    I just cook them, indirect, at 350* dome for 1 hour and then kick up to the dome temp for 10 minutes to brown them. They will come out like the ones you tasted in Waldorf.

    Cornfed,[p]Thanks for the quick help, guys. These will be accompanied by some Provencal stuffed tomatos ala Julia Childs (recipe to follow if they're any good). Also, FLT made some righteous garlic and cheese bread. We're washing this down with some of ST's macaroni salad and Chimay Red and Chimay White.[p]Have great days!

    Cornfed,[p]FYI - hens came out excellent!!! Also, the tomatoes were delicious. Bascically, you boil the tomatoes in water for about 10 seconds, then core and remove the skin (the boiling makes removing the skin trivial). Cut the tomatoes in half then squeeze the tomatoes and use some device (fingers or a paring knife (as I used)) to remove the extra juice and seeds. Next, combine breadcrumbs, parm cheese, herbs de provence, extra virgin olive oil, and some shallots in a bowl. Season the tomatoes to taste with salt and pepper, then stuff the insides with the stuffing mix. Just before cooking, drizzle some more ev olive oil and then bake for 20 minutes at 400*F.[p]The result is a light and delicious treat to add to some heavy meat meal. The only word I can think of to describe it is "hee." Might be a good use for those who have extra tomatoes this season...[p]...and for anyone wondering about JJ's game hen recipe...try it...came out super juicey and we were all fighting over the left over crust from the birds before eating it....[p]Later,
