I used this on a cornish hens and it worked great! I did reduce smoke time due to them being smaller than a whole chicken. Tarragon is not an herb I am real familiar but I really liked it with this and it didn't overpower whatsoever. I actually recommend using more of it. Simple and delicious recipe! Read More
