Since the day we got the new smoker earlier this year, we've become obsessed trying different recipes smoking a variety kinds of meat O(∩_∩)O~ I did a smoked Cornish hen this time with a little bit of Asian twist in it. It turns out gorgeous and quite tasty. It might just be our new favorite!
Add ground white pepper, rice cooking wine, sugar, soy sauce and salt to a medium bowl. Whisk while slowly adding water to the bowl.
