up the Memphis with the grill zone insert. Time for the Artichokes to get grilled for a few minutes...





Artichokes are done. Plated with Chipotle Mayo for dipping...





After a 150F reading in the backside of the hens with my Thermapen I pulled them off the heat...





Hen plated with a Red Romaine salad topped with Lox, Parmesan Cheese, Peppercorn Asiago dressing, and Capers...

Beautiful as always. Cornish Game Hens are one of my favorites and this gives me a new way to do them. I normally don't like artichokes but these look delicious.

Outstanding!
The only confusing part to me was the leftover pulled pork. Never heard of such an animal. ;-)

Where does one get this infuser I keep seeing?

I don't have the space for a grill to benefit from it, but wouldn't mind
putting it in the vault for later.

Muebe:  As usual, over the top and using all of your toys.  Just curious about the 150 degree temperature on the hens.  Seems low, but they sure look like they are OK?

Coastal - the infuser is a new product available on the Char-Broil website for around $25.  I don't know if they are in any retail locations yet, but I'm sure they will show up in the future.
