Easter Dinner- Soul Fusion Style

Rack of Lamb, Smoked Cornish Hens, Mac n Cheese, Corn Pudding, Southern Greens, Monkey Bread, and Soy Bean Succatosh

Rack of Lamb rubbed with a mixture of
6 garlic cloves
handful of curly leaf parsley
1/4 cup fresh rosemary sprigs stem removed
1 tablespoon of fresh oregano
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon coarse ground pepper 1/2 cup olive oil
combine all above and process in food processor until coasely ground

Lamb was cooked in a 400 degree oven until internal temperature of 142 (medium rare). the rack was slicedinto chops and arranged on the platter.

6 whole Cornish Hens washed and cleaned brined for 2 hours in a mixture containing 1 gallon water, 1 cup kosher salt, 1 cup packed brown sugar, 1/4 cup marsala wine and 2 tablespoons of my special seasoning blend. Each hen was removed from brine, patted dry and stuffed with a sprig of rosemary.

The WSM was prepared with charcoal and pecan wood. The hens were smoked for about 4 hours until the breast temp hit 165 degrees.

Cornish hens cut into quarters for serving.
